چکیده
This study uses remote sensing image-processing to enhance recognition of areas with mineral abundance halo, which can be associated with porphyry mineralisation of the Urumieh-Dokhtar Magmatic Belt (UDMB) in western Yazd. Granitoid intrusions of Oligocene-Miocene age in UDMB hosts the most important Porphyry Copper Deposits (PCDs) of Iran such as Darezereshk and Aliabad PCDs. Diagnostic spectral absorption features of six shortwave infrared (SWIR) and three visible and near-infrared (VNIR) bands of the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) data were applied to determine the alteration minerals and their abundance. In this research reflectance data from various representative alteration types throughout the study area were measured by the FieldSpec-3 spectroradiometer and applied for mapping minerals. Different remote sensing analytical techniques, including the Principal Component Analysis (PCA), band ratio, relative absorption band depth, and MTMF, were applied to enhance mapping the alteration minerals. Field works including rock sampling, petrography and field spectroradiometer followed up the alteration mapping. Field observation implies that, the vein-type mineralisation above the cupola of this porphyry system is preserved in the western part, although it was eroded in the eastern area. Consequently, PCDs potential is expected to be higher in the western area.
