The founders of Insight Geophysics have deep roots in the past, but their approach to Induced Polarization (IP) represents the future of mineral exploration: real time interpretation of data, integration of non-geophysical information with 3D inversions, and a dynamic style of surveying that allows for tweaks on a day to day basis depending on feedback from the exploration team.

“The recent rush to find graphite and vanadium deposits to satisfy potential demand in green energy applications is reigniting airborne electromagnetic (EM) methods as highly effective exploration tools.”
Interview with Dr. Michal Ellen Ruder, Wintermoon Geotechnologies Inc on the use of gravity and magnetic methods for Oil and Gas exploration.
1. Under what conditions will gravity methods outdo seismic? Why?
2. In what situations are gravity methods absolutely indispensable if you want results?
3. Can you describe some cases where seismic and gravity methods complement one another?
4. What techniques have you personally developed or enhanced?
5. Gravity/magnetic methods used to be used mainly to tell an explorer where to best place seismic. Nowadays you’re advocating its use as complementary and integrative to seismic as well. What has caused the shift?
6. What has been the hottest development in the past two years with respect to using grav/mag in oil and gas exploration?
The answers are here:
