West Africa has emerged as a significant gold producer, with the Archean and Paleoproterozoic rocks (e.g. Birimian and Tarkwaian) from within the West African Craton being the most prospective.  The largest gold production in this region is from Ghana, Burkina Faso Read more... about Regional GIS based exploration targeting studies in data poor environments

Gold deposits in the Chirano district in SW Ghana are hosted in a variety of structural settings along the Chirano shear zone (CSZ), in Paleoproterozoic rocks of the Sefwi-Bibiani belt. Most gold mineralisation occurs in strongly sheared and hydrothermally altered Birimian

Aeromagnetic surveys are a recognized mineral exploration technique, but do not often utilize their full potential. By integrating multiple data sets, a map outlining the structural and geological history can be produced.

SRK conducted a geological and geophysical modelling study of Darlot-Centenary Gold Mine, Western Australia. This study defined geological boundaries where drilling was limited, allowing for targeting of potential extensions.
