For the past 30 years, considerable geophysical interest has been focussed at mineral exploration of the Troodos Ophiolite, Cyprus. The local mining environment broadly comprises medium to small scale sulphide lenses, hosted at intermediate levels of the extrusive section. Mineral concentrations result from post-extension secondary phase alteration along ridge-parallel and transcurrent faults. Complex vertical and lateral inhomogeneities in the ophiolite section have complicated geophysical ground studies. Conventional ground exploration techniques give both inconclusive and inconsistent results when used to delineate structural features and target anomalies. Some previous success has been achieved with the I.P. method for detailed target evaluation, but this labour- and time-intensive approach is not suitable for broader scale exploration of the Ophiolite.
