This GeoFile updates and replaces GeoFile 2009-7. It comprises in situ measurements of magnetic susceptibility that were made on a routine basis at most stations during the 2008 (the Whipsaw Creek-Eastgate-Wolfe Creek area) and 2009 (Granite Creek area) field seasons. The project 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) and Massey and Oliver (2010a, 2010b).
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.
