Journal Article: Integrated Geochemical Exploration For Deep-Seated Solid And Gaseous Mineral Resources

Abstract
The location and qualitative evaluation of deep-seated deposits requires the application of various geochemical methods at different stages. Together with geological-tectonic analysis, the first step should be the lithogeochemical characterization of the geological environment (and of geologically comparable units) to obtain a good understanding of the genesis of the rocks and mineral deposits. In this way, one is able to estimate the ore-bearing potential of the region. During prospecting, a great variety of geochemical methods should be used. The analysis of mobile elements and isotopes (mercury, noble gases, hydrocarbons, radon) in conjunction with geophysical, especially geothermal, methods is needed. The application of a carefully chosen system of geochemical and geophysical methods is an essential factor for successful exploration, especially for hidden deposits.
