Case Histories

We have selected MANY case histories derived from various sources including the work of Mr. Shives, his colleagues at the Geological Survey of Canada, studies done in collaboration with Provincial/Territorial geological surveys or international partners, projects completed for GamX Inc. clients, and other sources. The examples illustrate a broad range of useful applications derived from decades of interpretation and field follow-up to airborne surveys.

These, and many more examples have been formally published in technical paper and journals and are presented in more detail in the workshops offered by GamX Inc.

Your questions, comments, feedback regarding the case histories presented, are always welcome: please Contact Us.

This selection of examples will be updated periodically.
