General Mapping Case Study
This is a collection of various cases where the 2D resistivity imaging method pioneered by Advanced Geosciences Inc have been successfully applied. Click on a section below and you will be shown a full 2D resistivity imaging brochure detailing the case in question.
These cases have been submitted by satisfied customers whom we thank for permission to publish their data on the web. Each detailed broschure will have a citation for the source of the data.
Using resistivity imaging to map stratigraphy.
Mapping of sand and gravel lenses in a clay environment using resistivity imaging.
Mapping magnesium deposits using resistivity imaging.
This is an example of a survey in a low resistivity (=high conductive) environment. The total range of the resistivity is only 3-26 ohmm. The relatively 'high' resistivity (15-25 ohmm) magnesium ore is covered by a low resistivity overburden (
The geophysical instruments used in the resistivity imaging cases described here are the AGI SuperSting R8/IP earth resistivity meter and the AGI Sting R1 earth resistivity meter together with the AGI Swift multi electrode cables and smart switches.
These make up systems with extremely fast data acquisition in the field.
Today the single-channel Sting R1 has been replaced by the even faster and more accurate instrument: SuperSting R8/IP
The interpretation of data like this can be done using the 2D inversion program AGI EarthImager 2D available from AGI.
