Eskay Mining discovery following SkyTEM Survey

Eskay Mining Discovers Two New Large VMS Systems at its consolidated Eskay Project. The exploration has discovered two new potentially large volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) systems on its Consolidated Eskay precious metal project in the Golden Triangle, British Columbia, Canada.

Drilling over the next few weeks will target SkyTEM anomalies suspected to be new occurences and extensions of sulphide mineralization promixal to these targets.

Thanks a million!

SkyTEM staff present a Certificate of Appreciation to their client SLN in New Caledonia as SkyTEM reached 1,000,000 kilometres of airborne geophysical data collected and delivered. Left to right are: Solvej Plenge Trautner (Project Manager SkyTEM), Pierre Pecheur (Pilot), Anne Raingeard (BRGM), Gwladys Lansun (SLN), Mohamed Kadar (SLN), David Nauss (Field Manager Devbrio/SkyTEM) and James Ball (Field Manager SkyTEM)

SkyTEM has mapped 1,000,000 km of the Earth











That’s equivalent to almost 25 trips around the world and all of it mapping with helicopters on all seven continents, safely and without incident or accident.

In 2004 SkyTEM launched breakthrough airborne geophysical technology that delivers highly accurate images of the earth from the very near surface to depth. Recognition of the technology grew quickly as scientists and resource explorers globally turned to SkyTEM for solutions to a wide range of subsurface visualization challenges.  Today SkyTEM proudly announces achievement of a major milestone: The collection and delivery of over 1 million kilometers of airborne electromagnetic data.

SkyTEM reached this point by attracting highly qualified and dedicated people to work in a culture of innovation and continuous improvement – and they engineered the best airborne geophysical mapping systems possible. The result is unparalleled technology available in a choice of systems suited for a wide variety of exploration objectives. As the success stories have spread, SkyTEM has also became recognized for their professionalism and focus on client needs.

Today SkyTEM is engaged by government agencies, resource exploration companies and environmental/geotechnical engineering companies worldwide. The company is transparent in what they do, they show their work.  Clients trust the earth data they receive and confidently rely on it to make critical decisions.

The 1,000,000-kilometre journey doesn’t stop here – this milestone is only the beginning and SkyTEM is excited to continue advancing the technology, its influence and its solutions.

“Thank you for relying on SkyTEM to satisfy your mapping requirements and we look forward to serving you in the months and years to come. We couldn’t have done it without our employees, customers and partners. To all of you, thank you.” Dr. Flemming Effersø, Chief Executive Officer, SkyTEM Surveys ApS.

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.”

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.
