The Gold Mining Industry is Geared to Ramp Up

Posted by Sean on Sep 23, 2019

 

At the time of writing this blog post, over 70% of economists are forecasting an economic recession within the next 1-3 years. This forecast is due to all sorts of geopolitical happenings right now. At this point, we’ve probably all have seen the articles on Forbes, the Washington...

Dodging Disaster: How To Monitor Dams & Levees With Geophysical Methods

Posted by Sean on Sep 10, 2019

A quick note before we begin, this blog post is specific to earthen/embankment dams and levees. Geophysical methods aren't used to monitor dams made of concrete, rubber, timber, or non-conductive materials. If you’re questioning if a geophysical survey is needed for your dam, contact us for a quick chat. Our team of geophysicists will be happy to help!

 

Before we discuss geophysical safety measures, let’s look at some reasons why dams and levees fail.

 

Why do dams and...

Bipole-Bipole Array: Electrical Resistivity Methods, Part 11

Posted by Sean on Jul 29, 2019

 

 

It’s been a long journey, but today we’re at the end of our 11-part series discussing Electrical Resistivity Methods. In this final discussion, we’re going to give you an overview of the Bipole-Bipole Array.  

Don’t worry though, we plan to do more long-form series like this in the future about different topics!  

 

And if this is your first time joining us, you’re in for a treat because we’ve also covered all of the following methods:

EarthImager Demonstrations with Hasan Aktarakci and Eduardo Rodrigues

Posted by Sean on Jul 23, 2019

Throughout July, our Madrid office has been hosting webinars to demonstrate the basics of EarthImager™ 1D, 2D, and 3D. Some of our customers—especially those who signed up for webinar alerts—were lucky enough to attend the free webinars. There, they could ask questions and watch the hosts use the software in real time. We shared a lot of useful information during these webinars so we don't want to keep them hidden away! Below, you can find all of the webinars—including the ones hosted in Spanish. 

 

And if you ever...

Quick Tip: Improving Contact Resistance

Posted by Sean on Jun 21, 2019

 

Honestly, this blog post has been a long time coming. Why? Because “How do I improve contact resistance?” is probably one of our top 5 most asked questions from AGI customers. The question comes up in nearly all of our AMA Webinars, seminars, and troubleshooting calls. So we’re finally answering this question in the blog (and AGI Help Desk) so that you’ll always have the answer on hand!

Alright, let’s get into it.
