Title:
Tok electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical survey data compilation
Abstract:
The Tok electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical survey data were acquired with a DIGHEMv Electromagnetic (EM) system and a CGG D1344 cesium magnetometer with a Scintrex CS3 cesium sensor. The EM and magnetic sensors were flown at a height of 30 meters (m). In addition the survey recorded data from radar and laser altimeters, a GPS navigation system, 50/60 Hz monitors and a video camera. Flights were performed with an AS-350-B3 Squirrel helicopter at a mean terrain clearance of 60 m along NE-SW (12 degrees) survey flight lines with a spacing of 400 m. Tie lines were flown perpendicular to the flight lines at intervals of approximately 4,800 m. These data were produced under contract between the State of Alaska, Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS), and CGG Land (U.S.) Inc. Airborne geophysical data for the area were acquired and processed by CGG in 2014 and 2015. The project was funded by the Alaska State Legislature as part of the Alaska Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory Program and the Alaska Strategic and Critical Minerals Assessment Capital Improvement Project.

Why was the data set created?

The Tok electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical survey data compilation is a product of the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys' (DGGS) Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory (AGGMI) program and the Alaska Strategic and Critical Minerals Assessment Capital Improvement Project. The goal of the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys' (DGGS) Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory (AGGMI) program is to enhance the understanding of Alaska's mineral resources and stimulate private-sector mineral development. The program seeks to delineate mineral zones on Alaska State lands that: (1) have major economic value; (2) can be developed in the short term to provide high-quality jobs for Alaskans; and (3) will provide economic diversification to help offset the loss of Prudhoe Bay oil revenue. Candidate lands for this program are identified on the basis of existing geologic knowledge, land ownership, and nominations from Alaska's geologic community. The AGGMI program and resulting new geologic knowledge are recognized worldwide and have encouraged millions of dollars of venture capital expenditures in the local economies of the surveyed mining districts. These venture capital expenditures have led to discovery and delineation of new mineral resources. The multi-year Strategic and Critical Minerals Assessment Capital Improvement Project (SCMA) was established to determine Alaska's geologic potential for rare-earth elements and other minerals that are essential for our modern, technology-based society. This program began in FY2012 with a data survey and compilation of existing information on rare-earth-element occurrences in Alaska, and expanded significantly in FY2013 to include additional critical minerals, re-analyses of existing samples, and obtaining new field and analytical data, including airborne geophysics.

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: 2014 (process 1 of 11)
    Geophysical data - The airborne geophysical data were acquired between July 30, 2014 through November 13, 2014 with DIGHEM (V) Electromagnetic (EM) systems - Scintrex CS3 cesium magnetometer sensors. The EM and magnetic sensors were flown at a height of 30 meters (m), with the magnetic sensor installed in the EM sensor. In addition, the survey recorded data from radar and laser altimeters, GPS navigation system, 50/60 Hz monitors, thermometer, barometric pressure instrument, and video camera. Flights were performed with one Aerospatiale AS-350-B3 helicopters. All were flown at a nominal mean terrain clearance of 60 m. Survey flight lines were flown at a heading of 345 degrees (NW-SE) with one-quarter mile (402.3 m) line spacing). Tie lines were flown at a heading of 75 degrees (NE-SW), perpendicular to the flight lines, and were spaced at intervals of approximately 4,800 m. Novatel OEM4-G2L Global Positioning Systems were used for navigation and flight path recovery. The helicopter positions were derived every 0.5 seconds (2 Hz); the ground GPS base station data were collected at 1.0 second (1 Hz) intervals. The positional xy data are interpolated from 2 Hz to 10 Hz. The use of the differentially-corrected base station data results in a positional accuracy of better than five meters. Flight path positions were projected onto the Clarke 1866 (UTM zone 7N) spheroid, 1927 North American datum using a central meridian (CM) of 147 degrees, a north constant of 0, and an east constant of 500,000.

