Gravity measurements useful in the preliminary evaluation of the Nimiuktuk barite deposit, Alaska.

January 1, 1982

Measurements taken in 1979 are used to assess the Nimiuktuk deposit; combined models suggest that the orebody contains a total mass of >1.5M metric tons of high-grade barite. The anomaly associated with Nimiuktuk suggests that gravity exploration could locate other massive deposits.-after Authors
