Structural and lithological delineation is seen as an emerging mining application of seismic imaging. The general benefits expected from applying delineation techniques include: reduced economic risk, shorter project timelines, and more accurate resource evaluations. The structural aspect has been documented relatively well in the past decade and consists mainly of mapping faults, fracture zones, and dissolution features, bearing an impact on geo-technical models and designs. Mineral resource delineation by seismic techniques is a comparatively recent addition to the seismic application menu and is seen as a promising technique for the coming decades.
