A comparison between conventional and Titan24 induced polarization surveys for gold exploration in Nevada


Electrical geophysical survey methods have been applied successfully in worldwide
mineral exploration programs for many years. The interpretation of data generated
from these surveys improved during the 1990s due to the development of 2-D
and 3-D inversion algorithms that provided relevant quantitative results. Recent
advances in computer technology, in particular the practical application of time-series
data processing and noise cancellation techniques in electrical geophysical data acquisition,
have spawned the development of distributed acquisition technology that have
resulted in improved spatial resolution and depth of investigation. This paper will
compare the traditional electrical geophysical approach with distributed acquisition
technology at the Brooks mineral prospect in Humboldt County, Nevada. The results
show that for a comparable cost, improved data quality and depth of investigation
can be achieved with distributed acquisition systems
