interpretation of exploration geochemical data collected from the weathered environment. element composition of vein material from epithermalgold deposits. Rose and H. Gundlach (Editors), Geochemical Exploration 1980. The Jamboree 7-17 claims were staked in October, 1981 after additional soil and silt sampling was carried out in the region. ... (ppb) levels, for a multi-element geochemical suite including gold and the platinum group elements (PGE). The potential applications of As, Sb and Bi as pathfinder elements in geochemical exploration have been researched using a new, rapid technique for the simultaneous determination of the three elements. 4.0 EXPLORATION HISTORY The Jamboree claims 1-6 were staked in June, 1981 in response to the release of geochemical data by the British Columbia Government indicating the area was anomalous in arsenic. Geochemical exploration is mainly governed by mobililty of elements and the geochemical cycle and geochemical environments help understand the mobility of elements. This method offers … J. Geochem. Identification of pathfinder elements for Au was executed in Dagbala-Atte District of Igarra Schist Belt, southwestern Nigeria. This paper aims, through the use of multiple exploration case studies, to demonstrate how: (1) chalcophile and pathfinder element mobility in the near-surface weathered environment impacts interpretation, and how ignoring this in exploration geochemical exploration programs, orientation surveys or case studies that compare typical ... and pathfinder elements. Application of geostatistical analyst methods in discovering concealed gold and pathfinder elements as geochemical anomalies related to ore mineralisation Philemon Lindagato 1 , Yongjun Li yongjunl@chd.edu.cn 1 , 2 , Gaoxue Yang 1 , 2 , Fenghao Duan 1 and Zuopeng Wang 1 Note that Zn is the best pathfinder element for Au. REFERENCE Geochemistry in mineral exploration … and geochemical methods of Au exploration have advanced enormously in the last decade. It involved sampling residual soil from 49 sites in a grid pattern; analyzing the soil samples for eight elements including Ag, As, Au, Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb and Sb; and subjecting the geochemical data generated to … Pathfinder Exploration Pty Ltd. Pathfinder Exploration Pty Ltd commenced in 1986 with the aim to provide consulting geochemical and petrographic/ mineragraphic services to the mining industry. In: A.W. CONCLUSION The movement of earth material from one environment to another can be explained by this geochemical cycle. Commonly, only the vein mineralogy is reported for these deposits,and is used to inferthe corresponding geochemical response (it can be safely assumed that where tellurides,for example,are generallypresent in veins, Te is a geochemical … 19. Identifying pathfinder elements for gold in bulk-rock geochemical data from the Cripple Creek Au-Te deposit: A statistical approach An integrated organic-inorganic geochemical characterization of Paleogene sediments in No.1 Structural Belt of the Nanpu Sag, Bohai Bay Basin, eastern China: Implication for the origin of organic … Explor., 15: 307--323. Indicator elements have been used for centuries as a guide in geochemical prospecting for various types of mineral deposits. A target element is the commodity being sought and a pathfinder element is one that accompanies this element, but may be more widely dispersed or easier to In this research, multivariate statistical methods were used for the evaluation of multi-element soil geochemical lishment of pathfinder elements can aid in the identifica- tion of element-host mineral associations which may pro- vide a consistent sampling medium, reduce geochemical noise and fine-tune exploration techniques for success. Witness, for instance, the fact that the ancient prospectors associated quartz (silicon) with gold and …
