Application of geo radio positioning methods for the investigation of geomechanical properties of rock in placers of the North

K.O. Sokolov, D.V. Khosoev

The article presents a case study of the geo radio positioning method application for the investigation of structural characteristics of virgin rock in the cryolithic zone. A zone of tectonic fracturing and fissuring, karst and breccias areas of placer deposits developed by Almazy Anabara OAO were chosen as a research subject matter. The geo radio positioning method efficiency has been proved for the investigation of the structure and geomechanical properties of virgin rock in placers of the North.
