Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Wireline logs and vertical seismic profile (VSP) data were acquired in two boreholes intersecting the Cu-Au New Afton porphyry deposit located near Kamloops, British Columbia. The wireline logs and VSP data are components of an integrated geophysical imaging and 3D geological modelling study that aims to improve knowledge of the role of magmatic hydrothermal processes and structural controls in concentrating metals in porphyry deposits. Log data provide physical rock properties for the propylitic, phyllic, and potassic alteration zones. Both propylitic and phyllic zones are characterized by a broad distribution of density and P-wave velocities whereas the feldspar-dominant potassic alteration zone has generally high velocities. The VSP survey was conducted with a distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) system that utilized fibre-optic cables cemented in two boreholes at the New Afton mine. Fibre-optic cables comprised standard and ConstellationTM fibres in both straight and helically-wound configurations for comparison purposes. Seismic sources consisted of fifty shot points each loaded with one kilogram of pentolite explosive placed in a 20 m deep shot hole. VSP data from both types of fibre show clear down going waves and reflections although signal-to-noise ratio is significantly higher on the ConstellationTM fibre-optic cable. A preliminary analysis of VSP data from one shot point shows reflections possibly associated with the potassic zone and the picrite unit located just below the bottom of the borehole.
