World's Largest Airborne EM Survey Highlights Potential

Minister for resources and Northern Australia Matt Canavan said the survey indicated potential for new mineral deposits including gold, copper, nickel, lead, zinc and manganese, as well as critical minerals such as cobalt, platinum-group elements and rare-earth elements.

"The survey containing 60,000 line kilometres of data provides new insights into mineral-rich areas in Northern Australia that have not been extensively explored previously," he said.

The survey focused on the prospective area between Tennant Creek and Mt Isa.
