Why use seismic for mining?


Seismic methods can play a crucial role in mining exploration by providing valuable information about the subsurface geology and identifying potential mineral deposits. Here are some ways seismic techniques can assist in mining exploration:

Image Subsurface Structures

Seismic surveys involve sending sound waves into the ground and recording the reflections that bounce back. By analyzing these reflections, geoscientists can create detailed images of subsurface structures, including rock formations, faults, and other geological features. This helps in understanding the overall geological framework of an area and identifying potential mineral-bearing zones.

Delineate Mineral Deposits

Different minerals exhibit distinct seismic signatures, meaning they reflect and transmit seismic waves differently. By studying the seismic response of known mineral deposits, researchers can establish characteristic patterns or anomalies associated with mineralization. These patterns can then be used to identify similar signatures in seismic data acquired over unexplored areas, potentially indicating the presence of undiscovered mineral deposits.

Detect Faults and Fractures

Faults and fractures can serve as conduits for mineral-rich fluids, and their presence can significantly influence the formation and concentration of mineral deposits. Seismic surveys can help in mapping these subsurface structures by identifying the disruptions in the seismic reflections caused by faulting or fracturing. Understanding the distribution and geometry of faults and fractures aids in locating potential mineralization sites.

Assess Rock Properties

Seismic data can provide information about the physical properties of rocks, such as their density, porosity, and elastic properties. This information is crucial for evaluating the potential economic viability of mineral deposits. For example, seismic data can help estimate the volume and quality of mineral-bearing rocks, determine the extent of ore bodies, and assess the feasibility of extraction techniques.

Plan Drilling Programs

Seismic surveys aid in optimizing drill programs by providing valuable insights into the subsurface before drilling begins. By understanding the geological structures and potential mineralization zones identified through seismic data, mining companies can plan and target their drilling efforts more effectively, reducing costs and increasing the chances of successful exploration.

Nodal seismic acquisition
How we can help

Improve your subsurface understanding with seismic using small, lightweight seismic receiver nodes

At STRYDE, we help companies fast-track high-density seismic acquisition with state-of-the-art nodal technology and data processing solutions.

We’ve brought onshore subsurface imaging out of the dark ages for companies seeking to to identify and scan the geological environment for the presence of minerals.


Node vs geophones 1
How we do it

Cutting-edge wireless technology

Traditionally, land seismic in the Middle East has been acquired through complex cabled geophones or large nodal devices that are restrictive, risky, and expensive solutions for seismic acquisition.

The use of miniature, low-cost nodal devices like STRYDE’s Nodes™ enables companies to deploy significantly more receiver devices at an affordable price point.

This results in denser seismic and elimination of blind spots, helping fast-track and better reconstruction of the subsurface image during processing to deliver a high-resolution seismic images.

"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."
