Exploration Geology Course on How are Mineral Deposits Formed
The final post in the Exploration Geology Course series on How are Ore Mineral Deposits Formed deals with ore resources and reserves and once the mineral deposit is discovered, the process that is taken to evaluate it and reach a go or no go decision to mine. Ore resources and reserves and deal with how resources and reserves are delineated and
Exploration for Covered Ore Deposits USGS
Exploration for Covered Ore Deposits. Ore deposits covered by transported overburden, such as gravels, are more difficult to locate than ore deposits that are buried in the host rock in which they formed. New research using super sensitive analytical techniques provide scientists with a

Overview of Exploration Methods NSW Mining
Mineral exploration is undertaken in stages, with each step dependent on the results of the previous stage. Drilling is undertaken only in advanced mineral exploration and the most common drilling method is very similar to water bore drilling. This fact sheet Overview of Exploration Methods.
