Description
Abstract [en]

The Kristineberg mining area is located in the western part of the Skellefte Ore District, one of the most important mining districts in Europe. As a part of a 4D geologic modeling project, two new reflection seismic profiles were acquired. Although the structural geology is complex, the processed seismic data reveal a series of steeply dipping to sub-horizontal reflections, some of which reach the surface and allow correlation with surface geology. Reflection modeling was carried out to obtain the 3D orientation of the main reflections and to provide insight into the possible contribution of out-of-the-plane reflections. The new reflection seismic profiles have improved our understanding of shallow geological structures in the area and in conjunction with recently acquired potential field data, magnetotelluric data and geological observations will help to refine previous 3D geologic modeling interpretations that were aimed at larger scale structures.
