The article shows the possibility of using Landsat 7 ETM + multi-zone space imagery and brightness characteristics to predict platinum mineralization in new promising areas. Analysis of the values of the gravitational field showed that in the area under study, platinum mineralization is concentrated in a fairly narrow range of values, which makes it possible to use this data as a search feature.
The main conclusions have been formulated and the possibilities of the Landsat 7 ETM + multi-zone space survey to forecast platinum mineralization in new promising areas have been clearly demonstrated. The conducted studies prove the efficiency of the integration of remote (space and geophysical) to improve the approach to prospecting for platinum-copper-nickel mineralization.
