Founded in 1988 by Geophysicist Philip McClelland, Ultramag Geophysics is one of the leading companies in geophysical exploration and geo-tech engineering in Australia.
With a proven track record of driving innovation and investing in R&D, we lead the technological curve to deliver to the market new surveying and radar technology that reduces significant costs and improves both quality and service.
With clients based nationally and internationally, Ultramag offers data processing, interpretation and survey design services to the following industries:
With over 90% of the market share in ground magnetic surveys for coal exploration in Australia and over 520 clients worldwide, Ultramag is strongly positioned to capitalise on all on-going mining activities and cost reduction initiatives.
Ultramag is highly experienced in many applications including mining, geotechnical/void detection and environmental exploration.
Even the odd shipwreck search!
Ultramag offer best practice airborne solutions through our leading Industry partners.
We have a vast range of techniques for any job size.
Being at the forefront of high resolution geophysics for as long as we have means our technical offering is unmatched.
Our robust custom solutions and R&D department make sure we deliver to our clients, whatever their needs.
We stand by our geophysical interpretation and in an effort to offer a truly complete exploration package
to our clients, we now offer drilling services.
"The DGPR is a new technology, it will have broad ranging applications in the search and delineation of mineral deposits for many different commodities and deposit styles as well as civil geotechnical engineering applications.
The results are not modified to fit an idealised model of a predefined target, they reflect real unbiased geological features."
“Thank you once again for the excellent Deep Ground Penetrating Radar (DGPR) work completed on the Torrington Project in New South Wales. We are very keen to see further data acquisition and interpretation for this project, as we can see some significant opportunity to better direct drill hole placement and orientation.
Further to the discussion and your demonstration of the efficacy of the DGPR technique in the coal industry.
As you are aware, we are exploring a large coal deposit in the Galilee Basin, currently containing 1.69Bt in Indicated and Inferred JORC (2012) resources. We are very keen to explore the use of this technique to determine whether we can utilise it to address potential faulting within the deposit, as you have successfully done so in other areas. Further, we are anxious to determine whether the technique can be utilised to identify the Line Of Oxidation of coal seams as they progress up through the lower limit of weathering.
We believe this technique may have the potential to save us a significant number of drill holes if it proves efficacious.
We would like to signal our strong intention to engage your company in these data acquisition, and further, to provide testing and interpretive services to ensure the most robust use of the data.”

“Ultramag Geophysics Pty Ltd offered to run several lines over the main area of the Kookabookra Gold Project using their newly acquired Deep Ground Penetrating Radar to see if this system could define the nature of the gold mineralisation. The gold mineralisation at Kookabookra that consists of <1% sulphides and contains no magnetic minerals does not present a good target for either electrical or magnetic geophysical methods.
Four 250m long lines were completed over the Mannix Gold Target in 4hrs. Three lines were run EW and one line was NS. All lines defined a possible deep (80-200m) intrusive body that is positioned directly below the best gold intersections in the shallow drilling mentioned above. This intrusive body now represents a significant drill target that could host a large gold system.
PWEA believes that this Deep Ground Penetrating Radar represents a geophysical method that has little or no setup costs and has the ability to find mineralisation that could be missed by electrical and magnetic methods. It is a very exciting development for mineral exploration.”

“Galaxy Resources has used Ultramag DGPR technology, systems and interpretation successfully in its regional pegmatite exploration programmes in Western Australia’s south west. It is an innovative, rapid and non-ground disturbing technique suitable for both sill and dyke-like intrusions, with simple application and capable of coverage from 2-10km per day. Detailed target generation and interpretation provides a good evidenced based basis for follow up drilling and sampling”
