Multi-scaled near surface exploration using ultrafine soils
Total Grant Value
This project was conceived to develop and test a new analytical workflow to separate the <2 μm soil and sediment fractions for multi-element analysis along with other, commonly not utilised physico-chemical parameters that should aid exploration.
The project delivered the method, workflow, and commercialised platform (UltraFine+ certified trademark pending); and demonstrated its success in experiments, orientation field surveys and new regional geochemical map products for Western Australia.
M0462a is an extension to this project.
