The usefulness of AGRS in geological mapping and mineral exploration depends on two factors: 1) the extent to which radioelement distribution relates to bedrock differences and how this distribution may be modified by mineralizing processes; and 2) the extent to which bedrock radioelement content is reflected in surficial materials that can be spatially related to bedrock sources.

Another basic interest for the characterization of the water pathways through the rock matrix and the quantifixation of their trajectories through the main rock-forming minerals is based on the potential fluid-solid reactions that can be developed in the rock; those reactions are responsible for radioelement retention by the rock-matrix, because a phenomenon developed on the interface between some rock-forming mineral surfaces and water conductive fissures.
