Alternative Title

Application of electrical prospecting methods to two types of sulfide ore deposits

Abstract

"Although certain types of sulphide ores, especially those near the surface of the earth, lend themselves very well to electrical prospecting methods, quite the opposite is true of the extensive deposits of the type found in the Mississippi River Valley. The purpose of this investigation was to discover additional facts concerning two distinct types of sulphide ores, and therefrom to develop a new technique which would be applicable to prospecting for the lead and zinc deposits found in the Mississippi Valley"--Introduction, page 1.
