Question by Advanc3d: Help with Geochemistry Report (geochemical exploration)?
i dont want answers but rather help, just a few questions as i dont quite understand the questions being asked.
the report topic is
“Discuss the methods and technologies employed for geochemical exploration using stream sediment and soil samples.”
Answer by Andrew G
What minerals in a stream sediment or compounds in a soil sample are going to tell you something about the parent rock – alteration products, etc? What tests would you perform. Remember, you are looking for variation. What variation would you expect in a stream sediment? Which minerals would pbe present; which would have been removed through weathering?
