www.bellgeo.com

Bell Geospace has been at the forefront of Gravity Gradiometry for over 30 years. Bell Geospace provides exploration companies with Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) and magnetic data to enhance sub-surface models and de-risk exploration projects.

Explore Province to Play, Efficiently
Airborne geophysics with FTG allows fast screening and ranking of prospective areas at the province and district scale, de-risking ground exploration at prospect and play scale. Accurate and informative data enhances existing complementary data and fine tunes a strategy for future acquisition.

African Gold Exploration
Bell Geo's FTG, gravity and magnetic data acquisition technology is especially good at locating contact zones and faults, suitable for finding the mineralized geology which hosts gold. Bell Geo’s most recent gold exploration project took place in West Africa. Gaud Pouliquen and Colm Murphy can share more details about this in person at SAGA.
Energy-Metals Exploration in Africa
Geoscientific methods are more critical than ever for energy-supply sustainability. Structural and lithological information to demystify subsurface mineral systems is required on a new, larger scale. If you're exploring in the Kalahari and Zambian copper belt, ask us at SAGA about Bell Geo’s experience in Botswana, Zambia, South Africa... and beyond.

New Interpretation Methods
The mines of tomorrow are hidden beneath layers of sedimentary cover or nestled as subtle extensions to known deposits. While traditional airborne geophysics excel in detecting metal deposits near the surface, they struggle when encountering deeper targets or non-magnetic geological trends.

Exploration teams seek to deploy high-resolution technologies on surveys with closely spaced lines or stations covering extensive areas. These surveys should capture a broad signal bandwidth to map the deeper extensions and connectivity with shallow structures effectively. However, such practices are not always feasible due to challenging terrain, including water bodies, vegetation, restricted access, or the significant time and budget required to acquire such data across large areas. Bell Geospace's FTG technology overcomes many of these limitations. With our latest workflows, signal bandwidth resolves shallow complexity and allows confident mapping at depth and will deliver geological structures and shapes within a given depth interval/window.

VISION OF SAMERDI

“To maximise the returns of South Africa’s mineral wealth through collaborative, sustainable research, development, innovation and implementation of mining technologies in a socially, environmentally and financially responsible manner that is rooted in the wellbeing of local communities and the national economy.”

THE MANDELA MINING PRECINCT,

officially opened on 4 May 2018, provides the opportunity to have a community of researchers working together in the same space on related subjects both from an inter- and intra-organisational perspective.

THE SOUTH AFRICAN MINING EXTRACTION, RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND INNOVATION (SAMERDI) STRATEGY

The SAMERDI Strategy, as an outcome of the Mining Phakisa, provides a roadmap on how to work collectively towards technological solutions that will increase safety and productivity, and reduce costs to ultimately extend the life of mines by:

Improving the competitiveness of the sector and creating new opportunities for South African based companies to operate in areas along the entire value chain; and

Reposition South Africa as the world leader in mining RD&I by building human resource skills, capabilities, and capacities across industry, academia and the science councils, ensuring its sustainability.

The SAMERDI Strategy provides a roadmap on working collectively towards technological solutions that will increase safety and productivity, reduce costs, and ultimately extend the life of mines.

Thus the implementation of the SAMERDI strategy through collaboration and support from researchers (science councils and academia), government depart­ments, mining houses (individually and collectively), and organised labour unions can be the solution to the chal­lenges that beset the mining sector.

Wireline Workshop (Pty) Ltd is a geophysical borehole logging company, formed in August 2007 that provides a combination of long experience, latest technology and operational capacity. The owners have over 70 years of hard-won experience, describing mining targets from remote Mongolian coal to Andean copper and South African gas fields. The Company offers specialised imaging services (optical and acoustic) to the Mining and Civil Engineering sectors, such as structural information used in major dam projects in Southern Africa. Calibrated and borehole compensated physical property measurements are designed in the UK and Luxembourg for application in all mining and exploration fields from coal through base and precious metals to unconventional hydro-carbons such as CBM and tight shale gas. These include density, gamma, neutron, resistivity and sonic. Then there is the north-seeking gyro service and the XRF and UV florescence loggers. Client requirements vary from mineral type to location, whereby consultation is offered at all stages throughout the duration of the work. Our flagship service is the high-level log analysis and presentation.

Geovista geophysical borehole logging and imaging tools serve geoscientists worldwide, with best in class performance. We supply the largest range of dependable systems to cover borehole data requirements for exploration, mining exploitation, site investigation, and groundwater. We manufacture and supply compact loggers, reliable winches with a full set of safety features, an extensive range of combinable sondes, televiewers, borehole video inspection cameras and North Seeking Gyros. Sonde stacking capability allows for efficient logging operations. It also allows for useful sensor combinations that would otherwise not be possible. Both the cameras and the logging sondes can be run on the same wireline cable. Geovista also offer memory and Thru-bit logging conveyance modes as well as the traditional wireline for high risk or deviated boreholes.

Expert Geophysics Limited (EGL) is a geophysical company specializing in advanced helicopter borne electromagnetic surveys worldwide. EGL offers the latest innovation in proprietary airborne electromagnetic technologies:

  • The Mobile MagnetoTellurics (MobileMT) system is the most advanced generation of airborne AFMAG technology. It maps resistivities from shallow to > 1000m and has application mapping porphyries, the alteration and dissemination halos accompanied Cu, Au, Ag, and Mo mineralisation, all types of VMS, superconductive Ni-Cu-Co, unconformity uranium deposits and geothermal targets.
  • MobileMTm is a similar system suited to shallower more detailed work and is flown with a gradient magnetometer and has application mapping kimberlites and structure.
  • mTEM is a time-domain system electromagnetic system designed for detailed near surface investigations. mTEM is the only system in the industry able to acquire quality data in industrial areas with significant electromagnetic disruption and power line electrical noise.

SPECTREM AIR operates one of the most advanced fixed-wing airborne geophysical systems, collecting high-resolution Electromagnetic (EM), Magnetic, and Radiometric concurrently.

With the highest power and advanced processing, the SPECTREMPLUS system can has the ability to simultaneously map shallow (1-100 m) and deep (100-1000 m) features with a high level of resolution. Our team of specialists provides integrated 3D solutions for geological mapping, minerals exploration targeting including oil & and gas, geo-hydrological, and geo-engineering applications. The principal objective of developing these airborne systems is to enhance our ability to carry out effective exploration in areas where the geology is poorly exposed on the surface.

Spectrem is also conducting a significant amount of in-house R&D to ensure that the system remains state-of-the-art and satisfies the needs of its clients. In that respect, Spectrem was the first company to develop and commission an airborne magnetic gradiometer using the SQUID superconducting technology.
