Summary

Wadi-sediment samples were collected from 450 sites in a 580-km2 area (sample density 1.5 per km2) as part of an exploration program designed to assess the mineral potential of the Farah Garan - Kutam mineral belt and to evaluate mineralization at the Farah Garan ancient working (DGMR Project 3.03.10). Demagnetized panned-concentrate and sieved minus-80-mesh fractions were prepared from each bulk sample of approximately 5 kg. The fractions were analyzed for silver, arsenic, copper, lead, and zinc by atomic-absorption methods and for gold by an atomic-absorption graphite-furnace method. The analytical results for the panned-concentrate samples delineate 21 anomalies, and the results for the minus-80-mesh samples delineate 24. Of the [...]
