Sub-Audio Magnetics helps pinpoint targets invisible to IP surveys

 Deeper drilling at Carlow Castle shows depth potential

A paradigm shift in exploration has pointed to depth potential and a “traditional” gold deposit at Artemis Resources’ Carlow Castle gold-copper-cobalt project in the Pilbara, according to executive director Ed Mead. He told Mining News from the US that sub-audio magnetics had helped pinpoint targets invisible to IP surveys.

The drilling programme at Carlow Castle focussed on an initial 1.2 km of a 4km mineralised trend identified using Sub-Audio Magnetics (SAM) geophysics and geochemistry.

Mead said the results suggested the mineralisation around Karratha was different to other places in Western Australia and the company would use the SAM exploration technique to look for other blind deposits.
