SUBSURFACE GEOLOGY MAPS OF NEVADA
Correlation of concealed geologic features with known mineralization
While mapping or doing reconnaissance work would it be useful to you to know that a buried, intermediate intrusive is 200 feet beneath your boots - or is present under the adjacent section? To know whether the pediment over which you are walking consists of a thick pile of volcanics or is composed of Paleozoic sedimentary rocks cut by dikes at a depth of 100 feet? To know that two major, deep-seated structures, not evident on your surface map, intersect adjacent to a blind, shallow granitic intrusive just a half mile to the north? This type of information is now available.
EDCON-PRJ's interpretive subsurface maps integrate mapped surface geology with quantitative, profile-based interpretations of non-exclusive, proprietary aeromagnetic data. Subsurface geologic features are delineated; depth and compositions are estimated. The relationships of known mineral occurrences to the interpreted subsurface geologic features are often remarkable.
