Equipment

New Era Geophysics owns four high-technology magnetometers and some of the latest IP and Resistivity instruments. 

We give value for money by using the latest technical ground geophysics equipment on the market, which is operated by industry known professionals.

GEM GSM-19 TW Proton Precession GPS walk-magnetometer (PPM) and GEM GSM-19 T Proton Precession base-magnetometer (PPM)

Technical Specifications

  • Sensitivity – 0.15 nT @ 1 Hz
  • Resolution – 0.01 nT
  • Absolute Accuracy – +/- 0.2 nT
  • Dynamic Range – 20,000 to 120,000 nT
  • Gradient Tolerance – Over 7,000 nT/m
  • Sampling Rate – 60+, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0.5 sec
  • Operating Temperature – -40 to +50 degrees C

New Era Geophysics own 1 GSM-19 TW and 1 GSM-19 T walk and base magnetometers.
The instruments are very similar and both have:

  • Highly effective proton energization and physics
  • Three data acquisition modes (walking, mobile and base)
  • Large-volume on-board storage and memory
  • High resolution, integrated GPS saving time and money 

The GSM-19 TW walk-magnetometer also has:

  • A unique implementation of electronics and physics to provide a nearly continuous record of the ground over which the instrument is carried.
  • Up to 0.5 second sampling to accommodate surveys at a walking pace.

Technical Specifications

  • Sensitivity: 0.022 nT @ 1 Hz, (0.015 nT option)
  • Resolution: 0.01 nT
  • Absolute Accuracy: +/- 0.1 nT
  • Dynamic Range: 20,000 to 120,000 nT
  • Gradient Tolerance: Over 10,000 nT/m
  • Sampling Intervals: 60+, 5, 3, 2, 1, 0.5, 0.2 sec
  • Operating Temperature: -40°C to +50°C

New Era Geophysics own 2 GSM-19W Overhouser type walk magnetometers.

  • The system is a super-charged proton magnetometer that uses a special mixture for energiation and measurement
  • These types of magnetometers are a primary standard in mineral exploration, proving themselves for high sensitivity, absolute accuracy and dependability

Benefits include:

  • Lightweight and portable for walking surveys. Can be deployed anywhere, no matter how remote
  • Optional pulse or continuous operation; giving the option of single data point capture or continuous, active recording
  • Low power consumption giving prolonged operation on a single charge
  • Omni-directional sensor
  • Fast sampling of up to 5 Hz; can be used on a vehicle such as an ATV 
  • Integrated highly accurate GPS
