Reflection seismic methods are a key technology which are able to investigate and characterize mineral deposits prior to drilling or mining. However, these deposits are often embedded in an hard-rock environment, causing difficulties such as strong scattering, steep and various dips of the imaging targets, a low signal to noise ratio of the recorded data and an irregular distribution of sources and receivers in land seismic acquisitions. We will show how we handle these challenges and how our focusing pre-stack depth imaging methods can produce good and reliable structural images of the target areas in such conditions.
