Selected sections from Carrara-1 will be laid out for viewing only at the NTGS Core Facility. Sampling will not be available during the viewing only period.

Dr Amber Jarrett from NTGS will be available during the viewing to answer questions related to Carrara-1. Amber was instrumental in designing and implementing the systematic sampling program for Carrara-1, through which Geoscience Australia will undertake a consistent and comprehensive suite of analyses.

Chris Carson from Geoscience Australia also plans to be present for the viewing, dependent on COVID impacted travel permissions. Chris is the lead at Geoscience Australia regarding the analysis and interpretation of the geology intersected by Carrara-1.

If you would like to view the selected sections of Carrara-1 drillcore on Tuesday, 31 August, please contact Darryl Stacey (08) 8984 3036 to book a time. Bookings close on Monday 30 August.

It is anticipated Carrara-1 will be open filed with the selected samples of Carrara-1 remaining on display for viewing and sampling on Wednesday, 1 September.

All other sections of the Carrara-1 drillcore will be available for sampling after Thursday, 2 September, by request taking into account core facilities availability and NTGS core sampling protocols.
