The authors have systematically studied geological and geochemical anomalies obtained by exploration of different scales of the Zimudang gold deposit and have established geochemical exploration models of three different scales for the Zimudang finely disseminated gold deposit, i.e. regional (1:200000), ore field (1:50000) and deposit (1:10000).
In this paper, the history of using geochemical exploration to solve environmental problems is presented, the advantages and disadvantages of the geochemical exploration and conventional methods of environmental monitoring are compared, and the application of geochemical exploration in the fields of natural pollution, man-made pollution, agriculture and human health is discussed.
Research results indicate that by soil radon survey,anomalies may be distinguished in a basin,and soil radon survey could be an important geochemical prospecting method for rapid evaluation of sandstone-type uranium deposit in basin areas.
In the paper, the hypergene geochemical anomalies of elements distributed in the soil, stream sediment and eolian sand are studied to find out the interference of eolian sand with geochemical anomalies and to develop new geochemical prospecting methods that is suitable in the cold and arid deserta areas.
Through the research work of rock geochemical survey and the characteristics of anomalies, associated with the comprehensive study of regional geological and structural characteristics, the authors of this article suggest that Au、 Ag、 Cu、 Bi、 As are the most important indicative elements for the regional geochemical exploration of gold (copper) mineralization;
Application of the geochemical prospecting to improve oilfield structure models
Use of lichens in detecting environmental risk and in geochemical prospecting
The results have also revealed the versatility ofXanthoria calcicola in geochemical prospecting for heavy metals such as Pb, Zn, As, Au, Sb, Ni, V, and Cu.
In this study, the methodology of geochemical prospecting has been applied to the study of cadmium, lead, copper and zinc dispersion in the fine sediments of the upper course of the Huerva River (Iberian Range, NE Spain).
The distribution of Zn, Pb, Cu, Cr, Ni and Co in the plant species and soil of the Zn-Pb sulfide deposits of the Besham area in Pakistan has been studied for geochemical prospecting and environmental pollution.
Exploration geochemistry-Distribution of elements and recognition of anomalies
New developments in computer-data presentation and interpretation, including population sorting and classification, illustrate the increasing use of the computer in exploration geochemistry.
Exploration geochemistry is viewed in a resource appraisal framework and the various general methods are discussed in terms of their applicability at different stages of the appraisal exercise.
An iterative regression analysis procedure for numerical interpretation of regional exploration geochemistry data
The detection limits obtained using the analytical methodology described in this paper are acceptable for exploration geochemistry and the technique has been used to analyze samples collected as part of a metallic minerals survey of Jamaica.
