Initial Exploration Services uses cutting edge technology, proven data acquisition techniques and the latest software to give our Clients the most accurate and precise geophysical surveys possible.


Initial Exploration Services has worked in the High Arctic, the jungles of West Africa, the foothills of Mexico, the rain forests of Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, the fjords of Greenland, the deserts of Morocco, Yemen and Oman, the outback of Australia and across North America.


Initial Exploration Services has been exploring since 1991. We are committed to the health and safety of everyone on a project, we respect the environment we explore and we are dedicated to the communities we work in.


IES is primarily engaged as a turn key geophysics contract company. We also subcontract and partner with large national and international geophysics companies, work as 'in house' crews and we often train Client and Government employees how to properly conduct geophysical surveys for themselves.
IES has worked with start-ups and junior explorers to majors like BHP Billiton, De Beers, Cameco, Rio Tinto, Hudbay Minerals, Cominco, Teck  and more.​​

​We are proud to say most of our Clients are repeat Clients or referrals.
