about Subterrane

Developing tomorrow's technology from today's intellectual property portfolio. Providing the one unique solution from core to surface of our Earth. Research driven,  technology focussed, and harnessing advances in measured data precision. Delivering for our future needs across major industry sectors, including mining, energy and space


As the world’s resources have become discovered at the surface, the need for exploration drives investigation by geophysical survey methods and technology deeper beneath the Earth's terrain. We need to find subcropping prospects with resolution gains in satellite, airborne, ground and marine technology, tied to surface observations and subsurface inference.

Subterrane exploration


In principle, all measurements of geophysical surveys require some means of property contrast for a residual anomaly to help us understand the subsurface. Just as in geological mapping, we need outcrops, drill core and trenches to help us understand the subsurface. In all forms of investigation there is ambiguity. Synthesizing observations reduces this ambiguity.


Subsurface geological terranes are inferred by geological observation and geophysical measurement.  These observations and measurements vary by scale and depth, but are always limited by the measured geophysical wavelength. Subterrane utilizes research and technology to make factual correlations to improve interpretations.


Currently Subterrane is investigating the link between Earth's shallow and deep structure, the processes that link plate tectonics with plume theory, and how these practically apply to resources exploration and mitigating risk in developing regional infrastructure. Subterrane has developed Sigmoid Tectonics (TM), a process to measure the Earth's present interior structure, from crust to core, current projects include diamond exploration in South Africa (low entropy geology), sediment displacement in Spain (high entropy geology), earthquake studies, and the integration of mathematical theory with field observations.


Earth’s geological processes are fluid. The movement of crustal and mantle material should be captured by efficient, repeatable time lapse satellite measurements to accurately measure and predict the Earth’s tectonic and crustal deformation in order to primarily secure the safety of its inhabitants and to benefit resource exploration
