Delineating the Alteration Zone of a Gold Prospect
Student: Adam Wall Co-investigators: Colin Farquharson, Greg Sparkes
Hydrothermal gold deposits are associated with alteration of local rocks, changing their density and magnetic properties. Gravity and magnetic surveys were carried out over the Big Easy gold prospect, and the data were mapped and modelled in order to localize the alteration zone, and hence the gold mineralization.
