Global UAV Technologies Ltd.announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Pioneer Aerial Surveys (‘Pioneer Aerial’), has signed a UAV-MAG™ survey contract in Chile. The survey will be performed for Quantum Pacific Exploration (QPX) and is scheduled to start in August. This marks the first contract for a UAV-MAG™ survey in South America and the third international survey for Pioneer Aerial.
“The QPX contract marks a significant step in Pioneer Aerial’s acceptance as the leader in UAV-MAG™ surveys worldwide. We are excited to develop a strong relationship with QPX as we continue to grow our international business operations”, stated Michael Burns, President of Pioneer Aerial Surveys, “upon successful completion of this first survey, Pioneer Aerial will have the option of flying additional surveys for QPX this season.”
In addition Pioneer Aerial recently completed a 525 line km survey for Silver Standard Resources at their Seabee Gold Operation in Northern Saskatchewan. Pioneer Aerial flew a high resolution, low-elevation survey over the Santoy deposit that overlapped previous airborne data. The UAV-MAG™ survey provided higher resolution results, at significant cost savings compared to conventional airborne or ground based survey methods. Silver Standard was pleased with the results and is interested in using Pioneer Aerial’s UAV-MAG™ survey technology again in the future.
“Pioneer Aerial has developed a game-changing technique whereby ground-mag quality data can be acquired at cheaper cost without line-cutting and in only a fraction of the time,” stated Anders Carlson, Exploration Manager – Seabee Gold Operation and Saskatchewan Projects.
