Summary

A high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey of the southeast Mojave Desert, parts of California and Nevada was flown by EDCON-PRJ, Inc. from December 13, 2019 to March 21, 2020. The high-resolution fixed-wing survey was flown at a flightline spacing of 200 m, an azimuth of 70 degrees, a nominal elevation above ground of 100 m, and consists of about 17,277 line-kilometers. Tie lines were flown at a flightline spacing of 2 km with an azimuth of 160 degrees. Magnetic data were processed by EDCON-PRJ, Inc. and include corrections for diurnal variations of the Earth's magnetic field, magnetic field of the aircraft, tie-line leveled, micro-leveled, and an International Geomagnetic Reference of the Earth for the time of the [...]
