SkyTEM System Features
The SkyTEM method is applied globally for mineral exploration. As the only system capable of operating in dual transmitter modes SkyTEM delivers accurate near surface data together with data to depths up to or greater than 500 m in some cases. The system discriminates between weak geological contrasts giving a more complete and accurate interpretation of geology while increasing confidence in modeling deeper geological structure.
Other advantages for resource exploration are:
Extremely high signal to noise ratio and late time gates for enhanced data quality at depth;
Fast turn-off time and early time data for resolving near surface layers as well as more resistive layers;
Elimination of signal drift and a one-time calibration procedure so data manipulation is greatly reduced;
All sensors mounted on the rigid carrier frame to measure frame geometry and orientation for ensuring extremely accurate inversions;
No operator required in the helicopter reducing weight, fuel consumption and risk;
No STC is required, allowing for quick installation in a variety of helicopter types.
Airborne geophysical data provides a valuable input into mineral exploration programs for the identification of follow-up targets. As airborne geophysical data acquisition can be an expensive exercise, it is vitally important to retrieve as much information as possible from the data to enhance the likelihood of exploration success. SkyTEM offers system flexibility to match the geological environment and will work with the client to tailor a solution which will achieve exploration and planning goals in the most economic manner.
SkyTEM’s constant research and development in the airborne EM field allows exploration companies to apply our innovative technology to quickly collect the most accurate and highest quality data, from which beneficial information can be extracted. This data is of benefit not only to the mineral exploration team, but can be used by environmental, hydrological and geotechnical departments to bring together a cohesive socially and economically sustainable mining program in the future.
The latest stage of development in global economic restructuring is marked by upheaval brought about through technological innovations. By introducing breakthrough technology such as dual-moment data collection, rigid carrier frames and FAST modes of operation, SkyTEM gives exploration companies a way to look beyond traditional and outdated methods. The mantra of constant innovation and improvement provides the driving force behind the scientists, geophysicists and engineers of the SkyTEM team.
