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.

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.
Red Pine Exploration and Nighthawk Gold are among the exploration companies that have recently selected MX Deposit for managing their drill logs and results. A new Earth Explorer article looks at some of the challenges they face in managing their drilling data, and key factors in choosing their solution.
Geosoft announced its participation in a pilot project aimed at improving the availability, accessibility and usability of geoscientific data to guide resource investment in the Eastern African Region. The pilot project, and launch of a geodata portal hosted by Uganda, will be conducted under the auspices of African Union Commission.
Geosoft introduced new subscription plans for its Target geology software at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) international convention in Toronto this week. Target subscriptions include access to Geosoft’s geological modelling and interpretation software and a toolset for geochemical analysis and QA that provides the ability to validate and analyze assay results.

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.
