Airborne gradiometer available

BELL Geospace is now offering its airborne gradiometer, previously used in the petroleum industry, to the mining, oil and gas industries.

Air Full Tensor Gravity Gradient (Air-FTG), obtains high resolution full tensor gradients from an aeroplane and is capable of measuring all of the gravity gradients.

"Our entire team has worked extremely hard to prove that our Air-FTG service will provide the best airborne gravity data available on the market," Bell Geospace's president Scott Hammond said.

"We have verified various mineral targets where known geological data exists."

Hammond said the gradiometer offers rapid identification and screening of targets which reduces time and expense; detection of targets not available through conventional data sets; sustainable development of natural resources by minimising the intrusiveness of ground surveys; and complimentary data to magnetic data sets.

"We will sell Bell's Air-FTG gravity tensors combined with conventional airborne magnetic data on a per line kilometre basis, giving our customers the best chance of making informed decisions during the exploration process."

John Brett, Bell's founder, chief technology officer and a member of the board of directors, was closely involved in developing the FTG technology from an idea to an operating system.

"After more than 25 years of personal experience with the full tensor gradiometer, I am especially proud of Bell's ability to offer both airborne and marine surveys to the mining, oil and gas, and government markets," Brett said.

The company has an extensive library of gravity gradiometry data covering both the Gulf of Mexico and the West of Britain areas.
