SGL Prepares for Next Phase of Tellus in Ireland

February 2017 - Sander Geophysics will soon be back in Ireland flying the next phase of the airborne portion of the Tellus project over counties Donegal and Mayo.  This season over 40,000 lkm of data will be acquired using SGL's multi-parameter platform, which includes the high resolution SGFEM four frequency electromagnetic system.  Director of Geological Survey Ireland, Koen Verbruggen, reveals the importance of the project:  “Tellus continues to unearth significant discoveries in relation to the geological composition of Ireland.  By using the latest technology, the next phase of the survey will be delving deep into the environment and natural resources of two regions which are home to some of the oldest rocks in the country.”

SGL Survey Data Used to Target New Exploration Program in Malawi

February 2017 - Mkango Resources has announced its upcoming exploration program in Malawi.  The company said that it will follow up anomalies identified from the World Bank funded nationwide airborne geophysical survey that SGL flew in 2013-14.  The airborne survey involved the acquisition of over 440,000 line kilometres of high resolution magnetic and radiometric data, as well as gravity data over selected areas.  Mkango stated that uranium and the associated tantalum and niobium are the primary focus but lithium potential will also be evaluated.

Sander Geophysics' SGFEM System Helps Find Gold in Ireland

December 2016 - Playfair Mining reports that gold has been found in structures that were mapped by Sander Geophysics' SGFEM frequency domain electromagnetic system.  The SGFEM data were acquired as part of the 2011-2012 campaign of the multi-year Tellus Project for the Geological Survey of Ireland.  According to Playfair, limited drilling has taken place in a fault zone imaged by the SGFEM data, and gold was discovered in the bedrock.  SGL will start flying the next stage of the Tellus Project in the spring of 2017.

SGL Completes Survey Flying in Ireland for 2016

October 2016 - Sander Geophysics successfully completes survey flying in the western part of Ireland for 2016.  Over 43,000 line kilometres of magnetic, radiometric and electromagnetic date were acquired at a nominal flying height of 60m for the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) as part of their multi-year Tellus project. The data were acquired using SGL's multi-parameter platform, which includes the high resolution SGFEM four frequency electromagnetic system.  Dr. Jim Hodson, Tellus Programme Manager states that "The Tellus Survey continues its rollout across Ireland. It is already delivering many benefits to different sectors of our society, and it offers enormous potential for the future".

Sander Geophysics Begins Flying an Airborne Gravity Survey in Australia

October 2016 - Sander Geophysics has started flying a large airborne gravity survey in Australia.  The survey is being conducted on behalf of the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA), Department of Mines and Petroleum, and Geoscience Australia (GA), a division of the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.  The objective of the survey is to support regional geological mapping in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia, and the fully processed data are expected to be publicly available in early 2017.  Sander Geophysics is proud to be working with GSWA and GA on this important project.
