Abstract: DIP023 is part of the 'Warramunga Province mineral deposit series' (DIP023-028) focusing on the Rover field. The publications and digital data comprise regional and individual deposit 3D compilations and accompanying atlases.
The Rover field is located entirely under cover of the Wiso Basin to south and west of the Tennant mineral field and outcropping Warramunga Province. The Rover field is recognised as having potential for traditional Tennant Creek-style ironstone hosted Cu-Au-Bi mineralisation as well as Pb-Zn-Ag mineralisation that is not currently recognised in the Tennant mineral field. In contrast to the Tennant mineral field, the nature of the host stratigraphy and timing of alteration and mineralisation in the Rover field is poorly understood.
WH Bryan Mining and Geology Research Centre, Sustainable Minerals Institute, University of Queensland compiled all open-file geoscience data in the Rover field area of interest and produced; regional scale 3D compilation and interpreted the geoscientific data to produce a 1:25 000 scale interpreted geology GIS of the area. Deposits of focus are Rover 1 deposit (DIP024), Explorer 108 and Curiosity deposits (DIP025), the Explorer 142 deposit (DIP026), the White Devil deposit DIP027, and the Warrego deposit (DIP028).
