Geophysics in the Search for Diamonds in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores new ways of using airborne and ground geophysical methods for diamond exploration in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Four test areas were used to compare geophysical results with known kimberlite and diamond occurences. The thesis includes a review of diamond exploration models and geophysical methods used worldwide over the last 50 years. It shows how geophysics can provide exploration guidelines and strategies for improved exploration.
