Feasibility of Using Regional Seismic Reflections Surveys to Discover Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) Deposits in the Gawler Craton, South Australia
MetadataShow full item record
"The seismic reflection method should find IOCG mineral deposits because of the relatively high density and hardness of these deposits compared to the host rocks. By simulating surveys with acoustic modelling and comparing the simulations to real data the thesis shows this to be true. The simulations and further inspection of existing data over known deposits indicate that most IOCG deposits can be detected by looking for the seismic signature of intrusions along prospective structures.

Tracing industrial sulfur contributions to atmospheric sulfate deposition in the Athabasca oil sands region, Alberta, CanadaProemse, Bernadette; Mayer, B.; Fenn, M. (2012)Anthropogenic S emissions in the Athabasca oil sands region (AOSR) in Alberta, Canada, affect SO4 deposition in close vicinity of industrial emitters. Between May 2008 and May 2009, SO4-S deposition was monitored using ...
