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: Mining sector set to swoon further

Story thumbnail imageTHE Australian mining industry was a casualty of the US versus China trade-tariffs war by the end of 2019, and further ailing seems inevitable as the global economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic continue to unfold. Read More 

Our Capabilities: Water and land resources baseline studies

Story thumbnail imageENVIRONMENTAL baseline conditions such as the timing and distribution of rain, snow, vegetation growth, and lake-level changes can be systematically mapped, analyzed, and monitored using publicly available remote-sensed datasets and satellite imagery. We briefly describe how in this abstract of a full case study in Argentina. Read More 

Exploration News: Thick mafic volcanics found beneath McArthur River deposits

Story thumbnail imageThick basal sequences of mafic volcanic rocks have been implicated in the formation of sediment-hosted base metal deposits in northern Australia's McArthur Basin. Read More 

Ore model news: Gold deposits offshore of New Ireland are focus of new map

Story thumbnail imageTHE FIRST remote predictive map of onshore and offshore geology of the New Ireland Basin and its surrounds has been compiled by researchers from Germany and Canada to help explorers better understand porphyry-epithermal gold systems. 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.
