About

Geomine specializes in development and implementation of innovative subsurface solutions. By bringing its broad experience our team meets diversified project requirements in finding resourceful and highly efficient solutions.

The three main methods we use to identify the structure and characteristic of the subsurface are Hyperspectral, Magnetic and Seismic.

Hyperspectral

What

Geomine’s revolutionary technology has been invented to radically reduce landmine contamination around the world

The tremendous advantage of this unique technology is the fact that the invented algorithm analyses massive amounts of data and identifies the areas which are CLEAR of mines. Geomine’s method allows for a quick and highly effective means of ELIMINATING THE CLEAR OF MINES AREA

Why

According to international surveys approximately 80% of all land suspected as mined is in fact clear

Nitrogen is a core component in every explosive material. Eventually, the molecule leaks from the explosive and is then absorbed into the surrounding ground and vegetation. This process causes nitrogen contamination of the ground and vegetation, not visible to the human eye. However, the use of a Hyperspectral camera allows us to identify the areas where land mines are present and
which areas are completely free

How

Geomine’s technology can either confirm the presence of mines or their absence, thereby serving to release land which does not need to be cleared in the first place

Geomine’s solution allows not only pinpointing of the areas where the ERW are located but also, and maybe most importantly, it allows identifying of the areas where no ERW are present. According to UN data, approximately 80% of all land designated as mined is in fact clear. Therefore the economic and humanitarian value of pinpointing the mine-free areas is of real importance

Seismic

What

Seismic method images the subsurface

Usage of this method allows to map the subsurface structure. Seismic method is a controlled generation of elastic waves by seismic source in order to obtain an image of the subsurface

Why

Seismic method that images the undersurface can locate targets in the shallow levels of the Earth section

That is an effective tool for studying the shallow subsurface for various applications such as identification of tunnels, bunkers and other void subsurface parts

How

The seismic reflection technique consists of generating seismic waves and measuring the time taken for the waves to travel from the source, reflect off an interface and be detected by an array of receivers at the surface

Accompanies with data processing and interpretation phase to complete the whole subsurface image

Magnetic

What

The magnetic map allows a visualization of the geological structure of the upper section of the subsurface

Magnetic geophysical surveys measure small, localised variations in the Earth’s magnetic field. Magnetic anomalies are produced by objects which contain magnetic minerals and buried steel objects

Why

By using magnetic method Geomine’s geophysical expertise will identify the shape, depth and properties of the object responsible for the anomalies such as landmines, Unexploded Ordnance and Explosive Remnants of War

How

Applications of magnetic alone or together with other methods allow to analyze the subsurface for any project requires buried object identification

Magnetometer surveys find underground objects such as landmines, Unexploded Ordnance, piles by detecting the magnetic anomalies they produce. Complementary usage of magnetic method along with hyperspectral method reduces false negative results (errors) to 0.1%

Avi Buzaglo Yoresh

Founder & Partner

Mr. Buzaglo‐ Yoresh spent over 20 years in the Israeli Defense Forces. He concluded his service as a Lieutenant Colonel and holds a M.Sc. in Geology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Yoresh has used his experience in the IDF working as a military geologist to find ways to detect landmines from a geological and chemical perspective rather than an approach based upon metal detection
