Case study: Carpentaria Conductivity Anomaly MT survey

Resources North West Queensland

The Geological Survey of Queensland is undertaking two broad-scale magneto-telluric (MT) surveys to the south and east of Cloncurry to map out the Carpentaria Conductivity Anomaly, a geological feature that may be prospective for copper, cobalt and rare earth elements.

These critical minerals are expected to be a fundamental resource needed as the global economy transitions, particularly for the future of electrification and energy storage.
