Health Safety Environment and Community (HSEC)


Recently SkyTEM Surveys flew a survey for BHP Billiton in Saskatchewan. The SkyTEM data will enable BHP Billiton to better understand and protect aquifers in the area of the survey as well as aid in the selection of an appropriate site for placement of mine tailings. Preliminary data was delivered before the SkyTEM crew left the site. The survey operations were carried out successfully under the newly developed SkyTEM HSEC management system.

We are very proud to have developed and implemented a Health Safety Environment and Community (HSEC) management system that complies with the requirements set by the most demanding international companies. It is a challenge to reach this high level but we are confident our clients recognize and appreciate our focus on health and safety. We look forward to working with all our clients to deliver high quality geophysical data with high regard to health and safety issues.

Results from SkyTEM survey for North American Nickel

airborne survey for nickelNorth American Nickel provides a comparison between 2011 SkyTEM and 1995 GeoTEM geophysical survey over Maniitsoq, Greenland project, in a recent press release.

The SkyTEM geophysical system is detecting conductors not seen before and is also resolving previously known EM anomalies in much greater detail. These results have met or exceeded North American Nickel’s expectations and firmly establish that the new exploration technology available today is able to identify new, previously unrecognized targets, North American Nickels states.

Monster Mining completes SkyTEM exploration programs

monster-miningMonster Mining Corp. has completed its 2011 Keno-Lightning and McKay Hill exploration programs and has received the results and interpretation of the airborne geophysical program conducted in June this year. SkyTEM Surveys conducted a 1920 line kilometre TDEM survey. The SkyTEM system, which is capable of producing high resolution, highly accurate data from surface to depths of up to 300 m, is well-suited to identifying steeply dipping to vertical conductors and resolving minor differences in lithological conductivity. The survey was designed to generate exploration targets outside of the known occurrences and assist in structural interpretations of the geology and mineralization on Keno-Lightning.

SkyTEM Surveys has completed project in Maniitsoq, Greenland


SkyTEM Surveys has completed a project in Maniitsoq, Greenland for North Americal Nickel Inc.

The skyTEM system arrived in Maniitsoq on September 15, flying commenced on September 17  and the survey was completed on October 6. In all, a total of 2,217 line-kilometers of electromagnetic and magnetic surveying was done over two flight blocks.

Examination of the preliminary data indicates it is of good quality and that the helicopter was able to hug the terrain despite the rugged topography. A final, levelled dataset and initial interpretation is expected from SkyTEM within 7 to 8 weeks.
