The webinar focuses on semi-airborne electromagnetics, a technique utilizing ground-based transmitters and a passive airborne receiver towed by a multicopter to detect conductive subsurface targets. This approach offers increased penetration depths compared to conventional methods, and the transmitter configuration can be tailored for optimal target response. Results from a case study that characterizes the Hope ore body in Namibia are presented. This well-explored copper-rich deposit with known dimensions provides an ideal subject for this drone-based exploration method.
