Archimedes News

Archimedes has prepared information on the 2020 Offshore Acreage Release showing Acreage Boundaries, Wells, Seismic Coverage and Available Magnetic Data in the Gippsland, Otway, Bonaparte, Browse.and Northern Carnarvon Basins. See link below right.

Archimedes' successful exploration techniques for mapping Pseudo-Seismic Horizons from magnetic data in sedimentary basins were featured in a previous edition of the GEO ExPro App, ‘New Technologies’.

  • Welcome to Archimedes

    Archimedes’ core service is the processing and interpretation of magnetic, gravity and potential field gradiometry data using its unique techniques for the petroleum and mineral exploration & development industries.

    Archimedes began in Australia and initially performed work in Australia, New Zealand and PNG for petroleum industry clients such as Woodside Energy, Santos, Oil Company of Australia, Apache Energy and Origin Energy, covering many basins throughout the region. During this time, several studies were also conducted over large areas to assist the mineral exploration industry.

    Archimedes later expanded considerably into the international arena, working for clients such as Shell (in several locations), BP (In several locations), Hess and many others in basins around the United Kingdom, Western Siberia, Mongolia, North & South America, Gulf of Mexico, Gulf of Suez, Nile Delta, Red Sea, Libya, Morocco, Gabon, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia.

    Archimedes’ head office is in Adelaide, Australia and has representatives in Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Brazil and Egypt.

    Archimedes has extended its services into the minerals industry, applying its unique techniques to mapping basement under sedimentary cover or sub-volcanics, locating potential IOGC and ISGC type prospects and massive sulphide deposits as well as alteration zones, basement faults and shear zones, and deep crustal structures that may provide pathways for mineral-rich fluids. Archimedes has conducted many projects in the Gawler Craton, Stuart Shelf, Mount Woods Inlier, Peake and Denison Domain, Mt Isa Province, Kimberley Block, Albany-Fraser Domain, Tennant Creek and in East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
