Magnetization vector 3D inversions of airborne magnetic data flown over Grib kimberlite pipe
This study is describing mapping of Grib kimberlite pipe in Arhangelsk region, Russia using full magnetization vector parameters extracted from airborne magnetic data by means of 3D inversion. The inversion results were used to calculate corrected magnetic susceptibility, which is compared with the results of classical 3D magnetic susceptibility inversion. The corrected magnetic susceptibility allows to map Grib kimberlite pipe more efficiently. The full magnetization vector inversion was also supported by inversion of magnetic field on the basis of vector scanning with use of regularization via elastic net method for evaluation of Magnetic susceptibility and remanent magnetization. The final results are provided as case study and the described methodology can be further used for advanced kimberlite exploration.
