Fathom Geophysics Newsletter 25

As a free service to our clients and other VIPs, Fathom Geophysics produces an electronic newsletter.

We produce the newsletter as a low-key way of keeping in touch with the folk we care about, and as a way to present some tidbits of information that we hope readers find interesting.

Industry conditions: It's business as usual (knock on wood)

Exploration News: Glacial sulfides point the way

Story thumbnail imageSULFIDE grains survive glaciation-related sediment production and transport well enough that their geochemical signatures can be used in mineral exploration to trace the path back up-ice to likely source areas of possible ore mineralization. Read More 

Rock Mechanics News: Rotational seismic waves burst onto the scene

Story thumbnail imageROTATIONAL seismic waves are becoming better understood thanks to more realistic modeling of layered solids, a category that includes rock masses and various composite materials used in civil-engineered structures. Read More 

About Fathom Geophysics

In early 2008, Amanda Buckingham and Daniel Core teamed up to start Fathom Geophysics. With their complementary skills and experience, Buckingham and Core bring with them fresh ideas, a solid background in geophysics theory and programming, and a thorough understanding of the limitations of data and the practicalities of mineral exploration.

Fathom Geophysics provides geophysical and geoscience data processing and targeting services to the minerals and petroleum exploration industries, from the regional scale through to the near-mine deposit scale. Among the data types we work on are: potential field data (gravity and magnetics), electrical data (induced polarization and electromagnetics), topographic data, seismic data, geochemical data, precipitation and lake-level time-lapse environmental data, and remotely-sensed (satellite) data such as Landsat and ASTER.

We offer automated data processing, automated exploration targeting, and the ability to tailor-make data processing applications. Our automated processing is augmented by expert geoscience knowledge drawn from in-house staff and from details relayed to us by the project client. We also offer standard geophysical data filtering, manual geological interpretations, and a range of other exploration campaign-related services, such as arranging surveys and looking after survey-data quality control.
