The western part of the island of Milos, Greece has undergone widespread, intense alteration associated with a range of mineralization, including seafloor Mn-Fe-Ba, sub seafloor Pb-Zn-Ag, and epithermal Au-Ag. The surrounding country rocks are a mixt... Read More

On the feasibility of imaging carbonatite-hosted rare earth element deposits using remote sensing (2016)
Journal Article
Ferrier, G., Black, M., Broom-Fendley, S., Gibson, S. A., Neave, D. A., Riley, T. R., & Wall, F. (2016). On the feasibility of imaging carbonatite-hosted rare earth element deposits using remote sensing. Economic Geology, 111(3), (641-665). doi:10.2113/econgeo.111.3.641. ISSN 0361-0128

Rare earth elements (REEs) generate characteristic absorption features in visible to shortwave infrared (VNIR-SWIR) reflectance spectra. Neodymium (Nd) has among the most prominent absorption features of the REEs and thus represents a key pathfinder... Read More
