Mining Geophysics

Mining geophysicists also use the seismic method, borrowed from the petroleum geophysicist, for coal and potash exploration. The seismic method has value in detecting breaks in these deposits to help determine the extent of the mineral. It can even 'see' the mine workings. Mining and petroleum geophysicists are also working together in the

GEOPHYSICAL TECHNIQUES AND THEIR APPLICATIONS IN MINING

Historically, geophysical technique (magnetic) was first used in Sweden in the 17th century for prospecting iron ore (Reedman, 1979). Geophysical techniques gained more acceptability in the early 1923 (Gupter, 1986) because of exploration for crude oil. Relevance of Geophysics across the world is as a result of oil and solid mineral exploration.
