SGC runs several exploration geophysics and GIS training workshops at various times throughout the year and on demand. These are held at SGC’s Belmont office or we can come to you for customised in-house staff training. If you’re interested in any of our workshops or training, please get in touch at Contact Us.

Consulting Geophysicist Dave Isles has been training geologists and geophysicists on Geological Interpretation and Structural Analysis of Aeromagnetic Data for over 20 years. Usually partnered by structural geologist Leigh Rankin, they deliver practical, hands on aeromagnetic interpretation short courses within mining and exploration companies, conference workshop programs and as standalone workshops. Dave and Leigh synthesised their years of experience on this topic into a practical manual, with the publication of their e-book “Geological Interpretation of Aeromagnetic Data” in 2013.  Read more about Dave Isles and his services,

Equipment Training

As part of our equipment rentals, we provide all the necessary training on their usage as well as field acquisition techniques and best practice.

SGC has also worked closely with a number of clients to purchase their own geophysical survey equipment for long term exploration programs. This culminates in on-site field training of local geophysical crews and on-going data QC. We have trained up crews on ground magnetic, induced polarisation, and surface and downhole EM systems and acquisition in Tanzania, Georgia, Brazil, Malaysia and the Philippines.
