  • Compare active and passive cables

    Active cables refer to the cable with electronic part in the cable. Control and ADC in resistivity system controls the electronic parts in the cable, which controls the current injection. Passive cables refer to the cable with no electronic part in the cable. One of the advantage of passive cables is its ability to borehole and marine surveys, operator can put passive cables in water. Putting ...

  • Roll along resistivity survey

    A roll-along survey is a method for operator to survey a long line. After the initial survey, the operator will leave one cable on the ground and move the instrument and cables forward. So there is always one cable overlap between two surveys. Alternatively, the operator can divide the cable in half and only overlap 16 electrode spacing. In this way, the opearator could complete the survey ...

  • Surface resistivity survey case study 1

    The purpose of this surface electrical resistivity survey was to delineate the event direction of a gold ore deposit. The surface electrical resistivity survey uses a 10m interval cable, that permits the FlashRES 61 channel resistivity meter to detect depth up to 120m. The depth is dependent on the cable length.  The system found an occasional resistive band from 0-350m. This knowledge was ...

  • Surface-point resistivity survey - Case Study

    Drilling boreholes for exploration can be cost ineffective and time consuming. Doing surface-point resistivity survey can provide fast and accurate results, with known position of the target, FlashRES can utilize its electrodes in borehole to target the position of the target, this enables operators to have a good understanding of the interested area. Surface-point resistivity method can also ...

  • The exploration depth of FlashRES resistivity meter

    The formula for calculating the maximum depth is universal for all resistivity meters. The exploration depth depends on the survey line length. the survey depth is usually 20-25% of the survey line total length. For example, for 10m takeout cables, the total length of the cable is 10m*63=630m and this means the exploration depth is 0.2*630m to 0.25*630m. The resolution is 10% of ...

  • Mineral prospecting case study 2

    We had recently carried out a copper prospecting survey. Electrodes were placed on the surface at 5m interval, one cable was connected to electrodes on surface and another cable is put in to the borehole. After repeating the surveys at nearby borehole, we generated two resistivity distribution images. We determined that the band of low resistivity approximately 30m below surface has a high chance ...

  • Underground fracture detection case study

    This underground fracture detection survey was completed by ZZ Resistivity Imaging Pty. Ltd. Two 12m electrode spacing 32-core cables were used to collect resistivity data.  Then the data is coversed into true resistivity distribution images. Figure below clearly shows the glide plane is located between high (red) and low resistivity (green) ...

  • Compare popular resistivity meters with FlashRES

    Although most resistivity meters nowadays can collect resistivity, IP and SP data and most of these systems are multi-channal resistivity meters, there is still a technical gap between traditional and next generation resistivity meters. FlashRES has six to 8 times more channel than traditional system, this means larger data quantity, which could help the resistivity inversion image ...

  • The key advantages of FlashRES resistivity meter

    FlashRES-UNIVERSAL is the first instrument in the world that can fully utilise all its electrodes during data collection.  It is a significant technological breakthrough. FlashRES-UNIVERSAL has following key advantages: FlashRES is a 61-channal resistivity/IP system and it is extremely fast For each current injection, conventional resistivity systems usually collect ...

  • Prospect of offshore wind energy development in Japan

    In Japan, the cumulative capacity of wind turbine generation systems on land has increased steadily in recent years. To install a large number of wind turbines has inherent problems such as shortage of suitable land, and inadequate infrastructure such as power cables and roads. The necessity for development of offshore wind turbine generation systems has been recognised based on the above ...
