Mongolia is rich in mineral resources. Its true potential however has not been fully evaluated because the country is still underexplored. GeoSignals (GS) LLC was formed in 2006 to address these challenges of exploring the country by employing the most advanced remote-sensing technologies available. This requires the acquisition of various geophysical instruments, software, and training of professionals. The company offers a wide spectrum of geophysical technologies that can be used to detect and image subsurface mineral deposits; namely, magnetic, gravity, IP, geodetic, EM, and seismic.
To further enhance our capabilities, maintain high-quality international standards, and training, GS formed a strategic partnership with Lawrence M. Gochioco, President of LM Gochioco & Associates Inc. and GeoNano Technology Corp., based in Houston, Texas, USA. Mr. Gochioco is an internationally-renowned geophysicist who is well-known within the Society of Exploration Geophysicist (SEG) because of his past and current editorial positions. He published over 30 technical papers and feature articles in various engineering and geophysical journals. [Company websit:
Since 2008, GS professionals have been attending the annual SEG meetings held in the USA to learn innovative geophysical technologies. In addition, they traveled to other western countries for more training and to attend continuing education classes. The company has coordinated and sponsored SEG events in Mongolia. More recently, GS succeeded in inviting Mr. Gochioco give a talk at the National University of Mongolia (NUM) in 2010. Through their efforts and hardwork, the SEG Executive Committee approved the formation of Mongolia’s first student chapter on Feb. 2011. NUM students can now avail of SEG programs (i.e. educational materials, scholarships, training, etc.) via the student chapter.