    Data sources used in this process:

    • Akima, H., 1970

    Date: 2014 (process 2 of 11)
    Total magnetic field data - The total magnetic field data were acquired with a sampling interval of 0.1 seconds. The raw magnetic data (channel 'mag_raw') were (1) corrected for measured system lag (resulting in channel 'mag_lag'), (2) corrected for diurnal variations by subtraction of the digitally recorded base station magnetic data (resulting in channel 'mag_diu'), (3) adjusted for regional variations (by subtracting IGRF model 2010, updated for date of flight and elevation variations), (4) leveled to the tie line data resulting in the final residual magnetic intensity, (5) manually leveled with final small microleveling (resulting in channel 'mag_rmi'), and (6) increased by a constant IGRF average value to restore the mag_rmi values to a total magnetic field channel (resulting in channel 'magigrf'). 'Mag_RMI' and 'MagIGRF' were then interpolated onto a regular 80-m grid using a modified Akima (1970) technique.

    Date: 2014 (process 3 of 11)
    Magnetic and derivative magnetic grids - Three different algorithms were applied to the total magnetic field 80 m grid, resulting in three magnetic derivative grids. The analytic signal grid is the total amplitude of all directions of magnetic gradient calculated from the sum of the squares of the three orthogonal gradients. Mapped highs in the calculated analytic signal of the magnetic parameter locate the anomalous source body edges and corners (e.g., contacts, fault/shear zones, basement fault block boundaries or lithologic contacts, etc.). Analytic signal maxima are located directly over faults and contacts, regardless of structural dip, and independently of the direction of the induced and/or remnant body magnetizations. The calculated magnetic tilt grid is the angle between the horizontal gradient and the total vertical gradient, and is useful for identifying the depth and type of magnetic source. The tilt angle is positive over the source, crosses through zero at, or near, the edge of a vertical sided source, and is negative outside the source zone. It has the added advantage of responding equally well to shallow and deep sources and is able to resolve deeper sources that may be masked by larger responses caused by shallower sources. The first vertical derivative grid was calculated using a fast Fourier transform (FFT)-based frequency-domain filtering algorithm. The vertical gradient algorithm enhances the response of magnetic bodies in the upper 500 m and attenuates the response of deeper bodies. The resulting (calculated) vertical gradient grid provides better definition and resolution of near-surface magnetic units and helps to identify weak magnetic features that may not be evident in the total field data. All magnetic and derivative magnetic grids were then resampled from the 80-m cell size down to a 25-m cell size using a modified Akima (1970) technique to produce the maps and final grids contained in this publication. When resampling the grids to a 25-m cell size, the original grids are scanned to determine the minimum and maximum values which the new grids are then limited to, avoiding extreme extrapolation errors between lines.

    Date: 2014 (process 4 of 11)
    Inphase and quadrature components - The DIGHEM (V) EM systems measured inphase and quadrature components at five frequencies. Two vertical coaxial-coil pairs operated at nominal frequencies of 1000 and 5500 Hz while three horizontal coplanar-coil pairs operated at 900, 7200, and 56,000 Hz. Receiver - transmitter geometry and actual operating frequencies are documented in the metadata and data.

    Data sources used in this process:

    • Fraser, D.C., 1978

    Date: 2014 (process 5 of 11)
    Apparent resistivity - EM data were sampled at 0.1 second intervals. The EM system responds to bedrock conductors, conductive overburden, and cultural sources. The EM inphase and quadrature data were drift-corrected using base level data collected at high altitude (areas of no signal). Along-line filters are applied to the data to remove spheric spikes. The data were inspected for variations in phase, and a phase correction was applied to the data if necessary. The apparent resistivity and depth were then calculated from the inphase and quadrature data for all coplanar frequencies. The calculation used the pseudo-layer (or buried) half-space model defined by Fraser (1978). This model consists of a resistive layer overlying a conductive half-space. The apparent depth is defined as the sensor-source distance minus the measured altitude of the sensor above the ground. The apparent depth channels estimate the depth below surface of a conductive half-space and are the apparent thickness of the overlying resistive layer. The apparent depth (or thickness) parameter will be positive when the upper layer is more resistive than the underlying material, in which case the apparent depth may be quite close to the true depth assuming it is a buried halfspace and altimeter is correct. The apparent depth will be negative when the upper layer is more conductive than the underlying material, and will be zero when a homogeneous half-space exists. The apparent depth parameter must be interpreted cautiously because it will contain any errors that might exist in the measured altitude of the EM bird (e.g., as caused by a dense tree cover). Manual leveling of the inphase and quadrature of each coil pair, based on the resistivity data and comparisons to the data from the other frequencies, was performed. Automated micro-leveling is carried out in areas of low signal. The EM data were interpolated onto a regular 80-m grid using a modified Akima (1970) technique. The resulting grids were subjected to a 3x3 Hanning filter and resampled to a 25-m cell size before contouring and map production. When re-sampling the grids to a 25-m cell size, the original grids are scanned to determine the minimum and maximum values which the new grids are then limited to, avoiding extreme extrapolation errors between lines.

