The company conducted three individual types of surveys, including the ZTEM (electromagnetic), VTEM (electromagnetic) and an aerial gravity system. These surveys were mainly funded by third parties under different option contracts. Fugro Consultants and Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys were engaged to perform the surveys, completed in the fall of 2011. Condor Consulting of Colorado will conduct further geophysical work that includes processing, analytical and improved interpretive analysis.
