Collaboration between Bell Geospace and KKME
Kalahari Key Mineral Exploration Company (Pty) Ltd. (“KKME”) has signed a non-disclosure agreement with UK-based Bell Geospace Ltd to allow them to integrate and analyse all of KKME’s airborne and ground geophysical data with the high resolution Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) data acquired by Zeppelin airship over KKME’s 3 license areas in the Molopo Farms area of southern Botswana. Cape Town-based NRGTM is providing Bell Geospace Ltd with the data acquired during their helicopter-supported geophysics for KKME along the Jwaneng-Makopong Shear/Feeder Zone.
Using satellite-based Aster Thermal Imagery by LWIR Spectral Analysis, as well as electromagnetic conductivity (EM) analysis based on Synthetic Aperture Radar is part of KKME’s nickel exploration programme of the Molopo Farms Complex.
Aster Funds Ltd (“AFL”) is a company that has been set up to commercialize specific mathematical algorithms and the skill sets that derive from conceiving, designing and testing them in the context of satellite-based Aster Thermal Imagery by LWIR Spectral Analysis, as well as electromagnetic conductivity (EM) analysis based on Synthetic Aperture Radar. AFL has recently added two additional service products QDFC (Quadratic Discriminant Function Classifier)/LDFC (Linear Discriminant Function Classifier) Target mapping and enhanced resolution SWIR spectral surveys. All four offer excellent integration with traditional exploration methodologies to accelerate mineral exploration.
The spectral survey area for “KKME” approximates to 5,000 sq. kilometers which includes 3 mineral exploration licenses and airborne and ground-based geophysical survey areas commissioned by KKME. This work will compliment all of the high-resolution airborne and ground geophysical surveys completed by KKME. The geological knowledge acquired by KKME, including the logs of the two new boreholes drilled into the Jwaneng-Makopong Shear/Feeder Zone will form the basis of interpreting the spectral survey.
