14.05.2021 | Lumex Instruments took part in vEGU General Assembly 2021

May, 2021. Lumex Instruments participated in the EGU General Assembly that was held on April 19-30 in the online mode.

Specialists of British Columbia Geological Survey (Alexei S. Rukhlov, Luke Ootes, Adrian S. Hickin) together with Lumex Instruments’ expert Nikolay R. Mashyanov made a presentation “Mercury vapour haloes in near-surface air above ore deposits and faults on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada”.

Mercury is one of the most universal pathfinders of many types of ore deposits and is widely used for geochemical exploration with sampling rocks, soils, and sediments. Moreover, this volatile element can also create gaseous haloes over ore bodies that can be detected by ultrasensitive detectors such as the portable RA-915M mercury analyzer. The feasibility of ore bodies revealing using fast real-time air survey was shown at different types of sediment-covered and exposed mineralized zones and faults in British Columbia.

The direct and continuous air survey with the portable RA-915M mercury analyzer reveals Hg vapor halos over Cu-Ag-Au, Au-Ag-Cu, open and sediment-covered polymetallic mineralization.

These data were presented at the EGU21 in session ERE5.4 – “Mineral exploration for the XXI Century”.

Specialists have access to the EGU21 presentations viewing and discussion until 31 May.

The EGU21 General Assembly has involved 18,155 scientists from 136 countries, attending 13,643 live presentations in 642 scientific sessions, 5 Union Symposia, and 32 Medal and Award Lectures sessions; attending 5 Great Debates and 56 Short Courses; networking in 47 Union-organized and 72 pop-up networking events; and attending 117 side events.
