Quick Reference

A method for finding geochemical anomalies, which uses geochemical features of the gases trapped in soil pore space. The method can be used only to find ore minerals which, on weathering or as a result of their radioactive decay, liberate gases which can readily be analysed (e.g. radon, released by the decay of uranium).
