Paper Abstract

This paper describes the application of remote sensing data, including TM images and color infrared airborne photographs, for predication about gold mineral deposits in Northwest part of China. Through TM image processing, we got a set of information enhanced TM images. Then all the information enhanced TM images and color infrared airborne photographs were comprehensively interpreted. It proved that the strata, intrusive igneous rocks, faults and folds and alteration zones could all be revealed. By analyzing the feature of image anomaly and gravity anomaly, we find a big fault zone and choose it as the field work area which was supposed to be the most favorable place for mineralization. Referring to the result of gold content of samples which were collected in field and image feature, we circled the target area of gold deposit on interpretation map. At last a prospecting model for this area was established.
