Mica Creek electronic distance measurement (EDM) baseline
Contact the Regional Calibration Officer (listed below under 'contacts') as soon as possible if any of the following information is incorrect or to report any problems with the baseline.
This baseline was installed by local surveyors and is located within leased land to the west of the Mica Creek power station off the Diamantina Developmental Rd, 5km south of the town centre. Station 1 is at the northern end of the baseline nearing the power station boundary fence.
The gate key for this baseline can be obtained from Lodewyk Surveys in Mt Isa. Access to pillars 3–7 is via a locked gate 300m off the end of the power station access road.
Type: 7 station Schwendener. Stations are concrete pillars.
Datum RL: The datum plane is based on reduced level (RL) 363.0 metres. RLs for the stations are derived from station 1 – permanent survey mark (PSM) 207066.
Alignment: Base alignment is from station 1 to 7. Offsets are negative to the left and positive to the right of the line viewed from station 1.
- New stainless steel plates were attached to pillars in August 2017 to improve centring.
