Surface time-domain EM (TDEM) is the primary geophysical method for the exploration of base metals, precious metals, carbon based minerals and energy exploration. TDEM surveys are an essential tool for any conductive mineral exploration program.
INSTRUMENTS & SOFTWARE
IES uses the instruments and software developed by ElectroMagnetic Imaging Technology:
IES uses Maxwell software to process and interpret EM data. Maxwell is industry-standard for dealing with EM geophysical data whether it is time-domain, frequency-domain, ground or borehole.
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 was the primary geophysical contractor for Hudbay Minerals from 2009-2014. During this time IES engaged up to 50 personnel and gathered over 300,000 meters of borehole EM and 1000 kilometers of surface EM.
