New NSERC Engage Grant

Devbrio is pleased to announce a new collaborative relationship with Prof. Claude D’Amours, University of Ottawa, and Prof. Adel Omar Dahmane, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, through a NSERC Engage Grant.

Devbrio in British Columbia

Devbrio will be operating a SkyTEM survey in British Columbia. SkyTEM has been awarded a competitive Geoscience BC contract for an airborne magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical survey in the Peace Region. The Peace Project is a collaborative effort that will help to increase the understanding of surface and groundwater resources in the Peace Region. Peace Project partners include the BC Oil and Gas Commission, the BC Oil and Gas Research and Innovation Society, Conoco Phillips Canada, Progress Energy Canada Ltd., the Province of British Columbia, and the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT).

Devbrio in California

Devbrio Géophysique will be operating a SkyTEM airborne magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical survey at the Fort Irwin National Training Center (NTC) in California. The purpose of the survey is to map the complex geological framework, lithologic variations and structural controls (faults and folds) on groundwater within a series of basins within portions of the (NTC).

Devbrio in Nunavut

Devbrio Géophysique is currently collaborating with ClearView Geophysics of Brampton, ON to acquire IMAGEM Ground TDEM in combination with a Cesium Magnetometer in Nunavut for a large-scale snowmobile-towed project. Productions rates of 40-80 km per day can be acquired depending on terrain.

Devbrio in Nebraska

Exploration Resources International Inc. (XRI) is conducting an Airborne Electromagnetic (AEM) Survey under contract to the Eastern Nebraska Water Resources Assessment (ENWRA). ENWRA is a coalition of six Natural Resources Districts (NRD’s) in the glaciated area of eastern Nebraska Including Lewis in Clark, Lower Elkhorn, Papio-Missouri, Lower Platte North, Lower Platte South, and Nemaha. XRI will collect the AEM data using the SkyTEM Aps.

A Future in Science and Engineering

Devbrio participated in A Future in Science and Engineering promotional video about Prof. Claire Samson of Carleton University. Many people wonder – what do scientists and engineers actually do? You might be surprised to find out! Careers in science and engineering are diverse and exciting, offering plenty of opportunity for travel, innovation and teamwork. Devbrio Géophysique and Prof. Samson collaborated as part of an NSERC Engage program in research and development on geophysical survey tools.

Devbrio in Northern Quebec

The IMAGEM system was selected for graphite exploration at Lac Tétépisca because of its ability to detect good conductors. The Lac Tétépisca survey covered 7.5 km2 of rough topography terrain in the Canadian Precambrian Shield with a line spacing of 100 m. A MaxMin survey was conducted in parallel with IMAGEM in some areas of the survey grid to serve as a basis for comparison. Both the MaxMin and IMAGEM systems achieved a similar daily production of approximately 4 line-km but topography variations had a more deleterious effect on the MaxMin data. The IMAGEM data, which requires minimal processing and can be quickly displayed, featured numerous prominent anomalies interpreted to coincide with graphite deposits.
