Orion has contracted SkyTEM, a leading airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey company headquartered in Denmark which offers state-of-the-art helicopter borne transient electromagnetic (TEM) and magnetic acquisition system, to fly an extensive (6,025 line km) TEM survey covering large portions of the Company’s Masiqhame and Disawell JV Project areas located in the Northern Cape.
The helicopter TEM survey will be flown with the highly innovative – SkyTEM312 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 frequency of 12.5 Hz. This breakthrough technology is aerodynamically superior to any TEM system on the market and as such, the data collected from the survey will contribute to the Company’s exploration success. The survey is scheduled to commence on 26 November 2017.
