Consortium Aeromagnetic Spectrometry Surveys
(Activity: C.99/M-H1 - C.99/M-H2)

Two new aeromagnetic/spectrometry surveys are being planned similar to that completed in Argentina last year- (1) approximately 30,000 sq km. on the Argentina, Chile border, and (2) approximately 147,000 sq kilometres spanning the borders of Chile, Bolivia and Peru. Industry participation is sought for both surveys. For the first survey (Argentina-Chile), the participation cost is $35,000.00 US for which interested companies will receive exclusive use of the data for one year before general release. Interested companies should contact Eduardo Zappettini, Moyra Gardeweg or Dennis Teskey.

For the second survey (Chile, Bolivia, Peru), the financing will be more challenging, and thus the participation cost and exclusivity period will be negotiated with interested companies. Interested companies should contact Moyra Gardeweg, Humberto Mallo Gozales, Hugo Rivera Mantilla or Dennis Teskey. Both surveys will be managed by MAP and contracted by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC). Both surveys will provide information on the location of faults, contacts, intrusive rocks, and alteration zones, these will be of great interest to mapping geologists and to mineral exploration.
