Dataset: GLO AEM Model Baseline Mine Footprints v01



The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from one or more source datasets. The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

The dataset is a shapefile derived based on the current mine boundaries digitised from various reports. It represents the current extent of mines for the Statford Mine and the Duralie Mine within the Gloucester subregion. Mining company reports contain maps of the current extent for these mines and these were digistised to represent the current mine footprint. These areas were used in modelling of surface water and groundwater to assess likely the impacts of mining on water resources in the Gloucester subregion under the basecase scenario.


Used to represent the existing mining footprints for mines operating in the Gloucester Basin.

Dataset History

Current mine boundaries were digitised from various reports by georectifying images scanned from the reports. These images were used as background images to digitise the boundaries within ArcGIS. Shapefiles were selected from the input dataset representing the mine footprints for the Duralie and Startford mines and saved to create this dataset within ArcGIS.
