The Multinational Andean Project:
A joint funded project with Canadian International Development Agency, the Geological Survey of Canada and the National Geoscience Agencies of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile & Peru.
Industry Partners Sought For Multiparameter Airborne Geophysical Surveys
Consortium Aeromagnetic/Spectrometry Survey
Aeromagnetic surveys are recognized for their usefulness in delineating faults, contacts and alteration zones as well as buried intrusives. Spectrometry surveys provide complementary information on alteration zones as indicated by anomalous concentrations of potassium, uranium and thorium and their ratios. Together these techniques provide a powerful tool for identifying areas prospective for mineral exploration.
A high resolution aeromagnetic/spectrometry survey to be funded by an industry/ government consortium and managed by MAP is being planned. The participation cost will be $35000 US for which the participating companies will receive exclusive use of the data for one year before release by the respective governments. Survey specifications will be Geological Survey of Canada standards, as used for the recent MAP survey in Northwest Argentina. Survey parameters, such as line direction, will be determined by a Technical Committee consisting of one representative from each participating company, SERNAGEOMIN (Chile), SEGENAR (Argentina) and chaired by Dr. Catherine Hickson, MAP Project Manager. Line spacing will be one kilometer. The contract will be awarded by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) according to PWGSC rules and procedures. The Technical Committee will provide the technical evaluation of the proposals for PWGSC according to the requirements specified in the Request for Proposal. Survey products will include digital profile data, gridded data and maps as specified by the Technical Committee.
