SGH (SPATIOTEMPORAL GEOCHEMICAL HYDROCARBONS)

A cost-effective technique of prioritizing targets and delineation of mineral targets through thick layers of cover rock and overburden.

SGH has been successful in difficult terrain and collected samples can be near surface soils, peat, humus, till, sand, submerged lake-bottom sediments, and even snow. The SGH procedure provides a highly focused and sensitive method which measures compounds in the C5-C17 range down to the low parts-per-trillion (ppt).

SGH is used frequently for the following commodities: Gold, Kimberlites, Copper, VMS, Nickel, SEDEX, Polymetalic, PGE, REE, Wet Gas, Oil, Coal

The SGH procedure provides a highly focused and sensitive method which measures compounds in the C5-C17 range in concentrations down to the low parts-per-trillion (ppt). It is an extractive procedure which releases organic compounds adsorbed onto near surface samples.

Actlabs’ research and development into the applicability of SGH for exploration has resulted in the availability of a cost-effective technique of prioritizing targets, which can be used in tandem with geophysics to improve your success rate.

SGH Advantages:

  • Over 160 hydrocarbon compounds ensures that SGH anomalies are positively identified
  • Practical sample collection, handling and shipping protocols with one trip to the field reduces costs
  • Robust method – SGH is uninfluenced by cultural activity
  • Backed by over 25 years experience in GC/MS related research & development
  • Delineation of mineral targets through thick layers of cover rock and overburden
  • SGH has been successful in difficult terrain. Samples can be near surface soils, peat, humus, till, sand, submerged lake-bottom sediments, and even snow.

All SGH submissions receive an interpretation. Price includes interpretation thus relative or UTM coordinates must accompany the samples when submitted (50 sample minimum per order)
