|Abstract: ||The project aim was to test the feasibility of the use of the geophysical multi-sensor platform (MSP) to perform rapid, cost-effective geophysical surveys of potential sites of mineral extraction. Such surveys must be of high enough resulution to detect small, weak anomalies due to archaeological features, but also penetrate deeply over a large area to provide an assessment of the mineral potential. Specific objectives are thus:
Adapt the current MSP for the purposes of the two surveys.
Survey a site with known archaeology and pre-existing geophysical data.
Survey a known mineral deposit with economic significance and show the data are relevant to that deposit.
Assess the quality of the results with regard to both the geophysical resolution and accuracy of the data, and the value of the data for the particular application.|
