How STRYDE is revolutionising the mining industry

The process of exploring for mineral deposits through seismic data acquisition has previously been perceived as too difficult and expensive to achieve for mining geologists and exploration teams. However, STRYDE is revolutionising the mining industry through its reliable end-to-end solution for capturing and analysing seismic data.

Our innovative nodal technology allows for cost-effective mineral exploration at depths where surface drilling would be highly expensive. Not only does it provide a quicker and safer approach to data acquisition with less resources and expenditure required, our turnkey solution delivers a clear geological model and an accurate interpretation of the seismic data gathered as its end product.


"We chose STRYDE due to the data quality that was able to be acquired from a lightweight, simple, and low-cost wireless system.

“Compared with other nodal systems, the STRYDE system is much lower priced and its impact on operational efficiency is higher, and this is even more magnified when compared to wired geophone systems! We look forward to using STRYDE again soon."

About our turnkey solution

At STRYDE, we recognise and understand the constraints faced by mining industry stakeholders when it comes to budgetary and internal resource limitations during seismic projects and have created tailored solutions that accommodate the evolving needs of the mining sector.

From full survey design to low-cost seismic technology, fast-track seismic imaging and interpretation solutions, we provide our customers with affordable, high-resolution 2D and 3D seismic data that is designed to de-risk decision making, optimise drilling and production operations, and add value to your portfolio.

Survey types and their benefits...


Ambient Noise Tomography surveys

ANT, otherwise known as passive seismic data acquisition relies on ambient seismic noise to create coarse 2D or 3D velocity models of the subsurface. Ambient noise can be anthropic (noise that originates from human activities, such as noise from nearby vehicles) or natural (background noise produced from the natural events such as wind).

Low-effort seismic

Seismic sensors are used to record and measure the ambient noise over a period of time and is a low-cost, low-environmental impact alternative to conventional active seismic data acquisition which requires a source (such as a vibrator truck) to record the seismic data.


2D active seismic surveys

2D seismic reflection data offers depth resolution and spatial coverage over your prospect, features that are not available by any other techniques such as direct sampling or drilling. As a result, mining geologists can benefit from enhanced precision of geological modelling and increase the likelihood of successful drilling by uncovering faults, lithological contacts, shears, alteration zones, massive sulphide deposits and pegmatites.

Enhancing exploration value

This process of using 2D seismic reflection data ultimately allows mining and exploration teams to present a clear visual representation of the subsurface, and demonstrate scope for much deeper mineralisation than could previously be known. As a result, mining companies can increase the value of a mineral exploration project to their investors and have a greater chance of receiving investor buy-in.

3D active seismic surveys

3D reflection seismic data plays a pivotal role in enhancing the value of mining exploration and mine expansion projects by enabling precise drilling target identification.

STRYDE is dedicated to delivering low cost 3D cubes at a price point that is affordable for all types of organisations within the mining industry, from small exploration stage companies through to international mining operators.

De-risk exploration

3D surveys can help streamline the search process, reducing the number of boreholes needed for successful mining discoveries and resource delineation. This distinct advantage sets 3D reflection seismic apart from other exploration methods, offering efficient targeting capabilities for mining exploration.

The benefits STRYDE can unlock for your mining project

Reduce costs icon
Cost-effective exploration

Our technology unlocks the ability to conduct mining exploration at depths beyond which surface drilling is prohibitively expensive. STRYDE offers the most affordable seismic node on the market today, allowing companies to save significant costs when it comes to equipment leasing or purchasing.

Unmatched portability

Unlike bulky cable-based systems, STRYDE Nodes™ can be air-freighted to virtually any location and transported easily in small vehicles. This opens up the possibility of conducting seismic operations in remote or unconventional locations, whether that be mountainous terrain or desert environments.

Expedite icon
Expedited data retrieval

By coupling our advanced nodal technology, efficient field operation and our fast-track data processing solutions, we are able to quickly deliver interpretation ready seismic data to our clients, meaning critical decisions can be made faster than ever before.

Improved data quality

By making the deployment of high-channel counts needed for high-trace density data an affordable option, we can generate better quality subsurface images to de-risk decision making further.
