Abstract

Spectral data from an airborne high-resolution spectroradiometer, used successfully to delineate mineralized zones under coniferous forest, have been used in a deciduous region in the Piedmont physiographic province in Randolph County, N Carolina. Pilot Mountain, a hydrothermally altered monadnock within the Carolina slate belt, contains areas of anomalously high amounts of Cu, Mo, and Sn in the soils. Leaves of canopy trees in the mineralized zone also contain more copper than trees in a nearby control area. - from Authors
