New data released from Camooweal survey

New data released from Camooweal survey

New seismic survey data from the Camooweal region of the South Nicholson Basin is now available from the Geological Survey of Queensland.

GSQ says survey provides us new insight and much greater clarity over the Queensland portions of this important frontier basin.

The main purpose of the Camooweal 2D seismic survey conducted in 2019 survey was to image portions of the Isa Superbasin, South Nicholson and Georgina basins to give insight into the regional crustal architecture.

It examines the potential of gas-bearing formations known to occur in the Lawn Hill area to continue south into an area lacking seismic data coverage.

It also imaged a previously unknown sub-basin to the south-east of Camooweal. The information is available to explorers HERE.

Meanwhile the Department of Natural Resources and Mines reports  unprecedented interest for GSQ’s latest round of CEI grants under the New Economy Minerals Initiative (NEMI). 

Submissions from 61 parties were now being assessed and successful applicants would be notified shortly, it said.

Funding of up to $200,000 per project is available, with a focus on exploration for new economy minerals including cobalt, gallium, germanium, graphite, indium, lithium, manganese, molybdenum, niobium, platinum group elements, rare earth elements, rhenium, scandium, silver, tantalum, tungsten, tin, titanium, and vanadium.
