GeoStrata Resources Inc.
operates three recording crews; each crew is capable of either 2D or 3D
dynamite and/or vibroseis operations. GeoStrata has extensive experience
in large heli-portable 3D projects and heli-assist programs in
northeastern British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. GeoStrata's fully
qualified project managers and front end personal offer complete service
at the prime contractor level.

The acquisition of seismic data from
thousands of channels is not achieved efficiently if the operators cannot
be sure of the quality of this data. The integration of tools like SQC-Pro
makes quality control possible through access to real-time information by
the observers in the field. This software provides the means, without
slowing down the operations, to quickly detect any problems that could
jeopardize the quality and integrity of the seismic records. The
calculation and visualization by SQC-Pro of attributes related to ambient
noise, recorded frequencies and behavior of the sensors provides shot by
shot data and comprehensive warnings if one particular characteristic goes
out of its acceptable limits.
The ARAM NT software comes complete with
built in quality control tools that include deconvolution, spectral
analysis, FK display, vibrator quality control and filtered panels. These
tools can be displayed both on the screen or output to a 12-inch plotter.
Additionally both high and low cut playback filters can be applied and
output to the plotter.
GeoStrata owns and operates five Mertz
vibrators. The 42,000 pound vibrators, model 18 / 612, are complete with
Pelton Vib Pro control electronics.
GeoStrata utilizes the Pelton Shot Pro
I and II for all dynamite operations
Deployment and Retrieval tools
GeoStrata utilizes the Kodiak
Navigation System along with a company owned Mr. T bag runner for accurate
deployment and retrieval of equipment bags on all heli-assist and
heli-portable projects. This greatly reduces crew effort and exposure to
All GeoStrata vehicles and remote
offices are equipped with state of the art forty watt 256-channel fully
programmable two-way radios; line crew personal are issued matching five
watt 256-channel hand held radios. To enhance communication GeoStrata
deploys a 106 foot self-standing tower complete with repeaters for
dynamite shooting to ensure continual voice contact with all crew members.
Each radio is submitted yearly for testing and calibration to
manufacturer’s specifications by a certified radio dealer.
