    CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Surficial lag is widespread in many deeply weathered terrains in arid and semi-arid environments. This lag generally consists of the most chemically and physically resistant components of the regolith and is typically dominated by quartz, quartz-rich lithologies and ferruginised materials. Phyto-exploration in arid subtropical, arid mediterranean and tropical savanna environments: Biogeochemical mechanisms and implications for mineral exploration Nathan Reid June A thesis submitted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy of School of Chemical Engineering School of Earth & Environmental Sciences (Geology and Geophysics).

      He is a widely-published and international authority on weathering, regolith geology and geochemical exploration. He has pioneered aspects of the next frontier in geochemical exploration in deeply weathered terrains, including the role of biota in regolith forming processes, and has worked on . Based on the results, the recommended soil sampling depth for detecting surficial geochemical anomalies in this and similar semi-arid and thickly covered area is 2–3 m. Furthermore, Hg, Sb, As, Cu, Pb, Zn, Mn and Bi appear to be important indicators for geochemical exploration of Pb-Zn deposits.

    The regolith attains a maximum total thickness of ~75 m, with an in-situ deeply weathered regolith divided, from base to top, into: (1) lower ferruginous saprolite; (2) upper sandy kaolinitic. Depths (>5 m) of transported or weathered material covering mineralized bedrock often restricts geochemical exploration in deeply weathered environments (Anand et al. ). An important method for discovering hidden ore bodies is sampling regolith material in search of anomalous metal concentrations (Anand et al. ).

In parts of the deeply weathered and semi-arid environments of the Cobar area (NSW, Australia), detection of mineralisation using conventional soil sampling and total metal analysis is impeded.

This is due to the intense leaching of trace elements within the weathered profile, discontinuous coverage of transported materials and the existence of.

In addition, the Institute of Geophysical and Geochemical Exploration laboratory in China has supplied data for four sequential selective leaches: water-extractable, adsorbed, organic-bound and iron- and manganese-bound.
