OreVision™ Induced Polarization in Kazakhstan – An Update and Case Study

Nomad Geo Services and Abitibi Geophysics completed several induced polarisation surveys in Kazakhstan during 2018 using the deep penetrating OreVision™ technology, described by Nind et al in a talk presented during the Minex Central Asia 2018 conference. OreVision™ increases the depth of penetration of dipole-dipole and pole-dipole induced polarisation surveys without sacrificing resolution, by increasing the n-spacings with a constant a-spacing.

Biryuk Altyn LLP contracted NGS to carry out an OreVision™ Induced Polarization survey along profiles located on their property south east of Moyytyn. The target is porphyry copper. The data were acquired by a combined NGS and Abitibi Geophysics crew in December 2018. Inversion and interpretation were completed by an Abitibi Geophysics geophysicist. Several high priority targets were identified for an upcoming drill program. With Biryuk Altyn’s permission, the inversion results with recommended drill targets will be presented in this talk.
