Description / Abstract: Monitoring bores were installed at three sites on NT Portion 6074 adjacent to the main discharge zone of the Oolloo aquifer along the Daly River. The aquifer in that area is overlain by up to 54 m of Cretaceous clays and sands with a red shaly clay at or near the base that acts as a confining layer. The main springs in the river occur at the limit of the confining layer. A combination of topography and gentle geological structure cause the Oolloo Dolostone to be close to the surface in the spring zone. The spring waters are sourced from the Oolloo aquifer but many issue through a thin covering of sandy Cretaceous sediments.
