lmproving geological and geophysical evaluation should serve to reduce the early-stage risk assessment and thereby contribute to exploration expenditure stimulation. The limitations of present-day methods are reviewed, particularly as to anomaly causes, depth penetration and quantitative physical interpretative abilities. Some of the problems now under study are discussed. Future developments expected include t he treatment of quantitized geologie and geophysical data, as well as continuing attempts toward computerized interpretation
