Tree Bark Sampling In rare cases where conditions on the ground discourage other types of geochemical surveying it may be necessary to sample tree bark. Tree bark in appropriate zones is harvested and tested for mineralization much like soil samples. Due to the biological nature of the samples, careful interpretation is required and only certain […]
Standard Soil Sampling Like MMI, standard soil sampling is surveying for anomalous metal values in surficial deposits (such as glacial till, colluvium, fluvial deposits, etc.). The main differences between MMI and standard soil samplingare the sampling procedure and the type and breadth of analysis performed in the lab.
Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) Soil Sampling MMI soil sampling is an advance geochemical exploration technique proven in finding mineral deposits, particularly at depth where it has a distinct advantage over standard soil sampling. Its advantages include: few false anomalies, sharply defined anomalies, repeatability, defined metal zones and associations, detection of deeply buried mineralization, low noise, […]
Rock Geochemistry Rock geochemistry is the process of taking rock samples from interesting sites and analyzing those samples for their mineralization content. This type of surveying takes place during the reconnaissance phase.
