Future technology makes now the perfect time to effectively target deeper gold in Nevada
The best tool to use for exploring new, buried target areas. 3D inversion models of gravity (density) can shed light on depths to favorable stratigraphy.
Helps evaluate subsurface lithologies/stratigraphy and can be used for detailed modeling/targeting.
Increasingly being used in search for Carlin deposits.
Routinely collected to identify suspected mineralizing intrusions and also assess volcanic cover rocks.
Near-surface outcropping deposits have all been found, leaving the next generation of explorers in search of deeper finds.
Gravity data indicates approximately 60% of the known gold trends lie under cover at shallow, permissive depths. In short, there is considerable room to find the next generation of discoveries in Nevada.
Extensional tectonics and associated faulting is much better understood now than a couple decades ago. Newer technology makes now the perfect time to effectively target deeper gold in Nevada.
