Kavango Resources plc, Botswana: SkyTEM makes a huge difference

Chief Geologist Mike Moles from Kavango Resources states:

In the past, the main problem with the lower frequency surveys was noise. This was mostly due to the vibrations caused by the helicopter, and particularly that associated with wind-shear. After the disappointing depth penetration of the VTEM system, we learnt that the Danish company SkyTEM were claiming to have solved the noise issues with a 12.5 Hz frequency system. Further enquiries and endorsements by companies that had used the system convinced Kavango to see if this new system would be available for our Phase 2 survey.

 The added depth penetration of the SkyTEM system has made a huge difference to what we can “see” below the surface. It is like being able to see the whole body rather than just the top of its head.”

A SkyTEM312 HP survey to begin for Kavango Resources in Botswana

The survey will be flown with SkyTEM’s innovative new generation 312 HP (High Power) technology for deep exploration. This High Power system, with a peak moment up to 1,000,000 NIA, is optimized to provide an exceptional depth of investigation due to the high moment (HM) mode with high current and low base frequency of 12.5 Hz. This system has only been on the market since 2017 and therefore, represents a major advance in AEM systems.

Michael Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Kavango, commented:

“We are pleased to be able to announce the start of Phase 2 of the AEM Survey. SkyTEM’s new High Power system will allow us to investigate the potential for Cu-Ni-PGE rich sulphide orebodies at much deeper levels and with greater resolution than older systems”.

SkyTEM airborne EM survey completed for Orion Minerals

A 148 km2 high-power SkyTEM airborne EM survey completed on the near-mine target area at Orion Minerals Prieska Zinc-Copper Project

The survey was flown with the highly innovative SkyTEM312 HP (high-power) technology for deep target imaging. This high-power system, with a peak moment up to 1,000,000 NIA, is optimised to provide exceptional depth of investigation, due to the high moment mode with high current and low base frequency of 12.5 Hz.

SkyTEM survey for Orion Minerals in Northern Cape

Orion Minerals has announced the commencement of a SkyTEM airborne EM survey at Prieska Project designed to explore for new zinc-copper deposits on Orion’s tenements within the highly prospective Prieska Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Camp to identify new drilling targets.

Orion has contracted SkyTEM, a leading AEM survey company headquartered in Denmark which offers a state-of-the-art helicopter-borne transient electromagnetic TEM and magnetic acquisition system, to fly the 822 line-km TEM survey. The survey will be flown with the highly innovative SkytEM 312 HP (high power) technology for deep target imaging.  This high-power system, with a peak moment up to 1,000,000 NIA, is optimised to provide an exceptional depth of investigation due to the high moment mode with high current and low base frequence of 12.5 Hz.

SkyTEM Survey for Cazaly Resources in Namibia

 

Cazaly Resources Limited has now received and processed data from an airborne electromagnetic survey (EM) conducted over the Kaoko Kobalt Project in Namibia.

The airborne survey was conducted over five separate blocks where prevous work highlighted the potential for strate bound cobalt/copper mineralisation.

The survey results successfully highlighted discrete conductive zones in a number of areas highlighting potential for sediment-hosted mineralisation and possible feeder zones in structurally complex areas.
