Tellus Ireland Survey Done for 2015

November 2015 - Sander Geophysics has just completed the fourth phase of the Tellus project involving the collection of geophysical data for the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) over eastern Ireland.  The Minister for Natural Resources, Joe McHugh announced "... the current phase of airborne surveying is now complete, on-schedule, marking another significant milestone for this important national project".  In all, 32,643 km were flown using SGL's multi-parameter Twin Otter survey aircraft, which simultaneously recorded high resolution frequency domain electromagnetics, magnetics and radiometrics.  Final data processing is now underway at SGL´s head office, and the GSI will make the data publicly available in early 2016.

Tellus Ireland Survey is Progressing Well

September 2015 - Sander Geophysics´ airborne survey in Ireland for the Tellus project is progressing well, and flying is currently taking place over County Meath.  The communication campaign continues to be a major focus to alert the local population to SGL's low flying aircraft.  The progress of the magnetic, radiometric and electromagnetic survey in the midland and east region of Ireland can be tracked on the Tellus website.  According to the Geological Survey of Ireland the previous phases of this exploration project have resulted in positive international interest.

Combined SkyTEM and AIRGrav Survey in Hope Bay, Nunavut

September 2015 - Sander Geophysics is pleased to report that data acquisition on TMAC Resources´ Hope Bay and Elu gold mining projects in Nunavut has begun. Sander Geophysics and SkyTEM have teamed to acquire over 15,000 line kilometres of combined electromagnetic, magnetic and gravity data over TMAC´s properties. The airborne data will be used to supplement previous exploration carried out on the Greenstone belt, helping TMAC create Canada´s next major gold mining camp.

NWMO Concludes Preliminary Assessment:  Creighton, SK and Schreiber, ON

March 2015 - The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has announced that it has concluded preliminary assessment work in the communities of Creighton, Saskatchewan, and Schreiber, Ontario, as part of the multi-year plan to find a site where a deep geological repository could be constructed to safely contain and isolate Canada´s used nuclear fuel over the long-term.   Sander Geophysics Ltd. (SGL) conducted airborne gravity and magnetic surveys over these communities under contract to NWMO, and SGL's interpretation of these geophysical data forms part of the preliminary assessments.  SGL's reports on the acquisition, processing and interpretation of the airborne gravity and magnetic data for the two communities can be found here:

Multidisciplinary Survey Completed in Kenya:  SGL Acquired Airborne Gravity and Magnetic Data in 2013

February 2015 - CAMAC Energy just completed the 2D seismic portion of a multidisciplinary survey in Kenya.  The first stage of the project was an airborne magnetic and gravity survey flown by Sander Geophysics, which involved flying over 10,000 line kilometres of high resolution magnetic data and gravity data with SGL's AIRGrav system.  Results of the airborne survey were used to help position the seismic lines over geophysical targets of interest.  CAMAC says that the seismic survey will be used in conjunction with the previously completed airborne gravity and magnetic surveys to help identify potential drilling targets.
