ABSTRACT

A DC electrical resistivity and Time Domain Induced Polarization (TDIP) survey and on-site test were undertaken at an iron ore exploration area site in Pagoh, Malaysia for the purpose of imaging the possible area for mineral exploration. Two geophysical survey lines were conducted to identify and make possible to enhance the resolution of subsurface structure when compare to resistivity surveys alone. These two resistivity and induced polarization survey lines were carried out crossing the iron ore area giving a dense coverage over the area. The results show that it is possible to both resolve the geological structure using electrical resistivity and induce polarization method. In particular, it is possible to find the iron ore (hematite) which also correlates with the geostatistical analysis obtained from two data sets of survey lines and assisted with the on-site sampling test. The interpretation of the geophysical imaging finding was constrained by the on-site sampling test results. The results show that the on-site test and survey are successful in giving a valid and reliable infield data in producing iron ore for marketing purpose. The results from infield survey model and geostatistical analysis are discussed here supporting by the successful iron ore exploration of the study area which is for economic important in mining and industrial purposes.

Badmus and Olatinsu (2009) have carried out 62 vertical electrical sounding (VES) to map limestone deposits. they got that higher apparent resistivity rate and lower apparent amplitude-frequency rate exist in the gob without water by detection and the position of the gob underground was precisely given. 2006) on saturated kaolinite-. 2012a). Induced polarization (IP) measurements were also conducted by (Slater et al. They used induced polarization method in exploration of the Baizhangzi Gold Deposit in Liaoming and the electrical anomalies were drill tested which intersected significant mineralization. where the porosity of each mixture was calculated from weight loss after drying. (2001) has used induced polarization method in polymetal mines exploration for polymetal bodies. Electric resistivity surveying along the earth’s surface is a well-known geophysical exploration technique (Bery and Saad. Electrical property contrast between ore bodies and country rocks. Electrical resistivity surveys are used to provide information on the depth to bedrock and information on the electrical properties of bedrock and overlying units. 1990). significant using electrical resistivity has been used for mineral exploration using cross-borehole electric methods in ore body delineation (Qian et al. against a background of relatively large financial rewards once such deposits are found. induced polarization-central gradient array and induced polarization-sounding survey were conducted by (Li et al. 2007). iron-..

In this study we examined the applicability of DC electrical resistivity and time-domain induced polarization (TDIP) surveys of the subsurface to discrimination of lithogenic contributions in area characterised by good potential area for iron are exploration. They have used complex resistivity method called spectral induced polarization.. Due to its conceptual simplicity. Most geophysical techniques have as their origin the oil and mining industries. at initial exploration stage.. Yu et al. In such industries the primary need of a developer is to identify the locations of minerals for exploitation. 17 [2012]. Two techniques that were conducted in this study area were electrical resistivity and induced polarization (IP) method. The IP method makes use of the capacitive action of the subsurface to locate zones where clay and conductive minerals are disseminated within their host rock. Bund.

Variations in electrical resistivity may indicate changes in composition. this resistivity method has been used for environmental surveys (Bery and Saad.Vol. A common method is to integrate the voltage electronically. Electrical resistivity surveys have been used for many decades in hydrogeological. More recently. the medium resistivity ρ . Bund. we presented the results of electrical resistivity and induced polarization methods to determine the distribution of iron ore in Pagoh. The ground resistivity is related to various geological parameters such as mineral and fluid content. layer or contaminant levels. There is granitic intrusion of Upper Carboniferous age nearby the studied area (Map 1). Malaysia. resistivity and conductivity) of survey model. the ore bodies found in Malaysia are featured by the strong supergene enrichment by tropical weathering process. In this paper. The fundamental physical law used in resistivity surveys is Ohm’s Law that govern the flow of current in the ground. J is the current density and Ε is the electrical field intensity. In practice. mining and geotechnical investigation. porosity and degree of water saturation in the rock (Bery and Saad. W 3 resistivity from infield survey and on-site sampling test.

The second layer bottom is below 5 m from the surface has resistivity range value of 500 to 2500 Ω. the resistivity and chargeability model can be divided into two layers. These physical values range shows that the ore can be classified as soil-hematite material. it was chosen in this paragraph to show the results from chargeability parameter.0 to 30.m and chargeability range value of 5. the resistivity and chargeability model for LINE 02 also can be divided into two layers.1 to 1. The first layer on top with 4 to 5 m thickness from surface can be classified as mixes of alluvium hard layer with boulders with resistivity range value of 15 to 250 Ω. α Y ay and α Z are the relative weight given to the smoothness filters in x-.

This is supported by the chargeability range value for this portion is also within 0. The judgment for this interpretation made base on chargeability value of hematite has lower values compares to alluvium values and hematite classified as oxides material compared to alluvium. the chargeability value of this model section is quite low and similar to section model LINE 01.
