Geochemical methods of ore and precious metal deposit prospecting and exploration

Geochemical methods, in comparison with traditional geological and geophysical studies, enable not only to forecast metallogenetic features of the sedimentary section on the structural-tectonic basis but also to rank the forecast sites on reserves and conduct a qualitative assessment of ores and buried precious metal placers.

The company uses highly effective geochemical methods of prospecting for ore and placer deposits of non-ferrous and precious metals. These methods are based on the patterns of migration of elements and their concentration on natural specific sorbents, which make it possible to ensure high reliability and depth of research. Along with this, the methods used are express, economical, do not require special equipment, and are of low-cost.

They include:

The bacterial and geochemical method – characterized by ultrahigh resolution (depth of research), which allows predicting hidden and covered (under allocations) ore objects, as well as placers at any depth. It is also used for revealing and delineating kimberlite pipes in enclosed landscapes.

The mercury-salt lithological and geochemical method for salt-superimposed halos of highly mobile, including closed type ore elements.

 The lithological and geochemical method – based on prospecting for dispersion trains, having a high informative capacity and reliability of the forecast.

The quartz-geochemical method – based on the features of the location in the hypergenic zone of detrital fractions of hydrothermal vein quartz, as the main mineral-forming component of gold ore formations.

The hydrological and geochemical method – carried out in two options – along the river and slope waters.

The phytogeochemical method – used in prospecting for deposits of noble metals, using plants, which are the most widespread in natural landscapes, as objects of sampling.

The results of geochemical works allow, with a small number of appropriations, to reduce the level of risk in identifying the location of ore-bearing and alluvial objects, as well as the volume of drilling and mining operations.
