Deep Ground Penetrating Radar Survey in the New England Fold BeltSydney, Sep 15, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Revolution Metals Ltd, Australia's newest gold developer, has just completed a seven kilometre Deep Ground Penetrating Radar (DGPR) Survey around their exploration tenements in Northern NSW.
Ultramag Geophysics PL, led by Philip McClelland, carried out the survey using Ultramag's proprietary system and utilized both 50 metre and 200 metre depth antenna.
Numerous significant below surface structures were identified that appear to copy the already mined mineralised gold bearing lodes, but were not visible at surface and remained undetected during earlier gold mining activity.
The portability of the DGRP system was evident in the deployment of the equipment on slopes of up to 37 degrees.
Additionally the survey was able to locate voids under the surface that indicate the potential for underground water channels. Local landholders can benefit from this knowledge to identify sources of water for farm use and establish permanent water supplies.
Analysis of the data is being undertaken for three dimensional modelling and will be available within a few weeks.
"We are very fortunate to be among the first to harness the visual imagery that is returned from the DGPR system, and it is good that the industry is starting to understand the depth of data that can now come from this type of technology" said Tim Mckinnon, CEO of Revolution Metals.
"I think the Ultramag system has got a huge future and it is interesting to see the world waking up to it. We are very lucky to have it here." commented Julian Malnic (Geologist and Chairman of the Sydney Mining Club)
