Assessment of depth to Lead-Zinc deposit in parts of Southern Benue Trough using integrated geophysical methods

This study employed the techniques of electrical resistivity, induced polarization and aeromagnetic methods to investigate and quantify lead-zinc ore deposits. The electrical methods of geophysical exploration were employed to measure thickness of overburden as well as width of the ore across the study area. IP method was used to investigate dissemination of lead-zinc sulphides. Aeromagnetic data over the area was...

Groundwater potential and aquifer protective capacity at Nkwelle-Ezunaka Farm Estate, Southeastern Nigeria

Vertical electrical resistivity soundings (VES) were carried out at Nkwelle-Ezunaka, Southeastern Nigeria to investigate the groundwater potential and aquifer protective capacity of the area. A total of ten soundings were carried out using ABEM Terameter SAS 1000. The VES data collected were interpreted using INTERPEX software and the results presented in terms of resistivity, thickness, depth and lithology. The...
