Abstract: The Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS) is undertaking a compilation of shale data used to assess the petroleum and mineral resource potential of key onshore basins in the Northern Territory.
Key datasets include:
total organic carbon (TOC) and programmed pyrolysis
shale rock properties
X-ray diffraction (XRD)
elemental kerogen analysis
organic petrology and reflectance
rock mechanics
hydrocarbon geochemistry
kerogen kinetics
sorption isotherms
gas geochemistry
whole rock geochemistry (XRF/ICP-MS)
This digital information package is a compilation of shale data from the greater McArthur Basin (McArthur and Birrindudu basins) and correlative Mesoproterozoic- to Paleoproterozoic-aged units in the South Nicholson Basin and Lawn Hill Platform. The data is sourced from open file company reports, core sampling records, government publications, and new analyses from drill core held at NTGS Core Facilities and the Geoscience Australia Repository. Digital Information Package 014 (DIP 014) contains data for 22 935 samples acquired up until March 2022
