Brief description

3D geological and geophysical modelling was used in conjunction with mineral potential modelling
to assess unrealised Cu-Au potential in the Quamby area in the Eastern Succession of the Mount Isa
Inlier. This report documents the process used by the Geological Survey of Queensland, including 3D
modelling and geophysical inversion, to create a Common Earth Model (CEM) for 3D mineral potential
modelling over the Quamby Project area. The area is divided into three main geological domains
— the
Mary Kathleen, Constantine and Soldiers Cap Domains (adapted from the North-W
est Queensland
Mineral and Energy Province Report (NWQMEPR), Geological Survey of Queensland, 2011b).
The Quamby Project area contains the major operating Ernest Henry Cu-Au mine as well as other
significant Cu-Au projects and is highly prospective for a range of mineralisation styles including
Cu±Au±Fe deposits and stratabound sediment-hosted Cu deposits. Mesozoic and Cenozoic sediments
cover more than 70% of the project area. Although interpreted cover depths are generally less than
150m, much of the area remains under-explored.
A 3D geological model was created using GOCAD and SKUA software incorporating new
interpretations from recent mapping by the Geological Survey of Queensland (Geological Survey of
Queensland, 2011b) as well as drillhole and seismic data. This 3D model was used as a starting model
to constrain potential field inversions yielding 3D physical property models (density and magnetic
susceptibility).
