  • Van Schoor, Abraham M; Mare, LP; Fourie, CJS (2009-09)
    Physical properties of rock samples from exploration or mining sites are often needed to assist in the planning of geophysical surveys or in the interpretation of geophysical results. For example, the output from a physical ...
  • Van Schoor, Abraham M (Elsevier Science BV, 2002-07)
    Sinkholes in dolomitic areas are notoriously difficult geophysical targets, and selecting an appropriate geophysical solution is not straightforward. Electrical resistivity imaging or tomography (RESTOM) is well suited to ...
  • Van Schoor, Abraham M (Struik Publishers, 2015-01)
    This chapter includes a collection of additional case study examples relating to some of the most pertinent coal problems described in this book. Where possible, local coal examples were selected for inclusion, but otherwise ...
  • Van Schoor, Abraham M; Du Pisani, P; Vogt, D (Acad Science South Africa, 2006-07)
    The economic horizons of the two major precious metal ore deposits of South Africa, the Bushveld Complex (platinum) and the Witwatersrand Basin (gold), exhibit remarkable lateral continuity on a regional scale. Consequently, ...
  • Van Schoor, Abraham M; Binley, A (European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), 2009-12)
    The applicability of tunnel-to-tunnel electrical resistance tomography (ERT) for imaging disruptive geological structures ahead of mining, in an igneous platinum mining environment is assessed. The geophysical targets of ...
  • Vogt, D; Van Schoor, Abraham M (SAGA (South African Geophysical Association), 2013-10)
    Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is often a good tool for detecting near surface structure, as it is cheap, fast and has high resolution. At lower frequencies, it is an excellent tool for detecting voids such as sinkholes, ...
  • Vogt, D; Brink, VZ; Donovan, S; Ferreira, G; Haarhoff, J; Harper, G; Stewart, R; Van Schoor, Abraham M (CSIR, 2008-11)
    Mining is very important to South Africa, contributing 7% of GDP directly, and 15% indirectly and employing more than 450 000 people. With the world’s largest resources of gold, platinum and ferrochrome, and major coal ...
  • Van Schoor, Abraham M; Colvin, C (2009-09)
    In this paper, the application of ground penetrating radar (GPR) for the mapping of near surface tree roots is demonstrated. GPR enables tree roots to be mapped in a non-destructive and cost-effective manner and is therefore ...
