A Guide for Mineral Exploration Through the Regolith in the Cobar Region, Lachlan Oregon, New South Wales

Ken MCQUEEN

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This series is about the regolith; that cover of weathered material between fresh rock and fresh air that blankets much of Australia. More specifically it is about exploration for mineral deposits in regolith-dominated terrains. Mineral exploration is never easy. Of the thousands of prospects chosen for evaluation each year, only a very small percentage are deemed to be sufficiently prospective to justify follow-up work, and of these only a handful at best will go on to yield economic mineral deposits. Intelligent and informed exploration must increase the chances of success, and a greater understanding of regolith types, and regolith processes can only help to shorten the odds in favour of the explorer.
