Frequently Asked Questions


Below are some frequently asked questions about using seismic in hard rock exploration and mining. Our business development team is happy to answer any further questions you have.

Does HiSeis seismic work in hard rock environments?

Seismic technology has been proven to work in many different hard rock environments across multiple commodities around the globe.

What exactly can HiSeis seismic help us see?

Seismic helps in seeing lithological changes but also structural features and alteration zones.

How much does it cost to carry out a 3D survey?

There are many variables which can affect the cost of a 3D survey. HiSeis employs a de-risking process which is designed to mitigate technical and commercial risk for clients.

How deep can HiSeis see?

We can survey down to 3km. Seismic is the primary method used by Geoscience Australia and other similar government organisations around the world to map the earth’s crust at depth.

Can HiSeis map steep dips?

Yes, seismic can map steep dips with sufficient survey coverage and features can be identified during interpretation through multiple techniques.

What is the typical area HiSeis can do a survey over?

There is no typical when it comes to seismic. Many variables affect the size of the survey including depth you want to image, geometry of the features and tenement boundaries.
