Funding was provided by the Alaska State Legislature as part of the DGGS Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory (AGGMI) program, the Alaska Strategic and Critical Minerals Assessment Capital Improvement Project (SCMA), and by a contribution from Cook Inlet Region, Inc.
This airborne geophysical survey is part of a program to acquire data on Alaska's most promising mineral belts and districts. The information acquired is aimed at catalyzing new private sector exploration, discovery, and ultimate development and production. The primary goal of the Farewell project is to delineate prospective mineral zones and to support detailed geologic mapping. Many prospects are in the survey area and are thought to represent several different deposit types, including polymetallic veins, epithermal veins, and porphyry copper deposits.

Geophysical data were acquired according to contractor, contract, and request-for-proposals specifications. For additional detail about survey parameters, see the accompanying project report available in the documents directory of this data distribution package.
These data are positioned with post-processed differential GPS. Discussion of grid resolution and factors that may impact the overall horizontal accuracy of the gridded data is available in the documents directory of this data distribution package.
This data set includes files that contain processed aeromagnetic measurements, electromagnetic measurements, altimetry measurements, and locational data for the entire survey area.
Data originate from one company using the same contract specifications for all data. The originating coordinate system was retained for all publication products.
