A trial airborne EM (AEM) survey was carried out across a 13 x 9 km area of the northern Nottinghamshire (UK) coalfield. One of the objectives was to examine the influence of collieries situated above the Triassic Sherwood Sandstone aquifer. The conductivity models obtained from the AEM survey revealed extensive zones of enhanced subsurface conductivity in the vicinity of all the collieries in the survey area. The purpose of the present study is to provide information regarding subsequent investigations (ground geophysics and borehole) to confirm the AEM results and to investigate the geochemical nature of the conductive zone identified in the vicinity of one of the collieries.
