Resistivity / IP at the Century Deposit, Australia


Surface DC resistivity and induced polarization (IP) data are inverted to generate 2D models of resistivity and chargeability at a sulfide ore deposit in NW Queensland, Australia. The resistivity model helps delineate the thickness of resistive limestone overburden. The chargeability model (that is, the IP inversion result in the accompanying figure) delineates the top and the lateral extent of the orebody. It also shows that the orebody has been dislocated by an intersecting fault.
