Bell Geospace, the world leader in Gravity Gradiometry, has completed a FTG survey for GTK, an agency of Finland’s Ministry of Employment and Economy.
The survey was conducted in the municipality of Inari, Finland and has provided GTK with a solid basis for geological research and mineral potential evaluation.
Work was completed ahead of time and with both environmental and livestock issues to overcome, the service provided by Bell Geospace was sensitive to local factors.
Use of Bell Geo’s Basler Turbo aircraft ensured extremely low noise emissions during the project, which minimised disruption for reindeer husbandry, a vital part of the culture and livelihood in northern Finland.
The outcomes will now be modelled with interpretation for the agency to facilitate evaluation and modelling of ore and mineral deposits.
John Macfarlane, executive vice president of Bell Geospace, comments: ‘This is the second survey we have undertaken for GTK and it has been successful in producing high quality results. FTG is a valuable source of information for the agency and having observed the logistical demands required, it is a good demonstration of how we work in partnership with our clients.
