Seismic reflection data were acquired and used successfully in hard rock terrain in a gold exploration campaign. An indirect approach was assumed which aimed to detect and delineate favourable structures which could have been fluid conduits and thus enabled precipitation of gold.

The results indicated a valuable new exploration approach for the gold mining industry.
