firstly, exploration targeting is generally driven by rigid deposit models and focuses more on specific features associated with mineral deposits than on the processes that formed them. the targeting is highly subjective in that target areas are selected based on the geological features that are considered relevant by the targeting geologist.
tin ore mineral deposits in nigeria with their locations ,production of tin is carried out by carbothermic reduction of the oxide ore with carbon or coke in the early 1900s nigeria was well known in tin mining and was the second tin producing country in the world with russia been at the lead but because of some much distraction by crude oil nigeria is currently in the 13 th

jan 27, 2021 the country has resources like petroleum, tin, limestone, coal and many others. below are some top facts about the mineral resources found in nigeria. coal which is a mineral resource in nigeria was first discovered in 1909 at enugu. the exploration of coal started at the ogubate mine in 1918.
may 31, 2020 dr. moses (m.a.) olade is a retired professor of economic geology who has lectured and published widely on the mineral deposits of nigeria. he obtained a b.sc. (hons.) degree in geology in 1969 from the premier university of ibadan, nigeria, and m.sc. in economic geology from the university of alberta, edmonton, canada in 1972 where he studied
surface geophysical surveys have been applied to mineral and petroleum exploration for many years. a magnetic compass was used in sweden in the mid-1600s to find iron ore deposits. the lateral extent of the comstock ore body was mapped using self-potential methods in the 1880s. a very crude type of seismic survey measured the energy resulting
sep 22, 2019 mineral resources are materials of economic interest found in or on the earths crust in such quality, quantity and form that can be considered for economic extraction. in nigeria, mineral resources play a great role in the economic sector. in fact, the nigerian economic is skewed toward the exploration of minerals specifically petroleum. this makes
oct 19, 2015 here is a how series on ore mineral deposit formation acting as a free online exploration geology courses to help non-technical people understand ore deposits, how they form, how they are explode for, how they are evaluated and mined and how the metals and minerals are extracted from the ore. the talks highlights some of the features of the main ore
mining - mining - prospecting and exploration various techniques are used in the search for a mineral deposit, an activity called prospecting. once a discovery has been made, the property containing a deposit, called the prospect, is explored to determine some of the more important characteristics of the deposit. among these are its size, shape, orientation in space, and
hydrocarbon exploration (coal, gas, oil) regional geological studies (over areas of 100s of km2 ) exploration of mineral deposits. engineering site investigation. hydrogeological investigation . detection of subsurface cavities . mapping of leachate and contaminant plumes. location and definition of buried metallic objects. archaeo-geophysics.
magnetic methods are more popular in mineral exploration than gravity, not least because magnetic data can be quickly recorded from the air and in conjunction with other geophysical surveys. land gravity surveys, by contrast, may require greater field efforts (figs. 1, 5 and 6), more time, and more commitment of scarce capital.
3. materials and methods in mineral exploration studies, method selection and tools to be applied are often dependent upon the mode of occurrence and formation of targeted mineral deposits 28. this research has its target on gold occurrences, which occur in fractures and are related to shear zones. therefore, the best
