Scott

Canada
InfiniTEM® detects a conductor at 450 meter depth!
 

Located 450 m below surface and shielded by 20 m of conductive overburden, the Scott Lake deposit was not detectable by conventional TDEM

During the winter of 2008 Abitibi Geophysics conducted an InfiniTEM survey to the west of the central lens. Survey results suggested the presence of a conductor at a depth greater than 350m.

This was confirmed by numerical modeling.

(measured response shown in black, model shown in red)

Holes drilled to test the anomaly intercepted a large zone of stringers and massive sulphides at a depth of 450m.

Grades of 2.04% Cu over 25 metres were reported.
