Our Presentations

Real-time Decision Making in Exploration

Presented by Dr. Michelle Carey - General Manager - IMDEX Product Development and Gervais Perron - Principal Geoscientist

From your survey tools to geochemical and petrophysical sensors, learn how new technologies can help you to make better real-time decisions in the field or back in the office. The presentation includes a demonstration of our new link with Seequent’s Central 3D platform. Those interested in real-time geochemical analysis are also welcome to view our in-field geoanalyis equipment which will be set up in the room.

Developing a Workflow for Oriented Core Success

Presented by Chris Brown - Oriented Targeting Solutions

In this workshop, we’re focussing on utilizing the most effective hardware and software technologies to allow for real-time targeting. We look at strategies and processes such as quality control, query-able database structure, real-time visualization, and importing of validated and domained structural data into the 3D workspace.

A New Wave of Drilling Optimisation

Presented by Troy Giesler - IMDEX Global Sales Director

Processes in drilling have hardly changed in 30 years - so what have we come up with to aid efficiency in a time where we are drilling deeper, have more environmental restrictions, greater data requirements, higher safety and quality standards? In this workshop, we look at the tools of the future and those that are here now that are going to impact exploration drillers on the ground.
