Abstract

The physical properties of non-porous basement rocks are directly related to the mineralogy of those rocks. The MineralMapper3D software package originally developed by Nick Williams at the Predictive Mineral Discovery Cooperative Research Centre (pmd*CRC), Geoscience Australia, uses the physical properties of minerals to provide bounds on estimates of the abundance of specified minerals in non-porous basement rocks. This approach is applicable to both estimates of density and magnetic susceptibility derived from 3D inversions of gravity and magnetic data as well as physical measurements on specimens or down-hole derived physical properties. This users guide descibes the history, installation and operation of the software package.
