BATHURST, New Brunswick BELL GEOSPACE of Houston, Tex., has won the contract to fly gravity and gravity gradiometry surveys in northern New Brunswick. The contract was awarded by NORANDA as part of its advanced exploration technologies program.
Bell Geospace will fly 15,200 line km of Air-FTG surveys as part of a three-year program, half of which is funded by the provincial government. By using new technology, the company hopes to find previously-overlooked mineralization. Air-FTG surveys have already been flown in other Canadian provinces and Africa.
FTG stands for "full tensor gradient" technology, and it is delivered in three dimensions. Learn more and read a case study at www.bellgeo.com.
