Abstract: In recent years, there has been a growing awareness that a better understanding of physical property information is required in mineral exploration. As a consequence, there has been a strong push to collect more data and to use these data more intelligently. There are a multiplicity of reasons behind this impetus: geophysicists want more information about physical property data to enable better surveys to be planned and better interpretations to come from the data acquired and geologists want physical properties to provide addition information about the geology that might allow them to see variations in rocks that are not easy to see using traditional or more expensive methods (hand specimen examination, thin sections, lithogeochemistry, assays, etc.). If a hole is drilled on a geophysical target, then a physical property measurement of the core or the rocks surrounding the core can confirm if the target was intercepted and provides data that can be used to model the target response.
