Geoelectric anomalies of the Ukrainian shield and their relation to mineral deposits

T. Burakhovich, I. Nikolaev, E. Sheremet, B. Shirkov


Results of modern experimental electromagnetic studies completed during 2005-2014 along 13 profiles located mainly within suture zones of the USh have been given. The main result of geo-electric studies of the USh is the revealing of numerous local and regional anomalies of electric conductivity according to the data of 3D modeling, the presence of low-resistance deep anomalies, confined to zones of metasomatism along extensive fault zones; conjugation of low-resistance anomalies with metallogenic ore knots and geochemical anomalies.
