France A gold rush ? – Geophysical surveys in France

As part of the preliminary phase of exploration in relation to a mining research license in France, SIXENSE Geophysics was mandated to carry out geophysical measurements, in parallel with geochemical studies of soils and water analysis.

The ground in certain regions of France could contain between four and ten grams of gold per ton of rock, a fortune!

This license covers a territory of 47 km² in the department of La Creuse.

The aim of our study was to determine changes in the ground to clarify the geometry and extension of ‘rich’ structures discovered during previous work.

SIXENSE Geophysics therefore implemented different methods to measure the resistivity and magnetic field of the ground, as well as potential hydrothermal alteration zones.
