The PACE Copper Coompana Gravity Survey comprises over 13,000 new gravity observations in the state’s far west.

The area is largely underexplored and these data provide new insight into the underlying geology, with implications not only for the exploration community both locally and throughout South Australia, but also the economy of South Australia.

The Coompana area is prospective for gold, nickel, and copper. Exploration work in the area is currently being undertaken by OZ Exploration Pty Ltd.

The PACE Copper Coompana Gravity Survey dataset (survey code 2017A1) is available for download via the South Australian Resources Information Gateway (SARIG)
