Sander Geophysics' Uncovers New Geological Features in Ireland

November 2019 - Group Eleven, a mineral exploration company active in Ireland, announced that their preliminary analysis of the multi-parameter data Sander Geophysics recently acquired for the Geological Survey of Ireland's Tellus Programme revealed some previously unknown geological features. Bart Jaworski, CEO of Group Eleven stated that: "To have such an extensive, uniform and high-quality data set over the entire 1,200 km2 Stonepark and PG West project is a big step forward for Group Eleven. We are excited to now use this information to fast-track and refine our plans for what should be an exciting exploration program in 2020 on this project." Sander Geophysics has been part of the Tellus Programme gathering high resolution four frequency SGFEM electromagnetic data, as well as radiometric and magnetic data, on an annual basis, since 2015 and is eager to start the next campaign in 2020.

More of SGL's Multi-Parameter Data Released by Geological Survey Ireland

October 2019 - The Geological Survey Ireland (GSI) has released new multi-parameter data that Sander Geophysics completed flying in the spring of 2019. SGL acquired and processed over 40,000 lkm of high resolution four frequency SGFEM electromagnetic data, along with radiometric and magnetic data in this stage of GSI's ongoing Tellus Programme. According to GSI, SGL's airborne data will help with geological mapping and mineral exploration, as well as assist with environmental management. Sander Geophysics is very proud to be working with GSI, and the company looks forward to returning to Ireland in 2020 to complete the next phase of this important project.

SGL's AIRGrav System Defines a Large Gravity Anomaly in Northern Ontario for VR Resources

August 2019 - VR Resources reveals a large and high amplitude gravity anomaly has been discovered at the same location as the magnetic anomaly at the Ranoke copper-gold property in northern Ontario. Dr. Michael H. Gunning, VR's CEO, stated that, "I am not sure that this airborne survey could have delivered a more definitive anomaly and more compelling evidence for a large and coherent body of high-density copper sulfide related to variably magnetic iron oxide minerals at Ranoke. This survey confirms and advances the potential for a large IOCG mineral deposit at Ranoke".

More Gravity Data Released from SGL's Western Australia AIRGrav Surveys

July 2019 - The Geological Survey of Australia has released preliminary Bouguer anomaly grids and images from the Pilbara 2019 airborne gravity survey flown by SGL. The final data set will be released once additional processing and QA/QC procedures have been completed. The preliminary data can be downloaded using the GeoVIEW.WA interactive mapping application.

SGL To Start Next Phase of Project in Ireland

June 2019 - Sander Geophysics is moving to the southeast of Ireland for the next phase of the Tellus Survey programme. SGL´s de Havilland Twin Otter (registration C-GSGF) will be flying at 60 m over rural areas and 240 m over urban centres for the next several months gathering high resolution magnetic, radiometric and electromagnetic data. The Tellus Survey's aim is to have 75% of Ireland mapped by 2020 and provide more information to benefit economic, environmental and agricultural endeavours. The data from this project is made available at no charge from the Tellus website. Dr. James Hodgson, Senior Geologist and Project Manager from Tellus says "The Tellus Survey is an important project which continues to provide us with significant data that will offer us valuable insights about the makeup of Ireland." SGL is proud of its ongoing involvement with the Tellus surveys.

SGL Continues to Improve Australia's Gravity Coverage with AIRGrav

May 2019 - Sander Geophysics is back in Western Australia, now flying AIRGrav over the Pilbara region, which is the third largest gravity project SGL has flown under a collaborative program between the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) and Geoscience Australia (GA). Commenting on the new survey, Dr. Ian Tyler, GSWA Geoscience Director, said: “The release of the Pilbara survey data later this year will bring to completion a new generation of regional gravity coverage of the State, with up to 16 times higher resolution than the first generation coverage of the Australian continent...”

SGL is also very proud to report the public release of AIRGrav data over Kimberley Basin, Little Sandy Desert and Great Victoria Desert areas in Western Australia. The fully processed data are now available on the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety’s (DMIRS) website to download free of charge. This project was flown in 2018 under the same collaborative program between GSWA and GA. Underscoring the importance of the data, GSWA Geoscience Director, Dr Ian Tyler, said that the airborne gravity surveys provide "...critical information in the understanding of key geological elements across the State."

SGL Has Introduced Children to the Magic of Reading for 10 Years

April 2019 - For ten years SGL has given time for the SGL OttawaReads group to volunteer to read one-on-one to kindergarten children every Friday morning. This program involves an organization, in this case Sander Geophysics, partnering with a school in the geographic area that would benefit from some extra help. General Vanier Public School has a significant number of newcomers to Canada, and showing a love of reading through our interaction with the children encourages the enhancement of their literacy skills.

SGL Involved with IceBridge from the Beginning

January 2019 - SGL is very proud to have been involved with NASA's IceBridge project from 2009 to 2018. When the project began in 2009, SGL's unique AIRGrav airborne gravimeter was selected by NASA to define the shape of seawater filled cavities at the edge of some major fast moving glaciers. AIRGrav achieved a remarkable 99% success rate despite very challenging conditions and strict flight schedules. AIRGrav flew on 269 NASA flights (114 in the Arctic and 155 in Antarctica) culminating in a total of 1,377,340 line kilometres of fully processed gravity data being delivered to NASA, and made available to researchers worldwide. IceBridge is now complete and SGL was thrilled to have been involved with this important endeavour.
