We are pleased to bring you the latest news on geophysical services and products available from Australia in 2014.

Near Surface Investigations

Alpha has the capability to investigate near surface targets using a variety of instruments depending on the item/s to be investigated.  These include:
-Underground Storage Tanks
-Contamination Mapping
-Groundwater Investigation
-Depth to Bedrock
-Mapping Buried Waste
-Mapping Voids
-Archaeological Investigation and Gravesite positions
-Mineral Exploration Targets

Second-hand Instruments

With the downturn of the industry there are people who are interested in selling their geophysical instruments and so Alpha continues to have second-hand equipment for sale.  We are also in a position to have your units on consignment and sell them for you.

Rental Instruments

Alpha continues to enhance the rental pool of geophysical instruments.  Alpha can supply geophysical instruments from our own pool or acquire from others to meet your requirements.  Our rental instruments are listed on the Rental Rates and Agreement form found on the website.
If there are items you are interested in but are not included in our Rental Rates and Agreement then please contact the staff and we will endeavors to do our best to find the equipment you require.

Attending Conferences

Alpha Geoscience will be exhibiting at the following conferences:
DrillFest 2015 – Ascot Racecourse, Perth from 21 to 22 October 2015
Myanmar Mining Development Summit 2016 – Yangon, Myanmar from 27 to 29 January 2016




The magROCK, for measuring magnetic susceptibility in rocks, cores and samples, incorporates the latest in measurement and display technology while retaining the sound physical principles that enable improved sensitivity and accuracy.

The MagROCK features:

-The magROCK uses two ferrite cored coils that give higher sensitivity and accuracy.  This is not possible in smaller instruments.
-Low frequency, 750 Hz, for deep penetration of rock sample and is optimal for avoiding erroneous readings caused by the simultaneous measurement of conductivity and susceptibility.
-A unique display feature of the magROCK is the reversal of the display for ‘ease-of-reading’ when the unit is held upside down.
-Digital and graphical display
Sensitivity of the magROCK is 1 x 10-5 SI Units
-Ruggedised assembly with ergonomic designed case
-Large memory stores 30 sets of 128 readings – total of 3,840 individual readings!
-The magROCK can operate in static or scanning mode  
-Data transfer by USB output (waterproof connector)
-User friendly menu system
