SkyTEM has made available the data sets from the survey flown over the Caber Deposit in Québec in 2015.
The Caber North deposit is particularly suitable for testing a helicopter-borne EM system’s signal-to-noise as it is a challenging target and one that conventional ground EM systems have difficulty detecting. The deposit (1.3 Mt @ 4.0% Zn, 1.7% Cu) is buried under more than 300 meters of conductive overburden. SkyTEM516 and SkyTEM512 (launched in 2014) are both proven to successfully detect the Caber North deposit. Detection of this target is difficult because its response ranges from 2 to 10 fV/Am4 where 1 fV=10-15 V. Hence, detection of Caber North and similar targets requires a dipole moment in the range of 1,000,000 NIA and, above all, an exceedingly low noise level.
