Experience of using traditional and new technologies of geophysics in prospecting and exploration of ore deposits in Kazakhstan

The report presents examples of the use of: innovative low-altitude magnetic survey technology with an unmanned aerial vehicle; high resolution gravity; impulse electrical prospecting in the ground (TEM) and borehole (BHTEM) variants; electro-prospecting by the method of induced polarization using the technology of vector measurements and electro-tomography with multielectrode installations. The results of geophysical studies can significantly improve the effectiveness of exploration.
