Getting the 'Hole' Picture

ESG Canada is proud to announce a new computer program that provides one-stop shopping for geotechnical engineers who need their underground observations recorded and stored in one convenient spot. The ROCKPRO ROCK MECHANICS DATABASE is the rock mechanic's right hand man, providing the kind of organization that increases production efficiency and allows for the optimum in mine safety.

The standard ROCKPRO computer database records and stores and even summarizes every possible bit of information ground control teams need: general observations, ground support evaluation and unusual occurrences. It provides a permanent record of entire mine history crucial for future design and from which government and internal reports, complete with corporate logo, can be generated automatically.

ROCKPRO observation forms offer the ability to assign coordinates to the location where each observation was made. When pulled in to a 3D program, ROCKPRO gives you a clear picture of every critical observation ever made in your mine. Future ROCKPRO developments will include custom forms, Internet access, and the ability to enter data directly into the system while underground.

ESG Canada, the six year old Engineering Seismology Group in Kingston, Ontario produces seismic monitoring systems that locate and an analyze micro-earthquakes for industrial applications.

Acquisition Prime Surveys Ltd. Sylvan 3D Seismic Program Nearly Complete

Prime Surveys Ltd. announced that acquisition of their 655 square kilometer Sylvan 3D seismic program is nearly complete. Tom Rothwell, Impact 2000, Raymac Surveys, and Polaris Explore r have helped to make sure that this project will be completed on time and on budget.

One of the largest non-exclusive participation surveys to be undertaken this season, field operations will conclude by the middle of March, a record ninety days from start and an accomplishment considered impossible by many in the industry.

Prime has had one of their more successful seasons in recent years due to this project and the acquisition of a 2D regional grid over the unexplored Canadian Forces Base at Suffield, an area where unprecedented land sale results are expected in about three weeks time.
