This article presents an application for the detection of mineral distributions, by means of detection with non-invasive technique. Taking into account that an anomaly refers to the response given by the physical field in the area of exploratory interest or resource development. This can mean the discovery of a geological formation suitable for mineral exploration in the place compatible with the presence of minerals. Considering that with the geophysical techniques, it is sought to identify and observe the geological distributions that are in the land, using parameters of electrical conductivity, which can be obtained by means of geoelectrical methods such as resistivity and polarization induced with the chargeability. The objective is the preparation of images of the electrical impedance distribution of the subsoil from measurements taken from the surface, focusing on the orientation of minerals at a certain depth. The results allow the definition of the most significant anomalous zones, that is to say, areas of variation where porphyry copper related sulphides can be located, according to resistivity and chargeability measurements.
