In recent years, prospecting in coverage areas has become an important topic in China due to the strong demand for energy and mineral resources, and there is an urgent need for new targeted methods and technologies of prospecting. This study put forward a technology system for the collaborative and rapid prospecting of copper-nickel deposits in coverage areas that combines airborne-ground-borehole prospecting methods and technologies. Meanwhile, this study established the framework and description of the collaborative, rapid, and effective exploration technology system. Taking the terrain and geology of coverage areas, as well as the distribution characteristics of deep mineral resources in the area as preconditions, this technology system mainly uses the methods of aero geophysics combined with ground and borehole geophysical exploration and focuses on big data fusion, weak information extraction, and geophysical-geological modeling methods. Meanwhile, it takes geological structure and metallogenic theory as guidance. This technical system has been verified in the exploration of the concealed magmatic copper-nickel deposit in the Qixin area, Ruoqiang County, Xinjiang, achieving positive results.
