Abitibi Geophysics always has an eye out to acquire the latest geophysical equipment and technologies. Abitibi's team of expect geoscientists and engineers are also continuously pushing the limits of geophysical exploration with their world class, in-house equipment, software and field methodology.
Initial Exploration Services and our clients reap the benefits of Abitibi's decades of innovation.
AeroVision Drone-MAG is the latest advancement in UAV geophysics. These low altitude aeromagnetic surveys produce high resolution data, at regular intervals, 10 times faster than a conventional ground mag survey at a fraction of the cost.
AeroVision Drone-MAG is proven technology and has flown thousands of line kilometers. There is a time and place for drone mag. When it is determined to be that time and place, nothing compares to our aeromagnetic survey drones when performing magnetic surveys in remote exploration environments.
A revolution in TDEM data collection that’s pushing the boundaries of exploration
ARMIT-3 TDEM technology is a proprietary surface probe that increases the efficiency and decreases the cost of your TDEM survey.
ARMIT-3 measures B-field and dB/dt in a single pass on all three axes (X, Y, Z) to detect weak to super conductors.
ARMIT-3 has an extremely low noise envelope and provides quality data without the use of liquid helium or nitrogen.
Armit-3 TDEM technology decrease drilling cost with better location of drill targets.
The noise envelope is as good as or better than HT SQUIDS!
The Gravilog® gravimetry probe is a powerful diagnostic tool that complements our solutions in electromagnetism and induced polarization. Any "in-hole" or "off-hole" anomaly can be tested to determine if a high density volume corresponds to it. A judicious use of gravimetry in drilling saves time and money.
Through our partners at Abitibi Geophysics, Initial Exploration Services is the only company authorized by Scintrex to offer the Gravilog® in western Canada.
The Hole-to-Hole 3D IP technique offers greater flexibility than a conventional BHIP survey. A Hole-to-Hole 3D IP configuration greatly increases the detection radius around and below the boreholes, compared to what can be achieved with a conventional BHIP survey.
With significant investments in R&D over many years, our partners at Abitibi Geophysics have developed innovative methodologies and instruments to optimize the effectiveness of TDEM surveys.
InfiniTEM® was specifically designed for detection of sub-vertical mineralization and optimized to explore for conductors under conductive overburden.
Developments in TDEM technologies and the InfiniTEM® loop configuration, have successfully identified many targets, later confirmed by drilling, and the InfiniTEM® system’s performance is recognized worldwide.
Significant enhancements have recently been made to the InfiniTEM® system’s power and range. The new system, named InfiniTEM® XL, achieves four times the dipole moment of the traditional InfiniTEM® system. This significant increase in dipole moment yields an increased depth of exploration. The InfiniTEM® XL configuration may be used for surface or borehole surveys.
Through our partnership with Abitibi Geophysics, Initial Exploration Services is able to offer TDEM solutions to address the full spectrum of exploration challenges, whether you need a conventional loop configuration or the deep exploration InfiniTEM®.
IPower-3D® is the latest innovation in ground induced polarization acquired by our partner Abitibi Geophysics.
IPower-3D® was developed to investigate at depths of more than 600 m with excellent vertical and horizontal resolution and can penetrate the overburden.
IPower-3D® is real 3D acquisition. Multiple orientations allow for the solution of structural problems.
Bringing Induced Polarization (IP) into the 21st century
Our partners at Abitibi Geophysics have elevated conventional IP surveys to a whole new level with the introduction of their proprietary OreVision® IP survey. OreVision® IP is capable of investigating 400% deeper with the same high resolution even through conductive overburden. Why barely scratch the surface when you can investigate deeper for the same budget?
OreVision® has completely revolutionized Induced Polarization surveys.
In collaboration with academic researchers, models showed that the InfiniTEM® configuration could reach exploration depths of up to 1000 meters if the transmitter had increased power and a cleaner impulse. This led to the development of the 18 kW Terrascope® portable transmitter. Now, exploration at 1000 meters depth is a reality for our customers.
