Oct 01, 2018 The Republic of Liberia is located in West Africa, bordered by Sierra Leone, Guinea, C te dIvoire and to the south-west by the Atlantic Ocean .With a land area of about 111,000 km 2 and a population of nearly 4.1 million, much of Liberia is sparsely populated, comprising rolling plateaux and low mountains away from a narrow flat coastal plain.
Aug 05, 2013 Gold, particularly, has often not moved far, so a minor alluvial gold deposit can result in a major underground gold mine as in Australias Kalgoorlie or Bendigo gold rushes. In other places, most of the gold was in the alluvial deposits as in the KlondikeAlaska Gold Rush and the California gold rushes of the 19th century.

These zones are thus potential areas of gold mineralization in granite and greenstone terranes. We consider several techniques for the detection and enhancement of clay anomalies in TM imagery and use them to the detect hydrothermal alteration zones in a TM image of the Murchison greenstone belt, Northern Transvaal, South Africa.
Platinum mining in South Africa. In South Africa, the discovery of the first platinum nuggets dates back to 1924. The geologist Hans Merenskys follow-up work resulted in the discovery of two deposits, each around 100km in length, which became known as the Bushveld Igneous Complex.
