Margaret Lake Commences Ground Geophysics on High Priority Targets

Margaret Lake Diamonds is further testing 12 priority targets on its Margaret Lake property 300 kilometres northeast of Yellowknife, NWT, with ground gravity and electromagnetic surveys in conjunction with bathymetry. Twenty three higher priority target were modelled using VOXI Earth Modelling, a cloud-based inversion service provided by Geosoft. The modelling process proved to be a useful filter.

Choosing the right magnetic field inversion method for your geological situation

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.
