Ocean mining exploration services
OFG provides deep water exploration capabilities for Submarine Massive Sulfide (SMS) exploration. We do ROV based electromagnetic and magnetic, precision deepwater bathymetric, and ocean bottom gravity surveys to map hydrothermal mineralization on the ocean floor for the mineral exploration community.
OFG integrates and operates geophysical systems on ROV and AUV platforms to provide cost effective exploration data for SMS exploration programs
OFG has cooperation agreements with key providers of specialized geophysical services and equipment in the marine and O&G business sectors to provide cost effective turnkey services for mineral exploration at all stages of an ocean mining project, from regional exploration to mining pilot studies.
The company has an active program developing new sensors for mineral exploration in the deep ocean. We have developed an ROV deployable ocean bottom gravity system, and a high powered deepwater seismic source for mineral exploration and geotechnical problems. We will be operating an ISE explorer class ISE AUV equipped for SMS exploration in 2012.
Aug 26, 2007 First commercial electromagnetic survey for submarine massives sulfides at the Solwara 1 deposit. The survey was completed by Ocean Floor Geophysics Inc. for Nautilus Minerals. Fifty two line kilometers of survey were completed in 1500m water depth. The OFG Mark 1 EM system was built and deployed in 110 days.
OFG currently operates the Mark 3 EM system.
