Borehole radar is a high-resolution electrodynamic technique for the remote sensing of, inter alia,<br>geological systems. It can help geologists and mining engineers to map ore bodies and fault structures, and plan<br>mining activities. The radar’s performance is determined by the electromagnetic and geometric properties of the<br>medium in which the radar is deployed. In this paper propagation at the interface between gneissic granite bedrock<br>and clay rich sand overburden is investigated. The purpose of the work is to determine whether the interface can<br>be used as a long-range waveguide from which pulses can be launched to detect the presence of an ore body.
