Linex Exploration Expertise

Linex specialise in detailed data collection (field mapping, drill core) to enable accurate and detailed geological reconstructions. Used for resource delineation and target generation. Linex integrates geophysical, geochemical and geological data and links the macro with the micro to build a complete story.  Further details.

Rebuilding central Victoria

Using high resolution turbidite stratigraphic mapping, Linex correlate between drill holes to determine fault offsets and constrain fold geometry.

For example, the location and offset of the faults at Fosterville have been established (from Perseverance Ltd annual report, 2004)
