Mineral Resources Tasmania

Notice of Airborne Geophysical Survey

Contractors MagSpec Pty Ltd, working on behalf of Geoscience Australia and Mineral Resources Tasmania, intend to conduct an airborne magnetic and radiometric survey over the area indicated in the plan.

Survey operations in eastern Tasmania will take place only in daylight hours, commencing in late March 2022 and continuing through April. The survey will utilise a helicopter flying predominantly east-west lines spaced 200 metres apart, at a height of no less than 80 metres above the ground.

The data acquired will be publicly available, and used to improve geological understanding of the area, with applications to groundwater and other resources, soil mapping and land stability. Previous similar surveys have covered the entirety of northern and western Tasmania.

For more information, please see the attached Activity Notice or telephone 6165 4800.
