Cloncurry Inversion modelling report released!

A new report showcasing recent 3D inversion modelling of the complete Cloncurry magnetotelluric dataset has just been released. This work, spearheaded by GSQ geophysicist Janelle Simpson, contains a suite of inversion models and detailed writeup of the thoughts behind the models and the modelling results achieved. There is also a model package containing several different formats to help people interrogate the model suite for themselves.

Depth to Basement estimates from probabilistic 1D trans-dimensional Bayesian inversion of Cloncurry Magnetotelluric Survey

The Mount Isa province in Northwest Queensland is a strongly mineralised Proterozoic inlier surrounded by Phanerozoic sedimentary basins which postdate the major basement mineral systems. So by understanding the distribution and thickness of the unmineralised sediments we can reduce uncertainty involved in exploration through cover.

Vanadium in focus: an emerging battery mineral

October 24, 2022

Apart from traditional use in steel alloys, vanadium has an important growing application in grid-scale batteries. Queensland has one of the world’s largest known resources for vanadium. Several companies are currently looking into mining of this metal in North West Mineral Province, aiming for a battery-grade vanadium pentoxide (V2O5), with the first production expected as early as in 2024.

GSQ Open Data Portal Content Upgrade

First Steps

The GSQ Open Data Portal (ODP) has received an upgrade! The biggest feature of which, is that you are now reading this article. The ODP team have implemented, alongside some stability, basic function and background fixes, a system for the publication of news, articles and announcements. This new system creates new opportunities for the ODP team as well as the GSQ to share a direct line of communication with you, the users of the portal. The GSQ plans to use the space to keep users up to date with events and projects that the GSQ are involved in.
