GEM Resource Surveys was incorporated in 1978 starting out with two conventional survey crews and has grown steadily until now employing up to 45 people.  The conventional surveying techniques were complimented with the addition of GPS (Global Positioning Services) in 1997 with the acquisition of Trimble 4000SSi GPS Receivers, with Topcon GPS/Glonass Receivers in 2001, with Trimble 5700 GPS Receivers in 2003 and with Leica 1200 GPS Receivers in 2005 .  The Trimble 5700 system was upgraded to Trimble R8-5800 in August 2012. We have completed programs throughout Western Canada and the Northern United States of jobs ranging in size from short 2D lines to 40,000 point 3Dís.

We believe that with experienced seasoned people armed with solid guidance from our head office we can compliment your seismic data with exceptional quality surveying and report submission.
