Abstract: Although the magnetotelluric (MT) technique was first used in Australia in the 1960s, it has only been widely adopted by academia, government, and industry over the last two decades, bolstered by the realisation of its important role in mineral and energy exploration undercover.
To date, there are many MT surveys and associated innovations across Australia. The national MT programme - Australian Lithospheric Architecture Magnetotelluric Project (AusLAMP), which is half way to covering the continent, has revealed major insights into the tectonic evolution and mineral systems of Australia, and inspired subsequent ‘infill-surveys’ for further investigations.
This talk provides a showcase of these MT studies in Australia, including applications in mineral systems, tectonic evolution and other representative case studies with a focus on southern Australia.
