Effective mineral exploration programs maximize the benefit of appropriate technologies in order to increase cost effectiveness by optimizing the use of drilling, reducing risks, and increasing the speed of discovery. In other words, correct use of available tools can allow exploration programs to find more ore, faster, with less expense.

It is well documented that geophysical data can be extremely useful in mineral exploration programs. This has become more evident in recent years due to the increased ability to invert geophysical data to produce 3-D subsurface models of physical properties. These models, along with physical property values of local rock...
