Combination of geochemical and structural data to determine the exploration target of copper hydrothermal deposits in the Feizabad district

Mobin Saremi; Saeed Yousefi; Mahyar Yousefi

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 23 January 2024


  The Mineral Prospectivity Mapping (MPM) is a procedure of integrating various exploration data to identify promising areas for follow up mineral exploration programs. MPM facilitates identification of mineral deposit prospects through reducing search spaces for the purpose of mitigating cost and time ...  Read More

Delineation of Gold Exploration Targets based on Prospectivity Models through an Optimization Algorithm

Kamran Mostafaei; Mohammad Nabi Kianpour; Mahyar Yousefi

Volume 15, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 597-611


  Mineral prospectivity mapping (MPM) is a multi-staged process aiming at delimiting exploration targets. Experts’ knowledge is an indispensable component of MPM, and might be required (i) while translating signature features of ore-forming processes into a suite of maps, namely evidence layers, ...  Read More

Should Geochemical Indicators Be Integrated to Produce Enhanced Signatures of Mineral Deposits? A Discussion with Regard to Exploration Scale

Mahyar Yousefi; Samaneh Barak; Amir Salimi; Saeed Yousefi

Volume 14, Issue 3 , July 2023, , Pages 1011-1018


  In this paper, we discuss the concepts behind dispersion patterns of geochemical anomalies when applied for prospecting mineral deposits in different exploration scales. The patterns vary from regional to local scale geochemical surveys, which is due to the differences in the corresponding underlying ...  Read More

Mineral Potential Modeling of Porphyry Copper Deposits using Continuously-Weighted Spatial Evidence Layers and Union Score Integration Method

E. Bahri; A. Alimoradi; M. Yousefi

Volume 12, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 743-751


  There are different exploration methods, each of which may introduce a number of promising exploration targets. However, due to the financial and time constraints, only a few of them are selected as the exploration priorities. Instead of the individual use of any exploration method, it is common to integrate ...  Read More

Delineation of podiform-type chromite mineralization using geochemical mineralization prospectivity index and staged factor analysis in Balvard area (SE Iran)

P. Afzal; M. Yusefi; M. Mirzaie; E. Ghadiri-Sufi; S. Ghasemzadeh; L. Daneshvar Saein

Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2019, , Pages 705-715


  The aim of this work was to delineate the prospects of podiform-type chromite by staged factor analysis and geochemical mineralization prospectivity index in Balvard area, SE Iran. The stream sediment data and fault density were used as the exploration features for prospectivity modeling in the studied ...  Read More
