David will give an update of the happenings of the Geological Survey of NSW and will include the NSW Government’s New Frontiers initiative. He will also outline geophysical and geological activities that will include new interpretations, imminent surveys, planned releases and publications, and staff changes. One of the new products soon to be released will be a series of interpretation maps and accompanying notes covering specific 1:250 000 map sheets in the frontier regions of NSW. In regards to survey acquisition, two major helicopter assisted gravity surveys are about to get underway, together with stratigraphic drilling over the Thomson Orogen in the Tilpa region west of Bourke, seismic acquisition in the Rankins Springs / Griffith region and Gunnedah Basin, and several airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys in the Gunnedah Basin.
