Searcher Diversifies into Mining Sector

Searcher, a leading service provider of geoscience products for oil and gas exploration and production companies, has announced its expansion into the mining sector with the completion of an airborne exploration survey in Queensland, on behalf of Longreach Mineral Exploration Pty Ltd (Longreach). 

The new airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical survey was acquired over Longreach’s exploration permit (EPM27423), located approximately 40 km north-east of Clermont, Queensland, Australia. The survey covers 387 km2 and includes 8,770 km of data acquisition lines.

Searcher were contracted by Longreach to assist with project management. Searcher’s input included project planning and survey design, sourcing and contracting MAGSPEC Airborne Surveys Pty Ltd as the principal contractor, for management and quality control of the acquisition and processing and interpretation of the final data.

This is another good example of how upstream service companies are diversifying and applying transferable skills to other business sectors.
