Abstract

A similar version of this slide presentation was given at the 2009 Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME) annual meeting in Denver, Colorado, in February 2009. This presentation was part of the 'Industrial Minerals: Reducing Carbon Footprint in Industrial Minerals' session. Two other related talks were presented in the same session by Sam Krevor of Columbia University. The first talk provided a status report on mineral CO2 sequestration as an industrial process. The second talk presented a national-scale geologic compilation of rocks favorable for mineral CO2 sequestration in the United States. This presentation, an extension of the latter talk, shows how airborne geophysical data can be used to further refine the geologic mapping of ultramafic rocks.
