SkyTEM Surveys (SkyTEM) and Xcalibur Airborne Geophysics (Xcalibur) have entered into a strategic teaming agreement. The purpose of the partnership is to offer a complete suite of advanced airborne geophysical technologies and services to the Energy, Mining and Water sectors in Africa. The partnership combines SkyTEM’s Time-Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) airborne geophysical systems with and Xcalibur’s airborne systems and established operational capabilities across Africa.
SkyTEM’s TDEM systems, the SkyTEM101, SkyTEM304 and SkyTEM508, have earned a reputation worldwide for the acquisition and quick delivery of accurate high resolution data. “We are very excited to work with Xcalibur” said SkyTEM’s CEO Dr. Flemming Effersø, “Teaming with an established partner such as Xcalibur gives SkyTEM the opportunity to rapidly increase its reach, presence and reputation in the African market”
“SkyTem is a great partner and this agreement underscores our commitment to offer our clients a complete Airborne Geophysics solution”, said Simon Bosch, XAGSA, managing director “this agreement includes joint marketing, shared logistics and field services”.
SkyTEM’s airborne geophysical system collects and delivers accurate finely detailed maps of the earth’s subsurface quickly and economically. SkyTEM TDEM technology is applied throughout the world to assist in accurately and cost effectively locating drill targets for a wide variety of exploration targets. In addition to the availability of low altitude magnetic measurements and GRS data, the system can be configured to maximize the response and depth of penetration in various geological settings.
