Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
We present a compilation of surficial sediment geochemistry data for a large area of southeastern NT. The surficial sediment contains a mass influx of silica sand from the Thelon Basin. A novel approach to account for this silica dilution is presented that will be of use for mineal exploration.
