Quaternary geoarchaeology in the Olympic Dam desert area - a program overview

Majorie Sullivan, Philip Hughes

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The stony and sandridge desert near Olympic Dam in South Australia is generating interesting archaeological and palaeoenvironmental results and offers opportunity for additional research in several fields. BHP Billiton has supported a researchbased salvage program to mitigate the impacts of a proposed mine expansion. The program covers archaeological investigations within a landscape context and has revealed interesting Quaternary geoarchaeological information. This note outlines the scope and general findings of the program and suggests there is a range of possible Quaternary research that could follow from the information gained in the salvage phase.
