A Practical One-Day Workshop on Airborne Electromagnetics

A Practical One-Day Workshop on Airborne Electromagnetics

Targeting geologists and geophysicists, this event was focussed on practical near-surface and mineral exploration applications of airborne electromagnetics. It will include practical theory, case studies and a review of recent and future developments.

Provisional program (including abstracts)

  • What are we measuring?
  • A review of AEM systems
  • Data visualisation and modelling
  • Minerals case studies: nickel, base metals, gold, uranium, manganese
  • Future developments


Presentations available for download are:

1 An overview of AEM systems (Bill Peters)
2 What are we measuring? (Paul Mutton)
3 Data visualisation (Kim Frankcombe)
4 Exploring for diamonds with AEM (Keith Jones)
5 VTEM & Abra (Jimmy Wood)
6 Oblique mineral targets, or horizontal layered noise? (Yusen Ley-Cooper)
7 AEM for definition of manganese mineralisation (King)
8 Geotechnical and regolith mapping (Chris Wijns)
9 Hydrogeological applications of AEM data (Camilla Sørensen)
10 Distal footprints of large ore systems (Tim Munday)
