Impilahti Field course

Introduction to ore prospecting geology. Theoretical and practical training in ore prospecting and exploration. Geological mapping and studying magmatic and metamorphic Precambrian rocks.

Theoretical part includes the overview of local geology, structure and mineral deposits, as well as review of modern prospecting and exploration methods (geological structural mapping, soil and bedrock geochemistry, ground geophysics, data interpretation).

Practical part consists of:

  • Bedrock mapping and sampling
  • Soil sampling and geochemical analyses using portable XRF-detectors. Field data interpretation. Field geochemistry map plotting

All collected field prospecting data is being analysed and represented as a report. The report includes bedrock geological map, geochemistry maps and prospecting map with localized potential areas for the possible discovery.
