We help companies move into 3D graphics and animation, to set themselves apart from the boring, 2D maps and diagrams that pervade typical presentations. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's an example of some of our recent work...

We’re all about “geology meets high-tech computing”. As far back as 1995, we were giving the latest technology to the mining industry to help you get your message out and attract investment. You deal in 3D data by nature, and static 2D diagrams just don’t cut it anymore. You need 3D animation to stand out and to let investors instantly grasp what you’ve found! We offer a fast, cost-effective, first-class service to analyse and display your data in 3D, with full, high-quality 3D animations. There are two interrelated parts to what we do...

1) 3D Models - Using your geological, geochemical, geophysical and drilling data, we build detailed 3D models of the "zones of mineralisation", and possibly other models (3D magnetics etc). You almost certainly do some 2D/3D modelling in-house already, but a fresh, independent set of expert eyes can be very useful, as many of our customers have found (eg: DGR Global / SolGold, see below). The output of this is that you get all of the MapInfo 2D and Discover 3D files for your geologists to load up and look at, use to interactively plan new drillholes and so on. Every company we've dealt with has loved this service, enabling their geo's to view all of the data in 3D and plan their future exploration with a degree of precision like never before. Drilling is expensive, really expensive, which makes every unnecessary drillhole very costly. Take the guesswork out and avoid unnecessary drilling by visualising your results in 3D early, while your drilling program proceeds. Don’t waste drillholes – drill where it really matters, drill where it works! You’d be amazed how much money you’ll save.

2) Fly-Through 3D Animations - Using the 3D models constructed above, or your own 3D models, plus other items such as terrain data, satellite photos, drill core photos, 3D pit designs etc, we produce polished fly-through 3D animations for displaying at conferences and on your company's website – ideal for impressing investors and stockbrokers. While you probably do some in-house modelling, chances are you don’t have the people, tools or experience to do high-quality animations, and this is not a place to mess about – the animations need to look good to impress investors! Outsource to experts and save employment costs, expensive software and a steep, painful learning curve. We can even deliver several versions of your animation if you want, such as a long version for your website and conference booth plus shorter versions of key parts for your PowerPoint presentation (eg: a satellite zoom-in showing location and tenements, a second for the surface geochem, a third with the underground drillholes and mineralisation, a fourth with pit designs and infrastructure).

Some Examples...


Here are some examples to get you thinking about the features you might like in your 3D animation...

KBL's flagship Sorby Hills project in north Western Australia represents the largest undeveloped near-surface silver/lead/zinc resource in Australia, and is due to break ground in 2014. Click to play...

Originally the star of the 2011 Brisbane Mining Resources convention, this updated animation shows the Nakru and Simuku joint ventures between Coppermoly and Barrick Gold in PNG, including impressive 3D IP and 3D magnetics. Click to play...

--------

The star of a recent Sydney Mining Club meeting, this animation covers Chesser Resources' promising Kestanelik gold project in Turkey, including open-cut pit designs and processing plant infrastructure. Click to play...

--------

KBL's Mineral Hill mine in the Cobar Basin, NSW, shows several different voxel block models and extensive underground mine workings, along with exciting new drilling results and processing plant videos. Click to play...

--------

Empire's Yuinmery project in WA demonstrates a 3D satellite zoom-in flying past nearby mines, detailed 3D models of zones of mineralisation, comparison to an older JORC model, drill core photos and preliminary pit designs. Click to play...

--------

This long animation covers Orbis Gold's projects in Burkina Faso, West Africa, and is timed to match a lengthy, 16 minute presentation, rather than the shorter style normally used in web videos and booth displays. Click to play...

Here is a subset of a longer animation, showing just a single model of a zone of mineralisation (SolGold's Crunchie deposit), in a short, one minute animation. Subsets like this are ideal for placing into PowerPoint presentations. Click to play...

As just one example of how you can benefit from 3D modelling and animation on multiple fronts, in 2011 we completed a large project for D’Aguilar Gold (now DGR Global / SolGold, see above). The job covered 4 years of drilling work on 3 projects (Crunchie, Kauffmans and Homestead). The 3D animations attracted great attention and impressed investors, and the 3D modelling delineated several mineralised zones, including a possible large untested zone – easy to miss in the mass of data, but obvious when viewed in 3D! The models were then used to precision-target new drillholes, which produced outstanding results, dramatically increasing the size of the defined mineralisation!

Our reputation for quality, reliability and on-time delivery, earned over the past 18 years, means we won't let you down.
