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.

SkyTEM Africa seminar

The recent SkyTEM Africa Seminar, hosted by our Regional Sales Manager, Christina Hutchinson, was once again thé event to attend. This took place at The Pivot Conference Centre, Southern Sun Montecasino Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa on September 13, 2018.

The agenda: a presentation on a truly innovative new generation SkyTEM312 high power electromagnetic system launched in 2017 and a case study from the Areachap belt in South Africa presented by SkyTEM’s CEO, Dr Flemming Effersø, followed by a presentation titled “SkyTEM – Burning the candle at both ends” presented by SkyTEM’s guest speaker, Mr Cas Lotter, Managing Director at Spectral Geophysics.

Namibia Critical Metals identifies multiple targets from SkyTEM EM Survey

Namibia Critical Metals has issued a press release regarding the identification of multiple targets from SkyTEM EM survey over Kunene Cobalt-Copper Project.

  • SkyTEM airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey covering 4,200 line kilometers has been completed.
  • Preliminary data shows prolific number of conductors in a variety of geological settings.
  • Priority target areas identified along 20 kilometers of interpreted DOF extension; along 15 kilometers of the Okanihova lineament; and as isolated targets at Okanihova East and Olulilwa Southwest.
  • Evalution of statebound vanadium target with coincident EM.
  • First phase drill program will comprise 2,000 m diamond and 2,000 m reverse circulation drilling.

SkyTEM survey for Ni-Cu sulphide anomalies for Orion Minerals in South Africa

Orion Minerals in South Africa announces the commencement of regional exploration in the Areachap Belt, Northern Cape, South Africa.

  • 19 SkyTEM anomalies selected for initial follow-up
  • 17 anomalies coinciding with a paleo-seafloor setting selected to be tested as volcanogenic massive sulphide targets
  • 2 anomalies are associated with known Ni-Cu sulphide mineralisation. Regional target generation is ongoing, evaluating the remaining SkyTEM data over the Jacomynspan Complex
  • Geological mapping and ground EM surveys to define drill targets on the SkyTEM anomalies commenced mid-May 2018

Orion’s Managing Director and CEO, Errol Smart, commented:

“Given the significant number of new anomalies generated by Orion’s initial helicopter-borne Electro Magnetic (SkyTEM) survey over our regional landholdings in the highly-prospective yet underexplored Areachap Belt, in our view, the use of modern exploration tools has significantly enhanced the probability of exploration success. We look forward to drill testing multiple targets in coming months with the first drill holes scheduled to commence during June 2018.”
