    Equipment(s) for Underground Geophysical Mapping

    Hi Fellow Treasure Hunters,

    I have access to a great number of mountains in an undisclosed location in Asia. These mountains are rich in many metals and minerals including copper, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, lead, zinc, antimony, indium, zirconium and PGM (shiny shiny) ores. I am looking forward to obtain advice from a geologist to guide me about the EQUIPMENT required to map certain locations i.e. create a whole geophysical survey of the elements located UNDERGROUND to a depth of 100 meters in any location. I would want to know depth measurement, size of deposit, consistency of earth around it and any other information that can be achieved that I may have missed here.

    Budget is not an issue when it comes to purchasing the equipment. Your help will be highly appreciated.

    Long before you seriously consider underground geo physical mapping---I would start by geochemical testing your areas of interest.
    Geochemical testing is a low cost method of searching that will allow you to search many kilometers of ground quickly and at low cost.
    The anomalies you then locate by Geochemical testing would be the locations you then concentrate your Geophysical explorations.

    If you have the money--I would get a good mining engineer. Contrary to what most people believe--an expert can often save you lots of money in the long run.
    For example you could hire a graduate from the Colorado School of Mines in Boulder, Colorado

    How much are you willing to invest in the necessary equipment?

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Thank you for your answers. We have already done a lot of Geo Chemical testing mainly through handheld XRF machines. Thus we know we have "mountains rich in many metals and minerals including copper, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, lead, zinc, antimony, indium, zirconium and PGM (shiny shiny) ores." Our challenge now lies at detecting the deposits i.e. their depth and size and then moving forward from there.

    We interviewed a few experienced engineers but unfortunately they did not have much equipment knowledge which is integral at this point.

    We have a good budget for box-based equipment and other handhelds that may be required but definitely not at a vehicular level.

    We are still searching for the best possible equipment to achieve this task.

    Regards

    Don't need money, need expertise.

    Expertise for what ? The type objects you list as your objective were things like: "chromium, manganese, molybdenum, lead, zinc, antimony, indium, zirconium and PGM...." Sounds like you're more into open pit industrial mining. This is a metal detecting forum. So guys here are going after coins, relics, jewelry. To the extent some are into prospecting, it will be for gold nuggets, or panning/sluicing, etc..... I don't think anyone here is into the stuff you're alluding to.

    Maybe there's forums for guys into the other types minerals you are wanting to find. Good luck.
