3D Geoelectrical Resistivity Mapping of Tourmaline-Rich Pegmatite in AngwanDoka, Nassarawa State, Northcentral Nigeria

O. A. Oyonga, E. Kudamnya, S. I. Ugar

3D geoelectrical resistivity survey was carried out using the Multiple Vertical Electrical Sounding (MVES) along profile lines to determine the extent of mineralized tourmaline-rich pegmatite within a mining site in AngwanDoka community in Kokona Local Government Area, Nassarawa State, Nigeria. A total of 61 out of 90 soundings within a grid area which covered 200m2 were selected for convenience of modeling. Resistivity data were modeled using a combination of manual curve matching, data inversion and iteration with IP2WIN software, and 3D data modeling using rockworks software. This integrated approach with a resulting 3D model revealed a major trend of the pegmatite in the NE-SW direction which is in line with the overall regional structural strike in the region. The method can therefore be applied extensively for other related subsurface resistivity investigations.
