We are pleased to bring you the latest news on geophysical services and products available from Australia in 2016.

ASEG-PESA-AIG Conference 2016

Alpha Geoscience is attending the ASEG-PESA-AIG Conference in Adelaide from 21 to 24 August, and would like to invite you to our booth # 59.  We will have a wide range of geophysical instruments on the stand and technical expertise to discuss your needs, whether it be for instruments or services.
Instruments that are anticipated to be on the stand include:


  • magROCK Magnetic Susceptibility Meter
  • Well Logger with Winch, Matrix and a number of Probes
  • FastSnap Time Domain EM System
  • Geode G24 Seismograph
    Jim LoCoco, from Mount Sopris Instruments will also be on hand to provide technical information on the range of logging equipment and probes available.

    Borehole Logging Workshop

    Alpha, in conjunction with Mount Sopris Instruments (Denver, Co, USA) is holding a two day workshop on borehole logging orientated to the mineral, coal, engineering and groundwater arena. This workshop will be on the Thursday and Friday after the ASEG-PESA-AIG Conference in Adelaide from 25 to 26 August, with a practical session at the Glenside uranium test pits included as part of the workshop.  If you have not received a flyer or would like further information please contact our office or email

    Rental Instruments

    Alpha have a number of hire portable well logging systems and these are now available for short or long term rental.  We also have ex-rental logging systems for sale at a discounted cost. 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 endeavour to do our best to find the equipment you require.


    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
