SkyTEM acquires GroundProbe’s Australian airborne activities

australia-time-domain-airborne-geophysicaSince 2006 SkyTEM ApS and GroundProbe Geophysics have worked successfully as partners to provide airborne geophysical survey services in Australia. SkyTEM is very pleased to announce it has recently acquired GroundProbe’s airborne geophysical activities and now operates as SkyTEM Australia Pty Ltd.

SkyTEM Australia is staffed with a team of four experienced and competent professionals, formerly GroundProbe employees, who have established SkyTEM as a highly recognized helicopter-borne EM provider. The company will be run as an independent business unit led by Steven Johnson as the General Manager.

SkyTEM technology has been employed by Australian federal and state government bodies for several strategic groundwater programs and by private industry for a range of survey applications, including mineral exploration, paleochannel and salinity mapping, geological mapping, and groundwater exploration and monitoring.

“We are very excited about this new opportunity to further expand our airborne activities in Australia”, says Dr. Flemming Effersø, CEO of SkyTEM Surveys in Denmark and Chairman of SkyTEM Australia Pty Ltd. “SkyTEM technology is regarded as the best in the market and we will now have more control of the entire process from sales to project execution and data processing. We have high expectations for the continued development of our geophysical survey business in Australia for mineral exploration, groundwater mapping and more.”
