Exploration Imagery delivers immediate insight
Know where to look before you hit the ground
For thirty years, Geoimage has provided services to resource exploration companies through many of the key stages, covering both regional and targeted site selection.
Our cutting-edge satellite imagery offers up to an astonishing 30cm resolution for detailed images over priority areas. Stereo capability delivers Digital Terrain Models with better accuracy than LiDAR of the same resolution, often at a much lower cost.
A cost-effective approach
Initial Regional Analysis and Area Selection
The processes of area selection and target identification can significantly benefit from the use of satellite imagery. With a large archive and relatively low entry price, medium resolution satellite data can be used along with spectral processing derivatives to locate smaller areas of interest.
Once these areas of particular interest have been defined, clients can subsequently task these areas to be captured by the higher resolution satellites. This two-stage approach reduces overall costs by mitigating multiple data capture missions through the use of appropriately scaled datasets.
By identifying structural features, alteration signatures and more, we’re able to highlight ore bodies and their respective mineralisations. Having worked closely with the exploration sector for many years, Geoimage can recommend particular sensors and techniques to aid in exploration depending on
We offer spectral processing suites of both high-resolution SWIR’s from WorldView-3, and the eve SWIR’s from ASTER. Our DEMs can also assist with delineating structure features, and we are now able to produce a 50cm DEM with 30cm contours!
The best ways to uncover a wealth of insights
The Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensors measure wavelengths that are useful for identifying alterations associated with minerals. As Landsat ETM+ includes a shortwave infrared band from 2.08-2.35mm, it can not only determine rock
ASTER sensors are also able to leverage multiple thermal
When combined with the satellite-derived surface elevation models, both these products described can be used in
