SGL is Flying a Geophysical Survey over Northern Maine this Spring and Summer

May 2021 - Sander Geophysics is pleased to have been selected to fly a high resolution magnetic and radiometric survey in Northern Maine. This project is part of a nationwide collaboration between the USGS and state geologists called the Earth Mapping Resources Initiative (Earth MRI) to increase understanding of geology in various regions of the country. “It has been more than 60 years since a public high resolution survey was flown in northern Maine, and we are excited about the new information that the data will provide,” said Amber Whittaker with the Maine Geological Survey.

Sander Geophysics Completes Airborne Gravity and Magnetic Surveys for Mineral Exploration in Quebec

April 2021 - Sander Geophysics has recently completed flying five properties in Quebec for Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. SGL flew its unique AIRGrav system mounted in a helicopter to acquire very high resolution gravity and magnetic data. Canada Silver Cobalt says it aims to use the data from these surveys to help "...identify the magmatic reservoir potentially hosting significant amounts of Nickel- and Copper-Sulphide masses at the base of the magmatic chamber."

Sander Geophysics Awarded Large Airborne Geophysical Survey in Saudi Arabia

October 2020 - Sander Geophysics is very pleased to announce that the company has signed an agreement with the Saudi Geological Survey to provide high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric data over part of the Arabian Shield in western Saudi Arabia. The airborne geophysical survey will provide the Kingdom with a better and more detailed understanding of its mineral resources.

This survey is part of the ambitious and massive Regional Geological Survey Program that will be carried out by the Saudi Geological Survey Authority. The Regional Geological Survey Program takes a three-pronged approach – the Advance Airborne Geophysical Survey, the Multi-element Geochemical Survey and the Detailed Geological Mapping – that will be carried out, over the next six years, through contracts with selected international technical experts. The resulting data will be made available to the general public, researchers, and investors to enrich knowledge, and enhance and develop the mining sector in the Kingdom.
