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 spatial layers

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. Surveys are added progressively. There are no geophysical data releases this quarter as the software used to cookie-cut geophysical data is undergoing an upgrade. Regular releases are anticipated to recommence in the second half of 2022.

Details of how to download surveys from the SARIG Map Layers Catalog can be found in news article ‘Timeslice geophysics’ in the July 2020 edition of the MESA Journal.
