HyLogger drillholes added to the NVCL – last three months

South Australian HyLoggerTM  data contributes to the AuScope National Virtual Core Library (NVCL). This update of holdings in the South Australian NVCL node alerts readers to newly released drillholes which are accessible for download through the South Australian Resource Information Gateway (SARIG). Summary images and download option for each drillhole are provided.

The updated holes include recently scanned drillholes, freshly reprocessed drillholes and some previously scanned drillholes that have become open file through the five-year company mineral exploration release program. The majority have been scanned by HyLogger 3‑3, but some are by earlier HyLoggers 1 and 2‑3.

Link to SARIG to access HyLogger drillholes:

Free HyLogger workshops are held once or twice a year by the Geological Survey of South Australia. The workshops look at the HyLogging analysis tools used to analyse spectral data and create products that can be integrated on other platforms.

Geophysical surveys added to SARIG’s spatial layers – June 2020

Airborne geophysical surveys, June 2020.
Airborne geophysical surveys recently uploaded to SARIG, June 2020. (PDF 1.3 MB).

While all geophysical surveys reported in open file company exploration reports are available via SARIG’s Georeference catalogue, they may not appear as a layer on SARIG yet. The map and table below lists the surveys that have been released and are now visible on SARIG since the final Gawler Craton Airborne Survey Release earlier this year. The map and table will be updated quarterly.

Details of how to download surveys from the SARIG Map Layers Catalog can be found in news article ‘Timeslice geophysics’ in this edition of the MESA Journal.
