Mineral Exploration Alteration Mapping

Exploration efforts in targeting for various deposit types is augmented through the use of satellite imagery and the identification of key alteration minerals.

Property Scale Exploration Targeting - Worldview-3 imagery offers greater SWIR spatial resolution(7.5m) as compared to equivalent ASTER SWIR bands(30m).

Depending on mineral presence, Hydrous silica, Hydroxyl alteration intensity, Carbonate minerals and propylitic alteration can be identified.

Worldview-3 also offers high resolution NIR imagery(50cm). Minimum coverage of 25km2 is required. Send us your AOI and we will send a quote.

Deliverables: Raster single mineral Intensity and mineral mixture composite, SHP alteration vector files, panchromatic and RBG base imagery.

Regional Scale Exploration Targeting - ASTER imagery offers good regional support covering the VNIR, SWIR and TIR bands with 15,30 and 90m pixel resolution respectively. Single Images cover 60x60km2. Mineral groups can be identified with ASTER(argillic, white micas, propylitic, adanced argillic, silica)

Deliverables: Raster single mineral Intensity and mineral mixture composite, SHP alteration vector files. Send us your AOI and we will send a quote.
