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.
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.
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.
A ground geophysical program on Redstar Gold’s Unga Gold Project in Alaska has extended the gold-bearing Shumagin fault to the southwest and identified a second parallel structure. Redstar processed the IP and MAG survey data using Geosoft Oasis montaj and created unconstrained 3D inversion models in Geosoft VOXI Earth Modelling.
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.
A review of airborne gravity gradiometry data by Margaret Lake Diamonds, in conjunction with its geophysical consultants, has identified 12 high priority targets at the Margaret Lake Property. Interactive modelling of 23 higher priority targets in Geosoft VOXI Earth Modelling led to the selection of 12 high priority drill targets, 11 of which are gravity derived and are within lakes.
Validating or improving geological models with magnetic field data is an important part of creating a unified 3D exploration model to guide drill planning. The benefit of the Magnetization Vector Inversion technique, now proven in the field, is its ability to produce results that are consistent with more geological environments than conventional susceptibility modelling.
Geosoft has worked with organizations of all sizes to define and address their largest exploration data problems, with goals targeted to achieving both immediate and long term value. This article looks at the 3 key drivers that can be your first step towards improved exploration data management.
On November 8th, the Toronto Geological Discussion Group (TGDG) will host a half day symposium on the future of mining and exploration in Canada. Featured speakers include Pam Sangster with the Ministry of Northern Development Mines and Forestry, Goldcorp’s Director of Exploration Rob Penczak, and HudBay Minerals’ Chief Exploration Geologist Kelly Gilmore, among other luminaries. Topics range from the future of gold and base metal exploration, and related innovations in that field, to an overview of commodity and equity markets. Geosoft is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the TGDG's 2012-2013 Program Session.
Alhambra Resources Ltd. reported progress on the Dombraly-Shirotnaia gold trend. During the processing of the gravity and magnetic data, Geosoft databases and grids were calculated and used to sketch magnetic and gravity lineaments, anomalies for further interpretation and target generation. Using the lineament intersections and magnetite destruction patterns as the major criteria, 60 targets were picked up, and 18 were categorized as primary exploration targets.
Five suggestions for best practices to help you handle the data explosion and get started on managing your exploration data management.
