Specialists in geophysical interpretation and target identification on exploration projects

Xpotential was established in 2004 as a geophysical consultancy specialising in the processing and inversion of potential field data. Now wholly part of RES, we adopt a multi-disciplinary target generation approach, employing structural and economic ecologists on most of our projects. Results are visualised in a 3D environment providing the framework for a geologically driven interpretation of geophysical data.

INTERPRET

Combined geophysical and structural geological interpretation Xpotential offers an integrated interpretation product, combining geophysical and structural geological interpretations of airborne geophysical and remote sensing datasets. Incorporating a structural interpretation with geophysical domains allows for the generation of lithostructural base maps from airborne geophysical datasets.

DISCOVER

Target generation and area prioritisation for a variety of mineralisation styles.

As a group Xpotential combines expertise from complimentary geoscientific fields forming an effective exploration team. We specialise in target generation and area prioritisation for a variety of commodities including including: porphyry/epithermal copper-gold; Pb-Zn MVT, SEDEX and VHMS, Stratiform Cu; IOCG; NiS, Iron; Birimian Gold; and kimberlites. As a result, the group is uniquely positioned to offer an integrated interpretation and target generation product.
