Southern Geoscience Consultants (SGC) is a group of highly experienced geophysicists based in Perth, Western Australia, who provide independent, specialised consulting services to the mineral and petroleum exploration industries globally.

Working with all types of geoscientific data, our services include the planning, management, quality control, processing, imaging and interpretation of geophysical surveys, management of exploration programs, targeting and design of drill holes, GIS and data compilations, project evaluations, sales of multi-client data and value-added products, instrument rentals, rock property measurements and software development.

Since its inception in 1985, the group has consulted to over a thousand organisations worldwide and has been associated with several major discoveries, including the DeGrussa VMS deposit, Maggie Hays, Emily Ann and Cosmos nickel deposits, the Chatterbox gold deposit, and the Kintyre uranium deposit.

Testimonials

Emmerson holds 3,000 sqkm of ground in the Tennant Creek Mineral Field which is one of Australia’s most prolific gold-copper districts producing over 5.5 Mozs of gold and 470,000 tonnes of copper from a variety of deposits including Gecko, Orlando, Warrego, White Devil, Chariot and Golden Forty. These deposits present difficult, small footprint exploration targets and thus it is imperative that we have fully integrated geophysical and geological models and that we continue to evaluate new technologies and concepts that will unlock the next generation of discoveries. In this respect, we have found Southern Geoscience, and in particular their Technical Director Lisa Vella, capable and seamlessly able to work with our technical team. SGC has provided cutting edge geophysical advice and processing that has enabled our team to “see what other explorers have not” and which we believe will be responsible for the next big discovery within our tenements.

SGC geophysicists have completed petrophysical measurements at the DMP core library in Carlisle, Perth for a client’s Pb-Zn project. Conductivity, magnetic susceptibility, galvanic resistivity and induced polarisation measurements were taken on a selection of mineralised and host rock material to establish physical property contrasts to help plan and justify further geophysical reconnaissance surveys in the field.

For more information on our range of petrophysical tools, please contact us.

The Australasian Groundwater Conference 2017 is being held at the University of New South Wales, Sydney this week with Principal Geophysicist Karen Gilgallon attending. She is co-author of a poster presentation with Water Corporation Senior Hydrogeologist Mal McGivern. The poster topic is on “The use of airborne EM/3D modelling to reinterpret the Carbonate Aquifer, and its relationship to seawater intrusion/sustainable yield in Exmouth”.

This is one of several groundwater projects that SGC has been working with Water Corporation on recently.

SMARTem receiver operation – Brazil, 2017

Southern Geoscience Consultants (SGC) has been providing geophysical support to Avanco Resources who are generating exploration targets for IOCG Cu-Au mineralisation in the Carajas Mineral Province of Brazil.  Principal Geophysicist Antonio Huizi provided on-ground training for in-house TEM survey crews to explore for strongly conductive, massive sulphide (Cu-Au rich) mineralisation along prospective structures.  Meanwhile the SGC GIS support team have been organising, compiling and reviewing years of historic geophysical data to help develop new targets.

SGC would like to congratulate Avanco Resources on the success of their Brazilian Cu-Au projects and look forward to working with them into the future.
