GEOPHYSICS SURVEYING

 MINING EXPLORATION

Magnetics are the most commonly used geophysical method for gold, diamond, platinum group metals and base metal exploration.

Select any type of gold project, (quartz vein, sulphide-hosted, shear zone, alluvial or placer) and you will see magnetic reconnaissance maps or detailed maps for drilling. In gold exploration, magnetics helps in direct detection of associated mineralization and for mapping large- and local-scale structure (faults, dykes, and shear zones). In diamond exploration, the magnetic technique helps assess kimberlites as shown by the example of leading junior exploration groups.

 EASY-TO-USE MAPPING TOOLS FOR GEOLOGISTS

Re-allocation of resources in exploration is one of the significant trends of the last five years. Now, geologists – especially in junior exploration groups – are being called upon to address new challenges, including directing field crews or possibly, performing detail-level, ground-based geophysical surveys.

Performing ground magnetic surveys has never been easier. Easy-to-use instrumentation plus stream-lined software make acquisition and interpretation of magnetic data more effective than in years past.

For your next project, put our leading systems to work, and improve your prospects for success using magnetics – the data that both major and junior exploration groups rely on for performing reconnaissance exploration and making drilling decisions.

 POWERFUL CAPABILITIES FOR GEOPHYSICISTS

Geophysicists continue to rely on magnetometers for acquiring low noise, high sensitivity results to assist in exploration.

Some of the key benefits for geophysical professionals, include reduction of surveying times through GPS-based data acquisition and acquisition of high quality data for input into advanced software processing and modeling packages. In addition, it offers the highest specifications for reliability and robustness today.
