SGL Flying a Large Fixed Wing and Helicopter Survey over the Northeastern US

August 2022 - Sander Geophysics is pleased to have been selected to fly a large magnetic and radiometric fixed wing and helicopter survey over the northeastern US (includes northern Maryland, southern Pennsylvania, northeastern West Virginia and northernmost Virginia). This survey will be flown between 300 to 1,000 feet above the ground as part of the USGS Earth Mapping Resource Initiative (Earth MRI) project. This nationwide collaboration between the USGS and state geologists will enhance the fundamental knowledge of the geologic framework of the area and according to the USGS the benefits provided include the ability to evaluate natural resources, groundwater and earthquake hazards.

SGL Flying Helicopter Survey in Montana

May 2022 - Sander Geophysics is delighted to have been selected to fly a magnetic and radiometric helicopter survey in western Montana. This survey will be flown with an SGL helicopter at 300 to 500 feet above the ground as part of the USGS Earth Mapping Resource Initiative (Earth MRI) project. According to USGS, the gathered data will be made public and will provide state-of-the-art subsurface maps that will contribute to a wide range of 3D representations of the nation’s exposed and concealed geology.

SGL is Awarded a Large Multi-Parameter Survey in Oman

April 2022 - Sander Geophysics is thrilled to have been selected by Minerals Development Oman (MDO) to fly a large multi-parameter airborne geophysical survey covering parts of the Sultanate of Oman. Airborne electromagnetic, magnetic, radiometric and gravity data will all be acquired simultaneously using SGL's unique sensor technology, including AIRGrav and SGFEM systems. According to MDO, "These surveys are crucial to enhance the geological knowledge at surface and depth, leading to better target mineral anomalies which will be tested to identify mineral ores." Sander Geophysics is very proud to be part of this important project, and we look forward to a safe and successful survey.

New Data Release from Ireland's Tellus Airborne Geophysical Survey Project

April 2022 - The Geological Survey Ireland (GSI) has released geophysical data acquired by Sander Geophysics over the southeast of the country. SGL´s de Havilland Twin Otter (registration C-GSGF) gathered over 55,000 lkm of multi-parameter data, including high resolution SGFEM four frequency electromagnetics, total field magnetics and full-spectrum radiometrics. The latest data have been merged with the previously flown data, and according to GSI the merged dataset now provides over 80% coverage over the island of Ireland. The new data, along with the technical reports and the merged data, can all be accessed online here. Sander Geophysics looks forward to returning to Ireland to complete the next phase of this important project.

SGL Flying a Large AIRGrav Survey in Australia

March 2022 - Sander Geophysics is thrilled to be back in Australia flying a large gravity survey over southeast Victoria for the Geological Survey of Victoria, Surveyor-General Victoria and Geoscience Australia. Gravity data are being acquired using Sander Geophysics' industry leading AIRGrav system in order to improve the accuracy of the geoid model, and to provide consistent and evenly-spaced gravity measurements over Victoria for geological and geodetic applications. Upon completion of survey flying and data compilation, all information gathered will be freely available through the government of Victoria and Geoscience Australia.
