It is difficult to detect gold mineralization under cover of complex regolith comprising widespread ferruginous duricrust, extensive redistributed depositional and patchy residual materials of relict and erosional units by using gold (Au) analytical technique at Lawra belt. Commonly in these areas, the cover materials mask geochemical gold (Au) response to gold deposits under cover. Termite mound samples were collected from residually weathered materials. Fire assay (FA–AAS) was used to… CONTINUE READING
