AURORA GEOSCIENCES - geophysical surveys

Geophysical data is processed and checked in the field, and preliminary plots are delivered to clients on-site to facilitate exploration projects conducted within tight schedules. Our staff of geophysicists and geologists work in collaboration to extract geological insight from geophysical data. VMS and SEDEX deposits - magnetics, time domain electromagnetics, FDEM, IP, seismic, gravity, borehole.


AURORA GEOSCIENCES - mining exploration

The application of geophysical methods to the exploration of kimberlites, volcanogenic and SEDEX massive sulphides, intrusive and iron formation hosted gold deposits, and northern placer deposits. We provide claim staking, line cutting, exploration camp construction and operation, and logistical support for mineral exploration projects. Geological and exploration support services to mineral exploration companies exploring in the North.


AURORA GEOSCIENCES - oil gas exploration

With a northern base and local experience, Aurora Geosciences offers oil & gas exploration companies cost-effective high quality data acquisition, particularly for small projects where mobilization costs are significant. To companies engaged in oil & gas exploration in the NWT or Yukon.


AURORA GEOSCIENCES - capacitively coupled

CCR systems inject low frequency alternating current into the ground using long wire antennas acting as capacitors and records voltage fluctuations created by variations in the resistivity of the ground. We deliver plan maps of apparent resistivity for single separation surveys and pseudosections of apparent resistivity for multiple separation surveys.
