F029 3D SEISMIC IMAGING FOR MASSIVE SULFIDE EXPLORATION Introduction For more than 70 years reflection seismic methods have been used with great success to explore sedimentary basins for hydrocarbons. Some problems associated with the application of seismic profiling in the hardrock environment for mineral exploration differ from those encountered in sedimentary environments (Milkereit and Eaton 1998). In the 1970-ties and 80-ties many tests of high-resolution seismic imaging methods for mineral exploration have had only limited success. Recently however 3-D seismic imaging techniques are used where a fully comprehensive prospect evaluation is desired or where mine planning issues need to be
