The Role of Airborne EM in Modern Multi-method Aerogeophysical Surveys for Ore Deposit Exploration

When searching for ore deposits, various modifications of aeroelectromagnetic exploration play a crucial role, aimed at both the direct detection of potential deposits and the mapping of indirect factors contributing to their localization. Depending on the geological structure and geo-electrical characteristics of the section, both frequency and time-domain modifications of the method may have the best economic and exploration efficiency. Aerogeophysica has at its disposal virtually the entire range of hardware and technical means for implementing the main modifications of the method, including those implemented with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Modern hardware and technical means for the main modifications of the methods allow for the integration with virtually any other aerogeophysical technologies, with the possibility of placing them on a single carrier, examples of which exist.
