Juggernaut press release on preliminary results of SkyTEM survey

Juggernaut Exploration has released preliminary results of a 759 line-kilometre high-resolution SkyTEM survey on their Empire property, 40 kilometres northeast of Terrace British Columbia. The survey has resulted in the discovery of a geophysically indicated, large buried highly conductive body known as the Big One Anomaly.

Mr. Dan Stuart, Director, President and CEO of Juggernaut states:
“The company and entire geologic team are very excited to have so many untested new mineralized bedrock discoveries that are drill ready on Empire. These discoveries are located in geologic elephant country and have excellent potential of being one drill hole away from a world class discovery. The Empire property is located in a key geologic terrane that certainly will tick the boxes of the Miners, has road access and is in close proximity to excellent infrastructure in Terrace British Columbia. We look forward to the 2018 drilling season with great anticipation.”

Dr. Stefan Kruse. P.Geo, Chief Consulting Geologist stated:
“Results of the geophysical surveys are extremely encouraging. We look forward to unlocking the full potential of the Empire property in 2018 with an inaugural drill program”

The SkyTEM technology during survey operation (not on Orion projects)

Orion has contracted SkyTEM, a leading airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey company headquartered in Denmark which offers state-of-the-art helicopter borne transient electromagnetic (TEM) and magnetic acquisition system, to fly an extensive (6,025 line km) TEM survey covering large portions of the Company’s Masiqhame and Disawell JV Project areas located in the Northern Cape.

The helicopter TEM survey will be flown with the highly innovative – SkyTEM312 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 frequency of 12.5 Hz. This breakthrough technology is aerodynamically superior to any TEM system on the market and as such, the data collected from the survey will contribute to the Company’s exploration success. The survey is scheduled to commence on 26 November 2017.

SkyTEM launches two new revolutionary helicopter TEM systems

Light-weight carbon fiber frame

SkyTEM continues to deliver new technological advancements to the airborne EM industry with a combination of superior survey economics and exceptional exploration capabilities. The systems are designed to minimize costs and maximize results and will assist water agencies, geotechnical engineers and mineral exploration companies face and solve 21st century challenges.

The newly engineered SkyTEM306 HP and SkyTEM312 HP (High Power) systems are mounted on a revolutionary rigid and lightweight carbon fiber frame.

Learn more about the new break-through technologies here:

The new systems are specifically designed to:

  • Reduce exploration costs by combining fast flying (up to 150 km/h) with light-weight frames
  • Provide quick data turnaround so you can make survey decisions in real-time during surveys
  • Explore deeper and at higher elevations
  • Significantly improved signal-to-noise ratio achieved with higher dipole moment light-weight systems
  • Improved characterization of geology and conductors

Please contact SkyTEM for further details about the benefits of the two new revolutionary helicopter TEM system.

Swedish Geological Survey continues to locate groundwater

The Swedish Minister of Trade and Industry, Mikael Damberg, inspected the SkyTEM survey for groundwater this week. The Swedish Geological Survey (SGU) has commissioned the survey, and the Project Manager Peter Dahlqvist expects that the data acquired will correspond to approximately 45,000 drillings and will provide valuable information about where to find new acquifers and hence drinking water.

Previous surveys over Öland and Gotland have proven valuable for finding groundwater that has become a scarce commodity in parts of Sweden.

SkyTEM mapping groundwater in Surat, India

SkyTEM is currently mapping aquifers for the Surat Municipal Corporation with the help of the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI). The aquifer mapping survey is carried out over river Tapi and will provide knowledge of the exact location of aquifer, its size, quantum of water it can store, recharge points and French Well.

SkyTEM survey for X-Terra Resources in Quebec

Survey for X-Terra in Quebec

X-Terra Resources has published a news release about the upcoming SkyTEM survey on its Veronneau Property in Quebec. SkyTEM Canada has been engaged to conduct a 1,225 line kilometre airborne survey utilizing the SkyTEM312 TDEM system.

The objective of the airborne survey is to provide a modern geophysical database from which X-Terra Resources will generate numerous exploration targets to be tested by a regional mapping and prospectin program planned for the summer of 2017, followed by diamond drilling in the latter half of 2017, if deemed necessary.

Michael Ferreira, X-Terra Resources President and CEO, commented:

We are very exicted to have SkyTEM complete this high resolution airborne geophysical survey. It will serve as an invaluable tool for X-Terra moving forward, especially where surface exposure is poor. Further it wil provide an excellent database from which to design an effective exploration programe […]

Update March 2017:

X-Terra Resources also wishes to report that preliminary data from its recently completed airborne geophysical survey has been received. Michel Chapdelaine, a director and member of the technical committee of the Board of Directors of X-Terra Resources commented, “The quality of the survey is impeccable and the first interpretations completed by MB Geosolutions are as well. The precision of the data will enable X-Terra Ressources to precisely target their exploration. In addition, the Veronneau showing is located on a ½ kilometre per 2 kilometres area where the MagEM signature is unique as it is very different compared with the rest of the property. We can see certain electromagnetic conductors seem to recut the principal structural grain”.

SkyTEM survey identifies minerals in Greenland for Alba Mineral Resources

Alba Minerals in Greenland

Alba Mineral Resources has published an RNS on the results of the SkyTEM electromagnetic-magnetic (EM-MAG) geophysical survey conducted in September 2016 on the Amitsoq graphite project in Greenland. The initial interpreted results are highly encouraging and provide numerous target areas for follow-up ground work, geophysics and drilling. These targets include graphite zones and extensions of the former graphite minat Amitsoq, nickel and platinum group metals (PGM) to the north of the former mine, as well as potential gold targets on the mainland to the south of Amitsoq island.

The highlights include the identification of several new faults and numerous anomalies, some associated with potential graphite horizons, as well as two shallow, moderate intensity EM anomalies associated with large ultramafic dyke known to contain magmatic sulphides of nickel, PGMs, gold and silver.

The SkyTEM304 system was selected as it affords greater depth penetration (up to 400 m) when compared to rival systems.

The next phase of exploration will involve further processing of the geophysical data followed by ground verification of targets and the planning of a drilling programme for later this year.

George Frangeskides, Executive Chairman of Alba Mineral Resources, commented:

The initial results from the airborne geophysical survey are very promising. We expected to find anomalies in the vicinity of the historic Amitsoq graphite mine, and this has been confirmed by the survey. What is most exciting is the discovery of numerous linear anomalies running in a general north-easterly direction away from the mine area. These are suggestive of the presence of a highly conductive unit that cancontinue laterally for up to 1300 metres at a time. The identification in particular of 11 conductor axes amounting in aggregate to 5.5 kilometres of strike provides us with significant priority targets for follow up on work.
