New approach for mineral exploration by using geophysics

The presentation presents a new approach in mineral exploration. The method is proposed on the basis of a new experience in the application of the magnetotelluric method in the area of ​​the Olympic Dam unique deposit in Australia. At the first stage, zones of high electrical conductivity in the middle earth's crust should be identified. After that, the channels that control ore provinces should be localized. At this stage, it is rational to use the magnetovariational and magnetotelluric methods. At the next stage, it is advisable to apply a set of geophysical methods aimed directly to find a deposit.
