Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
A 3D-3C seismic data set was acquired over the Lalor Lake VMS deposit, located near Snow Lake Manitoba, to provide images of the ore zones and host rocks, and to assess the applicability and potential benefits of P-S waves for deep mineral exploration. An analysis of borehole logging data shows that ore zones associated with pyrite and diorite should produce strong reflection on seismic data. Clear reflections are locally observed at the location of shallower ore zones. Alteration and post-metamorphism increased the P-wave velocity and density of felsic volcanic rocks but the impact of this change has not been clearly identified on seismic data. Many prominent and continuous reflections of lithological origin are observed close to the base of the Chisel sequence. P-S results are not discussed here but will be presented at the workshop.
