WHAT IS FAULT-MOD?
FAULT-MOD generates a highly accurate, unbiased probability volume that maps the distribution of faults in the subsurface at mine site scale and down several kilometres into the subsurface.
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR GEOTECHNICAL
Identification of post mineralization faulting can also provide valuable input into mine design and risk mitigation as fault zones may affect the integrity of underground mine workings.
Our continuous 3D fault models provide a new level of input into mining to reduce the costly risk of unexpected events such as caving deviations, pit wall failures or difficulties during shaft sinking and other underground development.
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR EXPLORATION
Faults are often focal points for mineralization during the formation of an ore deposit. Understanding the fault trends and relationships in 3D can have a direct impact on drill targeting in exploration.
How Fault-Mod helps our clients.
“These latest drill results from Yaouré give us further confidence in the high-grade gold contained beneath the CMA open pit… we look forward to progressing Perseus’s first underground mining development.”
“Next steps at CMA include continued analysis of data generated from 3D seismic to define targets for further drill testing.”
– Jeff Quartermaine, CEO & MD Perseus Mining, News Release, 13/4/2022
“The information seismic surveying give us is unparalleled technically in my view, let alone providing, on a bang-for-buck cost basis, a very, very good data set for the money that you spend.“
“The Zodiac discovery is a game-changer of enormous proportion.”
“The 765g/t intersection from the seismic reflector at Zodiac is nothing short of spectacular.”
“We see seismic as one of the tools in our arsenal which will significantly extend the life of these assets.”
– Bill Beament, Northern Star Resources Limited, May 2022.
3D Seismic has been highly effective at mapping the geometry of key structures down to 2000m at Mawson which is providing critical insight into mineralisation trends and identifying new targets below the current discovery zone.
BACKGROUND Legend Mining is an Australian exploration company who focus on value-added mineral discoveries. The company’s current exploration program is on its nickel-copper Rockford Project in the Fraser Range, Western Australia.
SOLUTION HiSeis were contracted to acquire, process and interpret a 3D seismic survey over the Mawson Prospect to illuminate geology beyond existing methods; including multi-physics proprietary workflows from Epicentre digital platform.
RESULTS Five new high priority targets have been identified from 3D seismic workflows in Epicentre. Diamond drilling has already commenced. “The Legend team eagerly awaits the results of this drilling over the coming months” – Mark Wilson, MD.
