HeliTEM Survey


A 1,066.2 line km helicopter borne magnetic and electromagnetic, (HeliTEM), survey has been completed over parts of EL6592, EL9307 and all of EL8384 by Xcalibur Multiphysics. These surveys have been highly effective in directly detecting copper orebodies in the region such as at the Tritton Mine and the Constellation Deposit (Aeris Resources Ltd).

Primary aims of the survey are to: 

  • Explore the area under cover between the Tottenham Deposits and the CZ Deposit;
  • Explore the area in the core of the Orange Plains Anticline, about the Lacy’s Tank copper occurrence;
  • Test line data over previously identified anomalies in the Orange Plains – Effies Ace area and;
  • Provide further data on untested anomalies in the Ace Mine and Underlay Mine areas.

Examination of the raw data shows that anomalies are present but these need to be filtered for the effects of man-made features and conductive overburden such as saline groundwater. Data compilation and processing are expected to be completed in August.
