Methodological and technical aspects of gamma-spectrometry using Geoscan 401 Gamma UAV system

Gamma spectrometry (GS) has become one of the most important methods to address ore mapping and prospecting problems. GS is usually implemented in ground and aerial versions. In the first case, the area survey is performed over a long time, but it allows accumulating a larger number of pulses per point to reliably determine the specific activities (and concentrations) of uranium, thorium, potassium.

Given the pandemic environment, not every subsoil user is ready to organize large-scale on-the-ground geophysical works. This is due to both the uncertainty in the future cost of resources and the risk of disruption due to COVID-19. At the same time, we would like to cover large areas with surveys, so as to obtain the data and plan the works for the next field season. One solution is to apply geophysical survey methods using UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

Aerial photography obtained via the UAVs rapidly replaces conventional geological exploration on foot. This is a convenient way allowing to obtain significantly more data in less time.

The UAVs can be widely used during the mining operations. The drones are used to collect data for mineral output calculation and preparation of the corresponding aerial maps, mining management under conditions when hand labor is replaced by machinery within the framework of the hazardous and monotonous operations.

High-precision magnetic survey with UAV for the archaeological barrows at Novaya Kurya monument in Western Siberia

The paper presents the results of high-precision magnetic surveys by a quantum magnetometer using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The object of research was an area of 10 hectares at the archaeological site of Novaya Kurya in Western Siberia. Magnetic anomalies caused by ancient mounds with amplitude of up to 5 - 10 nT were revealed. The received information makes it possible to plan a strategy for archaeological study of this monument at a qualitatively different level. Same technology can be applied at any other archeological site.
