Searcher, a leading service provider of global geoscience products for exploration and production companies, has expanded into the mining sector with the completion of an airborne exploration survey in Queensland, Australia, on behalf of copper and gold-focused Longreach Mineral Exploration Pty Ltd.
The new airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical survey was acquired over Longreach’s exploration permit (EPM27423), around 40 km northeast of Clermont, Queensland. The survey covers 387 sq.km and includes 8,770 km of data acquisition lines.
Searcher was contracted by Longreach to assist with project management. Its input included project planning and survey design, sourcing and contracting MAGSPEC Airborne Surveys Pty Ltd as the principal contractor, management and quality control of the acquisition and processing and interpretation of the final data.
Helen Anderson, Vice President of Minerals for Searcher, said: “Searcher’s extensive knowledge and experience in the petroleum industry is transferable to the mineral sector. We were able to apply this to assist Longreach Mineral Exploration to achieve their exploration goals. We are also excited to be actively reviewing other data acquisition and data services to offer the mineral sector.”
