Beyond Purple Blobs: Getting New Geology Insights from Geophysical Data

on June 15, 2015


There are many situations where geological mapping is challenging due to lack of outcrop, sedimentary/vegetation cover, the deposits are covered or at depth, etc. In these situations geophysics is usually brought in as a tool to map at depth or below the cover. Unfortunately geophysical data is commonly underutilized or the best method is not used.  

The objective of this talk is to show some newer advances in geophysical data processing and integration, aimed at obtaining geological information to narrow the search for mineral deposits.

Presented by: Hernan Ugalde, Senior Consulting Geophysicist and Iris Lenauer, Structural Geology Consultant at PGW. 
Series: Part of the Toronto Geological Discussion Group (TGDG) Mini-Symposium on ‘Working Smart: Using the downturn in the economy as an opportunity.’
