Introduction
This Special Issue of Airborne Geophysics for mineral exploration, aims to gather high-quality original research articles, reviews, and technical notes on the use of Geophysics for Mineral location and exploration. Airborne based platforms for acquiring geophysical data is popular for assessing large areas. During the last few years, geophysical survey has developed considerably in terms of instrumentation, data processing and visualization methods, and also image processing and fusion techniques. Together with remote sensing and GIS, it is becoming increasingly integrated into mineral investigations as the best solution, swiftly applicable, efficient, low cost and within non-destructive techniques (NDTs). This Special Issue aims to highlight the most recent advances of geophysics applied to mineral investigation worldwide, bearing in mind the geographical constraints of the regions, and the significance, diversity, and number of geological structures. The application of all the main techniques of geophysical survey to a wide range of mineral targets carried out recently will be discussed critically. Current developments in instrumentation data processing, as well as multi-technique approach risk analysis studies to evaluate the potential of mineral investigations will be presented. The next generation of geophysical works, which will have to meet challenges in relation to the protection and management of mineral resources, will also considered.
Aims and Scope:
  1. Geophysics applied to mineral prospecting
  2. Remote sensing and GIS in mineral investigation
  3. Non-destructive techniques
  4. Surveying Techniques
  5. Near surface geophysics
  6. Mining risk analysis
