Case study of ground penetrating radar application for diamond placer exploration

K.O. Sokolov

The article describes the opportunities provided by ground penetrating radar in geophysical exploration of diamond placers. Different types of placers and characteristics of methods of geophysical exploration are discussed. Based on the practice of ground penetrating radar application in placer deposit exploration it is proposed to use this method for in-mine exploration and additional exploration of placer sites planned for mining.
