Magnus has used MMOY to do Base of Till Geochemistry after target anomalies have been identified. Good crew to work with.



The VTEM (Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic Surveying) is designed to detect and discriminate between moderate to excellent conductors using a low base frequency, long pulse width, and derived B-field.

Providing both high near surface resolution with as well as the depth of penetration. (We can detect conductors deeper than with the GTK data.)
