Radiometric / Gamma Ray Spectrometry

The GR 256 and GR 512 gamma ray spectrometers are used for the following applications:

1)  geological mapping (lithologic and structural)

2)  radiogenic mineral exploration (uranium, thorium  etc.)

3)  hydrothermal alteration detection (porphyry copper-gold, volcanogenic massive sulfide and epithermal gold deposits are often associated with K enrichment of the host rock)

4)  radiogenic and chemical element pollution studies, and

5)  superficial structural discontinuity detection
