High-power transmitter to unlock mineral resources

A South Australian engineering business has been awarded a $50,000 government grant to develop a high-powered geophysical transmitter system that has the potential to further unlock the state’s mineral and energy resources.

Funded through the state government’s Innovation Voucher Program, Zonge Engineering and Research will work with CIRA Pty Ltd to develop, prototype and test a modular-style geophysical transmitter that is cooler, lighter and more efficient, but with higher power outputs that could enable geological analysis to greater depths.

The project will enable the company to expand its services and tender for work throughout Australia and overseas, as well as take on more local work and employ more staff.

“Zonge and CIRA are honoured to have been awarded funding to develop and test a high-powered modular transmitter system to improve our geophysical depth of investigation,” said the managing director of Zonge Engineering and Research, Kelly Keates.

“The improved system will be easier to transport to any location in the world, including remote and rugged terrains, and the high-powered option will assist in receiving better responses for deeper resources.”
