Integrating 3D photogeology with aeromagnetic data in mineral exploration

3D photogeology combined with geophysical data can be used to map lithostratigraphic units, faults and dykes in three dimensions defining the architecture of the sedimentary basin that plays an important role in the distribution of mineralization.
