Today we are seeing that the mining industry is focusing on deep exploration. Quantec Geoscience offers true 3D DCIP & MT (ORION 3D) acquisition through multi-directional set up. Generally conventional DCIP technologies collect data in two dimensions and invert it in 3D, which is not as accurate as ORION 3D multi-directional array data collection. The aim of this work is to show how ORION 3D technology measures three parameters for effective mapping of mineralization, alteration, structure and geology to depth (2 km) and obtaining high quality data from an environment in which data acquisition tasks and survey operations are challenging. Charcas historical case is summarized here to give an idea of some of the benefits of performing an ORION 3D survey at San Luis de Potosi mining district, Mexico.
