The experience of studying porphyry systems of Kazakhstan by geophysical methods.

The analysis of the results of surveys carried out by Helios in Kazakhstan in 2018 and 2020 in order to search for copper-porphyry systems is presented. At the search stage, in order to optimize drilling operations, the following tasks are solved: identification of new ore bodies and delineation of already known ore occurrences; identification of the distribution of mineralization; identification of the deep root zone of copper-porphyry mineralization; identification of blind ore bodies that do not have access to the day surface; identification of the zone of oxidized ores and contacts of zones of oxidized and sulfide mineralization. These tasks are successfully solved using the technology of electromagnetic sounding and induced polarization (EMS-IP) in combination with unmanned geophysical technologies. As a result of the constructed three-dimensional geoelectric model, porphyry-type objects are distinguished by anomalies of conductivity and polarizability. While three-dimensional modeling of UAV-magnetometry data with the restoration of the magnetization vector makes it possible to localize sulfide bodies with a high iron content.
