In situ measurements of magnetic susceptibility were made on a routine basis at most stations during the 2008 field season in the Whipsaw Creek-Eastgate-Wolfe Creek area. The area is located on the eastern boundary of Manning Park, about 15 km southwest of the town of Princeton. The geology of the area is described in Massey et al (2009a, 2009b).
The measurements were made using a Exploranium KT-9 kappameter. Ten individual readings were taken scattered over the outcrop at each station and the average recorded. Data for each station is tabulated in the MS Excel file and summarized by stratigraphic unit in Table 1 and Figure 1 on the accompanying poster.
