Polymetal is conducting an airborne geophysical survey at the Dukatskaya prospect in the Magadan region. This is necessary to obtain new data on the geological structure of the subsoil of the Dukat hub.

According to the press service of the Magadan branch of Polymetal UK JSC, it is planned to use in this project absolutely new technologies of airborne geophysical survey for Russia - audiomagnetotelluric sounding. A similar method is used in Australia and Ecuador. The technology will make it possible to find out if there is an opportunity to identify new ore zones, and possibly ore fields, in such a studied area as Dukat.

Research will concern approximately 2/3 of the Dukat ore cluster. Route flights using this technology will allow geologists to obtain a geoelectric section and new information about the geological structure at depths of more than 500-600 meters. Based on the information received, it will be possible to construct in detail a geological model of the ore cluster almost to the depths of the basement.

Dukat silver ores do not have contrasting petrophysical properties, so it is much more difficult to search for them than copper, for example. Therefore, the choice was made in favor of audiomagnetotelluric sounding, which is used to measure the Earth's natural electromagnetic field. Geologists plan to complete work at the end of the year.
