Burns, L.E., Geoterrex-Dighem, Stevens Exploration Management Corp., Emond, A.M., and Graham, G.R.C., 2015, Fortymile mining district electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical survey, data compilation: Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys,


The Fortymile electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical survey data were acquired with a DIGHEM-V Electromagnetic (EM) system and a cesium magnetometer. 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-B2 Squirrel helicopter at a mean terrain clearance of 60 m along N-S 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

The 1998 Fortymile airborne electromagnetic and magnetic geophysical survey and this compilation are part of the Alaska Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory project funded by the Alaska State Legislature and managed by State of Alaska, Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS). The project seeks to catalyze private-sector mineral development investment. Alaska State lands that: 1) have major economic value; 2) can be developed in the short term to provide high quality jobs for Alaska; and 3) will provide economic diversification to help offset the loss of Prudhoe Bay oil revenue. This purpose for this publication is to compile and upgrade key digital data into a single publication for online data distribution.
