Typically used for locating high density ores. Method can be applied in exploration related geological structure investigations as well. Method is based on measuring the gravity variation, relatively high density metallic ores causes positive anomaly in the gravity field. Can also be applied to negative anomaly cases such as industrial minerals exploration or soil thickness estimations.
Gravimetric method is effective for structural geology investigations on the areas of ore potential. Method is effective also locating and delimiting the metallic ore deposits for the use of following exploration acts, e.g. sampling and core drilling. Method is often applied also in groundwater research for large scale estimation of soil thicknesses.
Gravimetric survey is passive, and therefore only the receiver in needed. Surveys are usually carried out on pre-designed measurement points. Height from the sea level of each point is measured as well. We use modern RTK-GPS-systems for height measurement.
Please, see our Gravimetric equipment from equipment listing. If you can’t find desired geophysical or any other equipment from our selection, please let us know. We have excellent connections to rental agencies and pools. Our crew has comprehensive experience of various geophysical equipment.
Client will always receive quality assured raw data from the surveys. Additionally, we are able to do the data processing (for instance to Bouguer anomalies) as well as modelling work. Reporting to requested level as well as orientation of the client to the survey results will be done as requested.
Gravimetric profiles, maps and 3D models are created as requested.
