Dataset: Geochemistry Database


The database stores major elements, rare earth elements and mineral analyses. The fields are partly modelled on those of the PETCHEM dataset of AGSO, produced by Wyborn and Ryburn (BMR Record 1989/19). Items include: positional accuracy, location method, name of the geographic area, stratigraphic subdivision, lithology, lithological description, chronostratigraphy, outcrop scale description of the locality, geologist or organisation who collected or submitted the sample for analysis, a reference for the sample, medium of the sample, the sample preparation, the MRT analysis ID number, name of the mineral. Incorporates physical properties database and stream sediment database.
