Geosoft has released a new add-in for importing and viewing Geosoft raster files within ArcGIS Pro, Esri’s next-generation desktop GIS.
A research project has made progress in advancing the ability to identify potential locations and intensities of earthquakes in a rift zone. Temporal aeromagnetic data and recent earthquake data was integrated, within Geosoft Oasis montaj, to address the longstanding question of the role preexisting Precambrian structures play in modulating strain accommodation and subsequent ruptures leading to seismic events within an active rift system.
X-Terra enters option agreement to acquire a 50% interest in the Storm Lake Gold Property: diamond drill program to test magnetic anomaly identified with VOXI MVI
X-Terra announced it has entered an option agreement with Greg Exploration Inc. to acquire a 50% interest in the Storm Lake Gold Property. There has been sparce exploration on the Storm Lake Gold Property over the years, however results from a high resolution magnetic survey and 3D Magnetization Vector Inversion (MVI) in Geosoft VOXI have outlined a highly magnetic feature that was previously concealed, interpreted as a deep-seated magnetic-rich intrusion into the fault plan.
Geosoft was pleased to be among the speakers at Indaba 2018 held in Cape Town, South Africa in February. Presenting at the conference’s Nigeria Day, President and CEO Tim Dobush outlined how public-private collaborations can improve the accessibility and application of geoscience data.
Geosoft will be among the speakers at the Oceanology 2018 technical session on Marine Renewables: Advances in Marine Surveying Techniques, being held on March 15. The session will look at recent advances in surveying techniques, including improved identification of UXO, with the potential to minimize the requirements for extensive surveying.
Geosoft was pleased to support the Geophysics for Environmental Scientists course recently conducted by Keele University, providing students with Oasis montaj software subscriptions to analyze and interpret the geophysical data.
Geosoft has announced the release of its 9.3 software update for Oasis montaj, Target and Target for ArcGIS. The release includes new 3D visualization features and enhancements, including more voxel display options, improved 3D rendering, and the ability to create animated videos from snapshots.
Geosoft co-founder Ian MacLeod is the proud recipient of the Cecil Green Enterprise Award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). MacLeod and other award recipients were honoured on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017, at the SEG International Exposition and 87th Annual Meeting in Houston.
Geosoft is partnering with Acorn Science and Innovation to create a cloud-based technology solution for unexploded ordnance classification projects. The 3-year project, funded by the US Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program, will deliver a cloud prototype for classifying buried metal as either UXO or non-hazardous clutter based on the analysis of electromagnetic induction data.
In conjunction with the National Association of Ordnance Contractors (NAOC), the US Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) sponsored a series of training classes in June and July on the recently-released version 9.2 of Geosoft’s UX-Analyze analysis software.
Public domain satellite gravity inversion offshore Somalia combines layered-Earth and voxel based modelling
A new technical paper describes how Geosoft’s Oasis montaj and GM-SYS software was used to model across the large Hawtmi and Wiahatya faults in northeastern Oregon, in search of potential geothermal resources on the Umatilla Indian Reservation.
The guide to the Carlin Trend field trip organized by Newmont Mining following the Society for Exploration Geophysicists conference in 1996 is now available online. The guide is a comprehensive package of materials that would be impossible to replicate but remains relevant to exploration for Carlin-type deposits.
An article in the latest issue of SEAPEX Press reported on SEAPEX’s first technical meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam, co-sponsored by Geosoft, and Hanoi University of Mining and Geology (HUMG). Participants of the event, held on May 9th, 2017, included experts from PetroVietnam Exploration and Production, Vietnam Petroleum Institute, and professors and students from HUMG.
Geosoft has announced new subscription plans for its Oasis montaj suite of geoscience software with options that include monthly, annual and multi-year terms. This follows the company’s introduction of subscription plans for its Target geology software, and marks Geosoft’s commitment to making all of its desktop software available by subscription.
Taking a new approach to regional integrated seismic exploration, Russia-based Geology Without Limits combined old and new data - reflective and refractive seismic, and potential field - to create a more accurate model of the deep structure of the eastern Black Sea basin. The team applied cutting-edge geophysical technologies, including Geosoft’s GM-SYS 3D and VOXI Earth Modelling software, to form the new model.
Geosoft has announced new integration between Minalytix’s MX Deposit and Geosoft applications, Target and Oasis montaj, as part of its 9.2 software update. The new connectivity enables explorers to easily import drill hole projects from MX Deposit directly into the Geosoft environment.
When a 50 kilogram German bomb was found in the River Thames during civil engineering work earlier this year, bridges were closed, roads cordoned off, and the Royal Navy and police called in to remove and safely detonate the device. As a further precaution, SAND Geophysics was hired to work alongside the Port of London Authority Hydrographic Service to resurvey the area. Key to SAND’s approach was the integration of all of its datasets in Geosoft Oasis montaj to provide a higher level of confidence in the results.
Neo Lithium Corp. has announced a maiden resource estimate for the Tres Quebradas (3Q) lithium brine project in Catamarca Province, Argentina. The company prepared the mineral resource estimation using Geosoft Target for ArcGIS in accordance with best practices specific to brine resources.
Red Pine Exploration and Nighthawk Gold are among the exploration companies that have recently selected MX Deposit for managing their drill logs and results.
