Quality The data within this data set are derived from Geoscience Australia's corporate ORACLE ROCKCHEM database. Most sample have been collected from Geoscience Australia's geological mapping, however there are also samples from other organisations, particularly universities. The sample information includes analysis results, the location of the sample and a brief geological description which may include the name of the unit sampled. Most sites are accurate to within 100m, a few have accuracies greater than 100m. Geological descriptions of the samples are derived from the geologists field notes.
Access Constraints The dataset is stored in an excel spreadsheet in digital form. The dataset is available on an ftp server in zipped form and is presented in an excel spreadsheet.
