Abstract

Buried, possibly mineralized granite cupolas at the Silsilah tin deposit in Saudi Arabia have been successfully located using a closely spaced electric-field-ratio profiling technique. In this study electrical fields at 27 and 270 Hz across grounded electrodes spaced 50m apart were measured along six traverses. The technique allowed the authors to identify and distinguish among unroofed granite cupolas, cupolas with their aplite-pegmatite apical contact zones intact, strong and weak greisens, dikes, faults, and pervasively argillized rocks. -from Authors
