Magara Enterprises Ltd. is an electromagnetic surveying company based in central Alberta providing high quality EM surveys for the environmental industry.
Magara is owned and operated by Darcy Cruickshanks. Since 2004 Darcy has completed over 2000 EM survey maps for major oil & gas companies, Alberta Environment and ASRD. Magara has worked in all areas, from the southern Alberta prairies to remote locations in northern British Columbia.
Magara uses two different EM instruments depending on the nature of the exploration target. The EM31-MK2 has an effective exploration depth of approximately 6m and is the ideal tool for mapping pollution plumes related to former oil and gas activity on lease sites. The EM38-MK2 has a shallower effective exploration depth than the EM31 and is ideal for near surface detection. Used in conjunction, the EM31 and EM38 provide an excellent estimation of depth and anomaly characterization. Both instruments are digitally synchronized to differential global positioning system (DGPS) which allows accurate positioning of the geophysical data.
Survey design is the key consideration in ensuring a successful geophysical program in any application. Survey parameters will be tailored to suit the exploration goal and provide the best results in a cost efficient manner.
Quality Assurance (QA/ QC) is used to ensure that the data is of the highest quality and all error sources are minimized. If an Interpretation report is required, comprehensive QC tests are performed in the field before and after surveys.
Interpretation services can be acquired optionally for either the EM31 or EM38 surveys and are performed by a professional geophysicist. An APEGGA stamped report is provided to the client with all interpretations. Additional interpretations or products can be provided on request.
Data integration is another important service provided by Magara. We can either integrate data from clients or provide data in a format that can be easily integrated with other results by the client’s personnel.
Safety is our top priority for both our operator and the client. We are actively participating in the Partnership in Health and Safety program and maintain our Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR). We are also members of ISNetworld and ComplyWorks.
