The DGGS intends to gather geophysical data from a primary area extending roughly 125 miles east of Fairbanks and a secondary area north of the Fortymile Mining District. The Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys June 7 announced that it is seeking partners to share the costs and results of airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical surveys planned to be flown this summer over the Yukon-Tanana uplands of eastern Alaska. The survey intends to gather data from a 5,236 square-mile primary area extending roughly 125 miles east of Fairbanks; and, if funding allows, a 2,751 square mile secondary area north of the Fortymile Mining District.

Mr Steve Masterman, DGGS Director, said the division has some latitude to modify the survey to meet the needs of a partner and contributor to the program. Current plans are for a regional fixed-wing magnetic survey with 300 or 400 meter line spacing and terrain drape. Weather permitting, DGGS also anticipates collecting radiometric data at the same time as the magnetic data. Surveys will be optimized for magnetic data acquisition with localized radiometric data acquisition.

As with previous private-public partnerships in geophysical data collection, DGGS requires all acquired airborne data to be integrated into the DGGS survey and to be concurrently made available publicly. DGGS wants to maximize the utility of this survey and be responsive to user needs and will keep confidential any discussions regarding additional data collections and areas of interest.
