Geological mapping is the process of creating detailed maps that depict the distribution and characteristics of rocks, minerals and other geological features in a particular area.

It involves the systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of geological data including the study of rock types, structures and their spatial relationships. Advantages of Geological Mapping in mineral exploration ….

  1. Identification of Mineralization
    Exploration helps to locate areas with pottential mineral deposits. By the Geologist finding the distrubution of various rock types, alteration zones, and geological structures the Geologists can Identify areas were mineralization is likely to occur.This information guides exploration efforts and helps focus resources on areas with the highest mineral pottential.
  2. Targeting exploration activities
    Geological maps helps in identifying and defining exploration targets by highlighting areas with favorable geological characteristics. For example maps can identify areas with specific rock formations associated with mineral deposits or areas were geological structures create favourable conditions for mineralization. This information is used to plan and target exploration targets such as drilling, trenching, geophysical studies etc.
  3. Assessing mineral pottential
    Geological maps allow Geologists to asses mineral pottential of a region. By Intergrating geological data with other information such as geochemical surveys and geophysical data, the Geologist can evaluate the likelihood of finding economically viable mineral deposits. This helps mining companies prioritize exploration efforts and make informed decisions regarding further investments.
