SkyTEM has completed two surveys in Pribalkhash, Kazakhstan in search of minerals. The survey was conducted for our partner in Kazakhstan, Aurora Minerals Group, a company specializing in the transfer of new technologies and attraction of investments in the mining and oil and gas industry.
Besides mapping the subsurface in search of gold, the purpose of the survey was to mobilize SkyTEM equipment to the country and to train domestic specialists who are young graduates from Aurora Minerals Group as well as to train local helicopter pilots in the difficult task of sling load. Training was performed by Walter Koopmann who has many years of experience in flying SkyTEM systems.
Journalist Gregory Bedenko watched the surveying and took a large number of gorgeous photos that are posted on Aurora Mineral Group’s website here.
