Mineral exploration application

For mining exploration applications, the method and equipment to use depend on how the precious metal is concentrated or disseminated in rocks, on the size of the orebody but also on its depth When precious metal is concentrated in a dyke, the detection may be performed by resistivity profiling using the Promis 10 Slingram type EM profiler or the T-VLF to image resistivity or the Syscal range ....

Mineral Exploration

The very low frequency electromagnetic (VLF-EM) method is used widely in mineral exploration and engineering geophysical exploration to detect subsurface conductors It uses plane wave fields generated by communication transmitters in the frequency range 15-25 kHz...

Very Low

Very Low-Frequency (VLF) Method , The depth of exploration is limited to about 60% to 70% of the skin depth of the surrounding rock or soil Therefore, the high frequency of the VLF transmitters means that in more conductive environments, the exploration depth is quite shallow; for example, the depth of exploration might be 10 to 12 m in 25 ....