    Date: 2014 (process 6 of 11)
    Digital elevation/terrain model - The digital elevation/terrain model was produced from the differentially corrected GPS-Z data (channel 'GPSZ' in line data) and the laser altimeter data measured in the bird (channel 'ALTLAS_BIRD' included in the same files). Both the GPSZ and ALTLAS_BIRD data were checked for spikes, which were removed manually. The ALTLAS_BIRD data were despiked and then filtered using a 13 median filter, followed by a 13 Hanning filter. The corrected altimeter data were then subtracted from the GPSZ data to produce profiles of the height above mean sea level along the survey lines. The data were manually leveled to remove any errors between lines. After all leveling, the data were DC shifted to match the local maps, in this case, NAD27. The 80-m DTM grid was then resampled to a 25-m cell size to produce the DTM grid contained in this publication.

    Date: 2014 (process 7 of 11)
    Map overlays - Fugro Airborne Surveys downloaded the Alaska PLSS Section Grid shapefile in fall 2008 and subset this in-house version to roughly fit the map sheets for this publication using MapInfo Professional. CGG modified the formatting of the file using AutoCad, changing township and range line widths and colors, and added township and range labels. The modified file was then used as overlays on maps without topography.

    Date: 2015 (process 8 of 11)
    Geographically registered gridded data - All grids with 25 m cell size were converted to Geotiffs and KMZs using CGG's specialized software.

    Date: 2015 (process 9 of 11)
    Print files - The HPGL/2 files were created with HP Designjet T1300ps HPGL driver. The Adobe Acrobat format files were created with Adobe Acrobat Distiller v9.0 from Postscript files.

    Date: 2015 (process 10 of 11)
    Boundary polygon - The boundary polygon was generated by loading the final line data in Geosoft Oasis montaj v8.4. No tie (control) line data were used in this process. The final magnetic data was gridded using the Minimum Curvature option with the following settings: grid cell size = 1/5 of line spacing, blanking distance = double the line spacing, cells to extend beyond data = 0. The polygon file was created using Grid Outline tool with edge resolution = 1. The polygon file was exported to ERSI shapefile.

    Date: 2015 (process 11 of 11)
    Discrete anomalous EM responses (EM anomalies) were computer picked from the electromagnetic data set and classified by type and grade. Line and polygon features of the electromagnetic and magnetic data were identified by contractor staff. EM anomalies are presented on map and profile data and are available in ASCII file format. These features are named and stored in geographically registered formats. More information about these products is found in the project report.

    Missing magnetic values occur in the databases for the Tok survey area because of the lagging process at the beginning of some lines, and due to despiking.  Slow airspeed over steep terrain can cause rapid bird swing and magnetic data spikes that require removal from final data. Missing values in the calculated 'depth' dep56k, dep7200, and dep900 occur where altimeter limits for resistivity calculation are exceeded or where magnetite causes inphase to be negative. Missing apparent resistivity values are generally caused by altitude exceeding the tolerance for meaningful resistivity calculation.
    
    The GPS gaps are as follows:   1km of interpolated locations occur on a line Flt 36086 L10790 and Flt 36084 L10811
    

  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?

    Data originate from one company using the same contract specifications for all data. The originating coordinate system was retained for all publication products except the KMZ files, which utilize WGS84 geographic coordinates. In some cases we provide values in both UTM NAD27 and geographic WGS84 projections
