Tungsten concentrations in plants and soils as a means of detecting scheelite-bearing ore-bodies in New Zealand

Abstract

Plant and soil sampling was carried out across scheelite-bearing ore-bodies at six areas of different geological, vegetational, climatic and topographical environments in the South Island of New Zealand. The feasibility of using the concentration of tungsten in plants and soils to locate the scheelite was investigated for all the areas. These regions may be… (More)
