Satellite Image Processing: Application for Alteration Separation based on U-Statistic Method in Zafarghand Porphyry System (Iran)

Seyyed Saeed Ghannadpour; Morteza Hasiri; Hadi Jalili; Somayeh Talebiesfandarani

Volume 15, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 667-681


  The Zafarghand area (as a porphyry Cu deposit) is located in the northeast of Isfahan and southeast of Ardestan, which is a part of the Iran-Central structural zone, and more precisely, it is located in the Urmia-Dokhtar volcanic belt. In the porphyry Cu deposits exploration, identifying and determining ...  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

Robust Principal Component Analysis and Fractal Methods to Delineate Mineralization-Related Hydrothermally-Altered Zones from ASTER Data: A Case Study of Dehaj Terrain, Central Iran

N. Habibkhah; H. Hassani; A. Maghsoudi; M. Honarmand

Volume 11, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 1023-1037


  The Dehaj area, located in the southern part of the Urumieh-Dokhtar magmatic belt, is a well-endowed terrain hosting a number of world-class porphyry copper deposits. These deposits are all hosted in an acidic to intermediate volcano-plutonic sequence greatly affected by various types of the hydrothermal ...  Read More

Development of Geometallurgical Indices for Semi-Autogenous Grinding at Sarcheshmeh Porphyry Copper Mine

S. Mohammadi; B. Rezai; A. A. Abdolahzadeh

Volume 11, Issue 2 , April 2020, , Pages 375-385


  Geometallurgy tries to predict the instability the behavior of ores caused by variability in the geological settings, and to optimize the mineral value chain. Understanding the ore variability and subsequently the process response are considered to be the most important functions of an accurate geometallurgical ...  Read More

A Comparative Study of SVM and RF Methods for Classification of Alteration Zones Using Remotely Sensed Data

N. Mahvash Mohammadi; A. Hezarkhani

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 49-61


  Identification and mapping of the significant alterations are the main objectives of the exploration geochemical surveys. The field study is time-consuming and costly to produce the classified maps. Therefore, the processing of remotely sensed data, which provide timely and multi-band (multi-layer) data, ...  Read More
