WHY PHOTOSAT?

SATELLITE SURVEYS ACCURATE TO 20 CM, CONSISTENTLY, ON ANY SITE IN THE WORLD

A published case history for drone survey of a 150km² mine development project in Madagascar is compared to a 357km² PhotoSat survey of a similar project in Peru.

The Drone survey took a 3 person crew, 90 field days to acquire, and 120 days to process on a single processor.

The PhotoSat survey of 357km² in Peru took 8 days to obtain the satellite photos and 11 days to process. This project took 34 days from confirmation of the order to the delivery of the results.

DEEP LEARNING ALTERATION MINERAL MAPPING GENERATE NEW EXPLORATION TARGETS

Two satellite systems and processing methods detect and map a wide range of alteration minerals key to exploration targeting.

For epithermal gold and silver, and porphyry copper exploration, WorldView-3 and ASTER satellite photos are used to map clay, iron oxide, and silica minerals. A wide range of mineral assemblages can be identified with WorldView-3 spectral matching.
