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.”

SkyTEM Canada expands to deliver exceptional exploration services

Toronto, May 23, 2018

SkyTEM Canada Inc, a global provider of airborne geophysical survey services has expanded their Canadian operations by establishing data processing and operations centres in Ontario and Quebec.

SkyTEM CEO Dr. Flemming Effersø believes the expansion is perfectly aligned with the company’s mission to deliver high-quality subsurface map products from a range of advanced airborne geophysical SkyTEM systems.  “Our continued investments in R&D are paying off and we are experiencing tremendous growth in North America. Our technology is engineered to acquire highly accurate data as deep as any on the market and combined with our aerodynamic fast flying capabilities we deliver great economics.  The mineral exploration sector sees tremendous value in what we have to offer.  We provide great service,” Effersø continued, “and we are proud of our efforts and the growing application of our technology around the world. Since 2010 SkyTEM has established operations in strategic centres around the world and this expansion of our operations, data processing and project management capabilities is welcome news to the Canadian exploration market.”

SkyTEM’s new data processing centre in Toronto is managed by Douglas Garrie, P.Geo. B.Sc.  Doug has over 25 years’ global experience managing mineral exploration projects and data deliverables.  Most recently Doug served as Manager Geophysical Services at CGG (formerly Fugro).  Prior to this role he managed data processing at Aeroquest.

“I could not be more excited about having Doug on the team” said Effersø, “ his knowledge of what the mineral exploration industry needs in combination with his consulting and customer support skills creates value for our customers and their ability to get the most from our data.”

Operations and logistics of SkyTEM Canada will be managed by partners Devbrio Geophysics headquartered in eastern Quebec.  Jean-Christophe Ricard, President of Devbrio, and his team of field managers and technicians have over 10 years of global experience managing airborne survey logistics and operating SkyTEM systems, particularly in North America. Dr. Effersø stated “Efficient field operations are imperative to mitigating standby situations and to delivering extraordinary customer service.  The experience and professionalism of Devbrio staff have played a significant role in the growth of our Canadian operations”

Reg Whitten, President of InterPlan Inc and consultant on a 21,000 line kilometre survey in BC said “…. I can say that SkyTEM maintained excellent communication regarding field logistics. They were responsive to changes in flight planning to recognize First Nation community and traditional-use activities by implementing temporary no-fly zones. They were very cooperative in finding solutions and communicating changes to allow contingency plans to be quickly developed. This resulted in optimal survey coverage and timely data acquisition. “

SkyTEM survey in Canada

SkyTEM survey for Namibia Rare Earths Inc.

Kunene Co-Cu Project Area showing planned airborne surey area and geochemical anomalies for re-analysed soil samples from closed spaced sampling grid

Namibia Rare Earths Inc. has announced in a press release that it has contracted SkyTEM Surveys ApS to carry out a detailed airborne electromagnetic (EM) and magnetic survey covering all the previously identified cobalt targets on its Kunene Cobalt-Copper Project in Northern Namibia. The survey will cover over 600 km2 and comprises 3,700 line kilometers to be flown with a helicopter-borne time-domain electromagnetic system at a flight line spacing of 200 m. The objectives of the survey are to detect conductive horizons and sulphide accumulations associated with cobalt-copper mineralization to depths of 300-400 meters, and to assist with geological mapping and structural interpretations.

The powerful SkyTEM312 system is currently being mobilized from Denmark, and the survey is scheduled to be completed by June 30. It will be installed on an Astar 350 B3 helicopter operated by Savannah Helicopters, who is an experienced provider of airborne geophysical services.

Don Burton, President of Namibia Rare Earths Inc., stated: “Our SkyTEM survey will be the first airborne EM survey over this prospective area. Sediment-hosted cobalt-copper deposits should respond well to electromagnetic methods. Based on what the surface geochemistry is showing us, the SkyTEM survey will undoubtedly deliver multiple targets for the budgeted drilling campaign.”

USGS to map groundwater in Arizona with SkyTEM

Residents and visitors of the Grand Canyon West and Truxton/Peach Springs areas may see a low-flying helicopter towing a large hoop hanging from a cable starting on or around March 10, 2018, and lasting approximately one to two weeks. The low-flying helicopter will collect and record geophysical measurements for scientific research conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey.

SkyTEM groundwater survey for the USGS near Grand Canyon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is studying the groundwater resources of the western Hualapai Reservation and Truxton Basin in northwest Arizona.  The study area is adjacent to the Grand Canyon, where surveying will occur above the south canyon rim on the tablelands of the Hualapai Plateau and in the Truxton Basin near Peach Springs.  The airborne geophysical data, to be acquired by SkyTEM Surveys, are intended for rigorous inversion and will be used to develop a detailed hydrostratigraphic framework to support USGS groundwater modeling efforts and local water-resource management in this arid desert region.
