  • Part of the Kalimantan 1:250 000 Geological/Geophysical mapping series prepared BMR in cooperation with Pusat Penelitian dan Pengembangan Geologi (Indonesia).

  • This dataset is part of a digital geological map of the Granites-Tanami Block which Australian Geological Survey Organisation has prepared by joining together as a seamless coverage 15 of the 1:250 000 geological maps which cover the province.The data layers in the digital map include geology, faults, lineaments structural data, mineral deposits and Australian Geological Survey Organisation drill hole locations. The digital data is available in Arcinfo/ Arcview or Mapinfo format. Topographic and cultural layers are not included: these can be purchased separately from AUSLIG.

  • In December, 1950, the Pakistan Government filed a formal application to Australia, through the Technical Assistance to South-East Asia Co-operation Scheme, for three geologists to carry out geophysical surveys in Pakistan. In May 1951, the geologists, J.F. Ivanac and D.M. Traves of the Bureau of Mineral Resources and D. King of the South Australian Mines Department, arrived in Pakistan. Their instructions were to carry out a geological survey of a portion of the Gilgit Agency, and to discuss with the Director of the Pakistan Geological Survey or any other Government Officer familiar with the problem, the alluvial gold deposits of Chitral River and the lignite deposits of West Bengal and Sind. Field investigations commenced from Gilgit in June 1951, and the party spent four months in the region. This report gives an account of the visit and the results of the investigation.

  • This digital data package comprises all available 1:100 000 scale first edition and unpublished preliminary geological maps of the Mount Isa Inlier, Murphy Tectonic Ridge, South Nicholson Basin and southern McArthur Basin. It also includes parts of the Mount Drummond and Lawn Hill 1:250 000 sheets which have not been mapped at 1:100 000 scale. The complete data set covers 19 full, 5 combined and 4 part 100,000 scale map sheets. All faults within this area have been coded uniquely to facilitate metallogenic analysis. The data, currently version 2.1, can be downloaded and comprises either MapInfo or Arcinfo/Arcview formats. For Arcview, unique legends have been created for the geology layers of each individual dataset, uniform across the whole of the Mount Isa dataset.

  • Geological investigations, survey work, and mapping were carried out in the vicinity of the Tennant Creek gold field between 1948 and 1950. This report provides an overview of the investigations carried out on the Enterprise, Patties, and Eldorado mines. The working, production history, and geological features of these areas are discussed.

  • A reconnaissance geological and radiometric survey of the Mt. Cavenagh area was carried out by B.P. Walpole and J. Sleis of the geological section and J. Daly and D. Dyson of the geophysical section of the Bureau of Mineral Resources. The objects of the survey were to examine reported occurrences of radioactive minerals in this area and to determine whether further prospecting of the area for radioactive orebodies was warranted. The general geology of the area, and the economic geology of the six prospects examined, are described in this report.

  • The Palaeozoic rocks of the Bonaparte Basin outcrop at the head and along the western side of Joseph Bonaparte Gulf and extend across the border between Western Australia and the Northern Territory. The Bonaparte Basin is the least known Palaeozoic basin in Australia, due partly to the remoteness of the area and the discouraging results of early coal explorations, and partly to the fact that the stratigraphical extent of the Palaeozoic sequence was only discovered in the last ten years. The Palaeozoic sequence so far established includes Cambrian, Ordovician, Devonian, Carboniferous and Permian sediments which rest on a pre-Cambrian basement and which are overlain in places by a mantle of Lower Cretaceous sediments. The authors intend in this paper to give an account of Carboniferous and Permian sediments of the Basin, as far as present knowledge permits, with briefer mention of the Lower Palaeozoic and Mesozoic sediments of the area.
