Geoscience data is to exploration what road systems are to transport: a precompetitive asset that jurisdictions must provide if they hope to foster a viable and sustainable mining industry. This article, which includes an interview with Jon Hronsky of Western Mining Services, looks at the new era of prospectivity and why pre-competitive geoscience data will be essential to mineral exploration as we move into the 21st century.
VOXI Magnetization Vector Inversion helped identify structures in the Pontes e Lacerda area of southwestern Brazil, a gold district at -12° latitude where magnetic anomalies with inverted polarity are poorly understood, in a study presented by Geosoft at SIMEXMIN 2016.
Geosoft is pleased to announce the launch of the Botswana Geoscience Portal, a partnership initiative with the Botswana Geoscience Institute and industry sponsors. The portal provides free access to multi-disciplinary datasets from Ngamiland, a district in the country's northwest.
6 Alpha Associates, a specialist risk consultancy practice, has launched a dedicated explosive ordnance disposal division. The company has also invested in Geosoft UXO software that will enable the firm to further refine and analyse raw survey data and provide a platform for subsequent investigative work.
Geosoft will preview new modelling and analysis capabilities in UXO Marine, a specialized geophysical software solution for underwater site investigations, at the Oceanology International and SAGEEP conferences being held in March 2016. The enhancements are part of a major software update that will be released in Spring 2016.
Geosoft has introduced a new team structure that makes industry and customer needs the focal point for business engagement. Geosoft's global business account team has been organized around 4 industry customer segments: Energy, Government and Education, Mineral Resources, and Near Surface (which includes Unexploded Ordnance, Environmental and Marine).
Geosoft is partnering with the Botswana Geoscience Institute and industry stakeholders to launch a Geoscience Portal that will provide free access to multi-disciplinary datasets from Ngamiland, a district in the country's northwest.
Keeping up with growing demand for seabed surveys has led service providers to improve workflows and innovate to deliver time and cost savings for clients. Bibby HydroMap uses Geosoft’s Oasis montaj and UXO software to effectively process and analyze the massive volume of project data, and generate fast results to assist in on-site planning.
Golden West Humanitarian Foundation will be using Geosoft’s Oasis montaj and UXO Marine software when surveying the coastal waters of the Solomon Islands, where villagers have been living under UXO threat since the end of World War II.
The Geological Survey of Ireland’s Tellus Programme has unearthed volcanics under Ireland’s limestones. The maps, generated in Geosoft Oasis montaj, reveal new detail of 300 million-year-old volcanoes on the Westmeath/Offaly border.
Geosoft won a Silver Stevie® Award for Company of the Year, Computer Software category, in the 2015 International Business Awards. Judges recognized Geosoft for its “commitment to R&D and technical innovation” and “impressive delivery of customer outcomes”.
Geosoft was featured in the Digital Energy Journal’s special report on Finding Petroleum’s “Transforming Subsurface Interpretation” conference, which looked at how to improve understanding of the subsurface with the help of technology.
Geosoft has partnered with Cambridge University Press to provide online access to practical exercises for a recently-released geophysical exploration textbook.
Historical and duplicate data are among the top challenges for exploration data management, according to Geosoft’s 2015 Exploration Information Management Survey Report. The majority of respondents (68%) report challenges managing historical data and 26% rank the amount that is unmanaged or disorganized as their biggest data management issue.
A filtering process refined by inversion modelling in Geosoft VOXI has given Margaret Lake Diamonds the confidence to select 12 drill targets from more than 60 geophysical anomalies on its 50,000 acre diamond property in the Northwest Territories.
