Systematic Measurement of Gamma Ray Emissions helps Trace Prospective Alteration Zones.
The Big Bell lode gold deposit is located in the Yilgarn Craton of Western Australia. The mineralization is associated with a large potassic alteration zone.
A radiometric borehole survey successfully detected the potassic alteration zone with up to 8 tw% potassium.
The mine leases extend for 15 km to the northeast and 5 km to the southwest of the mine site. Airborne and ground radiometric surveys were conducted in conjunction with IP and magnetic surveys.
These surveys proved very useful for target generation on this property.
