The VTEM and ZTEM airborne EM technologies for the exploration of mineral resources- Case Studies.
The VTEM and ZTEM systems, considered as the most advanced airborne EM technologies, have helped mineral exploration companies find dozens of deposits. The technologies’ success can be traced to the company’s relentless focus not only on innovation and modernization of airborne EM instrumentation but also on advanced data processing and high level data interpretation.
In this talk, we will show some successful case histories from various areas of the World with focus on the exploration of various mineral resources, including precious metals, base metals, kimberlites as well as the exploration of groundwater resources.
