Predictive mapping of massive sulphide potential in the western part of the Escambray Terrain, Cuba

  title={Predictive mapping of massive sulphide potential in the western part of the Escambray Terrain, Cuba},
  author={A. Rojas},
The lack of a comprehensive massive sulphide potential map is a major factor that holds back investment and development for massive sulphide exploration and mining in the Escambray terrain. To address this problem, new techniques and methods were applied to a complete geo-exploration dataset for predictive mapping of potential of the study area. The deposit recognition criteria were the bases for extraction spatial evidence from the geo-datasets based on the characteristics of massive sulphide… 
The research area covers the administration of the Pacitan District, East Java Province. Geological data, such as lithological data, structural data, contour data and alteration, were used in
Application of Different Image Processing Techniques on Aster and ETM+ Images for Exploration of Hydrothermal Alteration Associated with Copper Mineralizations Mapping Kehdolan Area (Eastern Azarbaijan Province-Iran)
The Kehdolan area is located at 20 kilometers to the south-east of Dozdozan Town (Eastern Azarbaijan Province). According to structural geology, volconic rocks are situated in Alborz-Azarbyjan
Monitoring hydrothermal alteration in active volcanoes using remote sensing: the case of Turrialba volcano (Costa Rica)
En este trabajo se analiza la alteracion hidrotermal en el volcan Turrialba, sistema activo de la Cordillera Volcanica Central de Costa Rica. Para ello se analizaron diferentes imagenes en fechas


Gamma-ray spectrometric and oxygen-isotope mapping of regional alteration halos in massive sulphide districts: an example from Panorama, central Pilbara Craton
The Panorama district, in the central Pilbara Craton (WA), is perhaps the best exposed, least deformed volcanic-hosted massive sulphide (VHMS) district in the world, and represents an ideal
Developing a geographic expert system for regional mapping of volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposit potential
A personal computer-based geographic information system (GIS) is used to develop a geographic expert system (GES) for mapping and evaluating volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposit potential, resulting in a map showing the relative favorability for VMS deposits.
The representation of geoscience information for data integration
Three representation methods—probability measures, Dempster-Shafer belief functions, and membership functions in fuzzy sets—and their corresponding estimation procedures are presented here with analyses of the implications and of the assumptions that are required in each approach to thematic mapping.
A regionalized multivariate approach to target selection in geochemical exploration
Characteristic analysis is proposed as a multivariate technique for comparing regional unknown cell data with data for explored areas. Original data are first converted into binary arrays according
A software defoliant for geological analysis of band ratios
Abstract Vegetation impedes the geological analysis of band ratio images, because it is both widely distributed in the surficial environment and can be spectrally similar to ferric oxides and clays
Characteristic analysis—1981: Final program and a possible discovery
The latest ornewest version of thecharacteristicanalysis (NCHARAN)computer program offers the exploration geologist a wide variety of options for integrating regionalized multivariate data. The
Identification of ore-deposition environment from trace-element geochemistry of associated igneous host rocks
Synopsis The tectonic environment of formation of volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits and porphyry tin and copper deposits can be identified from the geochemical characteristics of the associated
Estimating a favorability equation for the integration of geodata and selection of mineral exploration targets
The notion of a favorability function for delineation of exploration targets has attracted attention among geologists and geomathematicians over the last decade, as indicated by the number of
A Plate Tectonic Model for the Origin of Porphyry Copper Deposits
The theory of lithosphere plate tectonics, embodying the concepts of sea-floor spreading, transform faulting, and underthrusting at continental margins and island arcs, is employed as a basis for an
