Abstract:

An airborne electrical resistivity survey was flown near Fairbanks, Alaska. One of the objectives of the survey was to evaluate the potential of airborne VLF resistivity mapping to distinguish between rock types. The impetus for the study was the requirement by the U.S. Army Engineer District, Alaska, for a rock quarry in connection with the Chena River Lakes Project. The general area is near the southern limit of the rolling Yukon-Tanana Uplands. The bedrock consists of both the common Birch Creek schist and local intrusive igneous rocks.
