Innovative geophysical technology “Deep Vision” was developed on the base of deep scientific investigations of the USSR. The uniqueness of our technology is the complex approach comprising remote sensing and on-site prospecting. In both cases, we utilize the same physical principle, which is called “superweak nuclear magnetic resonance interaction” (NMR). It was discovered before, and now we proved, that analog photo bears information not only about visible objects but also about hidden objects, which leave their electromagnetic footprint on the negatives of such an analog photo. So, we started to develop search method, which would allow making the search of any mineral deposit (oil, gas, gold, coal and any other mineral) only by means of analog satellite photo. Therefore, in such course of action, we found rare photos from the USSR old satellites. The quantity of the revealed photo is huge, which allows us to conduct a remote sensing for almost all parts of the world. Using satellite photos, we can conduct a search for mineral deposits quickly and precisely, and narrow area of investigation from the thousands of square kilometers up to deposit borders. After that, using our mobile equipment, we are able to define precise contours of the deposit, precise depth of its bedding and create 3D-shape of the deposit’s body.
Below we want to explain how our remote sensing system and on-site system works at different stage of the investigation.
For the start of investigation, we need to know coordinates of area and type of searched minerals. Based on the coordinates we order negatives of analog satellite photos. We have a big library of different type minerals samples, and we use our sample for the investigation. If we do not have samples of searched mineral, we try to find or pure mineral in free access, or ask from client near 100 gr. of ore, which contains this mineral.
We order a few negatives for the same place and try to have negatives which were shot from the different angle of view. Negatives with a different angle of shooting allow us to calculate the preliminary depth of bedding, using the deviation of the contours of the found anomaly on the surface. The sample of negative you can see below.
At the next image, you can see the zone of interest. Sometimes we need to use a few negatives to cover the full area of search.
At the next step, we need to do a “sandwich”. We put together negative, specially prepared gel wafer with addition inside of searched substance and sensitive plate for registration of response spectrum. After we put this “sandwich” in the zone of laser beam, produced by the RGB-series multi-wavelength laser system. Moving the laser beam line by line from top of “sandwich” to the bottom, we register coordinates of the responce spectrum on the sensitive plate. The idea of search you can see below.
For obtainment of reliable results, we are doing a lot of iteration and statistical treatment. So, at the end of the treatment, we obtained spots as a prediction of an anomaly for the on-site investigation. Here we found some trick, which allows us to calculate the preliminary depth of bedding. Using few images, we obtained different results of placement the found spots. Having deviation, the angle of shooting and distance to the surface for each image, we are able to calculate preliminary depth. Of cause, it must be proved by the on-site investigation, but the Customer can have a preliminary estimation of bedding depth.
Moving forward, we digitize received results and create maps of the area with found anomalies.
At expedition, we need to review preliminary results and obtain more exact data about borders and depths. We planned a route with tasks to check the preliminary borders and conduct point investigation.
Maps with result tracks
Green lines show the presence signal from the substance, blue lines show the absence of a signal from the substance. Our data show, that is not possible to go everywhere we need to check borders, we limited by roads.
The idea of point investigation is shown at the next picture.
After the point investigation, we obtained column with following data.
Based on point investigations, we are able to build underground cuts. More point we will have, more correct cut we will build. The back side of accuracy is the time and cost. For one expedition day, we are able to investigate 5-6 points.
We hope that our explanation will help you better understand the principle of work and practical implementation of our technology.
