Selected sections from Carrara-1 will be laid out for viewing only at the NTGS Core Facility, 38 Farrell Crescent, Darwin on Tuesday August 31 from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm. Sampling will not be available during the viewing only period.
Dr Amber Jarrett from NTGS will be available during the viewing to answer questions related to Carrara-1. Amber was instrumental in designing and implementing the systematic sampling program for Carrara-1 through which Geoscience Australia will undertake a consistent and comprehensive suite of analyses.
Chris Carson from Geoscience Australia also plans to be present for the viewing dependant on COVID impacted travel permissions. Chris is the lead at Geoscience Australia regarding the analysis and interpretation of the geology intersected by Carrara-1.
