SkyTEM is delighted to announce that Mandy Long has been promoted to General Manager of SkyTEM Canada Inc as of May 18, 2020. Mandy brings over 15 years of progressive experience in airborne geophysics and has a strong understanding of exploration challenges and solutions in the mineral, water and engineering sectors. We are excited to have Mandy apply her extensive managerial experience to help grow our business and look forward to her building on the strong team and foundation we have established in North America.
SkyTEM is currently searching for underground aquifers in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Water resources are under pressure in the area, and the SkyTEM aerial technology is much more efficient than drilling holes. The technology can produce 3D maps down to 300 metres.

Per Gisselø, Head of Operations at SkyTEM, will present “Smart Exploration and SkyTEM validation survey at Blötberget Mine Site in Sweden”
Helicopter time-domain electromagnetics can be of substantial value to pre-engineering and construction projects. This White Paper presents several real world examples of how and where SkyTEM data was used to quickly and economically create or revise geological models and reduce risk on geotechnical engineering projects.

“SkyTEM in Smart Exploration. Improvement of Depth of Investigation of the Airborne EM system”
25-27 November 2019

This case study illustrates the use of an exploration method that leverages modern exploration techniques for deep-seated VMS
and Ni-Cu deposits in a 978 km2 survey area in the highly prospective Areachap Belt, South Africa.
The exploration method comprises the use of a high power helicopter TEM (“HTEM”) system, a large fixed loop TEM
(“FLTEM”) ground system and drilling that are employed in a staged process to keep down risks and costs and more
importantly to optimize the chances of discovering viable economic mineral resources.
Based on the HTEM survey 19 high priority VMS targets were detected for ground follow up with FLTEM. The FLTEM data
confirmed all of these targets, and 2D plate modelling refined the parameter for optimal drilling of the targets. The first result
of the drilling campaign led to the discovery of a significant Ni-Cu deposit.
The prospect of this case study is that the employed method may be useful for certain types of mineral exploration. Provided
that the electrical conductivity contrast between the mineralisation and the host rock is sufficient then the use of
HTEM and FLTEM is a viable choice. The staged exploration process ensures that potential resources are detected and that risks and costs at each step are kept down.
