AbstractDuring the past two decades, the magnetotelluric (MT) method has been become an important tool in the exploration geophysics world. It is a versatile and powerful tool that allow us to obtain images of the ground that represent the distribution of resistivities. MT sounding is specially efficient to determinate geological structures such as diapirs, faults, dikes, etc. In mining, it is broadly used to find mineralization deposits and to estimate the mining potential of an area. Australia is internationally known for its natural resources, specially Western Australia (WA), where several large deposits can be found, and it is in constant production and exploration. However, there are still places that need to be further explored. Although, being located in a largely explored area (some of the largest deposits in Australia), the Byro Sub-basin lacks proper research of its potential. MT sounding is probably one of the most suitable methods of exploration for this area, providing that it is a fast, cheap and reliable, and it is capable of determining, with a small error, location and in some cases volume of the ores.
