Acquisition

GEOPHYSICAL PROJECT DESIGN:

Austhai Geophysical Consultants can design and help implement the ideal geophysical survey or series of surveys for various given mineralogical, geotechnical or environmental scenarios. Austhai Geophysical consultants will provide the following project design services:

  • Site visits to conduct reconnaissance for survey design and recommendations.
  • Provide detailed reports outlining:
    • Survey objectives and a summary of relevant Geology
    • Severity of the terrain and the appropriate survey grid orientation
    • Specifications on grid setup and pre-survey preparations
    • Recommended labor requirements.

FIELD ACQUISITION AND SUPERVISION:

Austhai Geophysical Consultants specialise in the acquisition of as well as supervising geophysical field crews acquiring key data. This involves providing the following services:
  • Field crew training in the acquisition of 3D Induced polarization and Total field EM surveys.
  • Onsite Quality control and supervision
  • Onsite data review and adjustment of the survey parameters as the Geophysical survey progresses
  • Compiling Detailed Data QC Reports Outlining:
    • Survey array design and setup.
    • Acquisition procedures and Data issues
    • Data quality overview and Raw data presentation
    • The methodology of the infield data reduction.
