GEOCHEMISTRY RESULTS FROM MINEX CRC NDI CARRARA 1 NOW AVAILABLE

Geochem results from the MinExCRC NT National Drilling Initiative (NDI) Campaign in collaboration with Industry Northern Territory and Geoscience Australia are now available.

NDI Carrara 1 is a deep stratigraphic drill hole completed in 2020 as part of the MinEx CRC National Drilling Initiative (NDI) in collaboration with Geoscience Australia and the Northern Territory Geological Survey. It is the first test of the Carrara Sub-Basin, a depocentre newly discovered in the South Nicholson region based on interpretation from seismic surveys (L210 in 2017 and L212 in 2019) recently acquired as part of the Exploring for the Future program. The drill hole intersected approximately 1100 m of Proterozoic sedimentary rocks uncomformably overlain by 630 m of Cambrian Georgina Basin carbonates.

A comprehensive geochemical program designed to provide information about the region’s resource potential was carried out on samples collected at up to 4 meter intervals. This report presents data from Rock-Eval pyrolysis analyses undertaken by Geoscience Australia on selected rock samples to establish their total organic carbon content, hydrocarbon-generating potential and thermal maturity.

This is a partial release of Rock-Eval pyrolysis data from 42 down to 1600.5 metres and that analysis is ongoing

Data can be accessed via the Geoscience Australia #EFTF platform here.
