Regional stereoscopic mapping study using remotely sensed imagery completed

The accurate distribution of the principal geological units and the structures which affect them, have successfully been photogeologically captured relatively rapidly from remotely sensed data over an area covering >50,000 square kilkometres. Within the limitations of the resolution of the remotely sensed imagery (Landsat8 pansharped to 15m, SRTM 30m DEM data) and to the extent discernible in the spectral and morphological features evident in these data, a GIS dataset has been compiled for the area of interest.

Numerous features likely to be directly or indirectly associated with hydrothermal activity and consequently, of interest from a precious and base metal endowment perspective, have been identified. These features have been described and located and warrant ground-truthing with a view to assessing and prioritising exploration targets in this region.
