Aggregate exploration around Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon
Project Description

JDMA was retained to conduct desktop air photo exploration for sand and gravel prospects within an approximate 80km radius of three major western Canadian market areas. Study tasks included compilation of regional geological data from available maps and reports and ground water well logs, examination of the study areas using two ages and scales of stereoscopic air photos, visual field reconnaissance of prospective areas and geophysical testing of the more-promising prospects. Prospect areas were outlined on air photo and topographic maps and described with respect to landform type and aggregate potential and ranked for follow-up field testing. 20 years later the client continues to utilize the study results.
