Usually, when conducting electrical prospecting, the electromagnetic field in the medium is excited in such a way that large area structures are well identified, therefore profile sections prevail in the results of the work. In contrast, any three-dimensional objects are identified with great difficulty. The greatest problems to be detected by electrical prospecting methods are caused by objects located at great depths, small in area or low contrast in resistivity. These objects can be - ore objects, kimberlite pipes and other objects that do not extend over long distances in all directions. To increase the sensitivity of electrical prospecting, a method was created that is little affected by the parameters of the base medium. This method very well reveals violations of horizontally layered structures. The technology has been called the vertical electric current sounding method (VECS). VECS allows you to identify objects that are not detected by other methods of electrical prospecting - low-contrast, small in area, located at great depths.
