Abstract:
Various filtering and integration techniques were used to analyze geologic, geophysical and geochemical data from the Twin Peaks area located in the DeLamar mining district in Southwestern Idaho. In particular rank correlation and favorability analysis were employed in this study. The data analysis was used to delineate target areas considered favorable for epithermal gold-silver mineralization. The interpretation of geophysical data was emphasized because of the importance of subsurface geologic features and complications caused by post mineral cover. Field investigation of the target areas provides strong evidence supporting the potential for significant mineralization in four of the twelve target areas selected.
