1964 – 2018
It is with heavy hearts that we share the sad news of the sudden passing of Jeff Nichols on Saturday, August 18, 2018, after a short and courageous battle against cancer. Jeff has been a vital part of the Quantec family since 2011, and his unexpected and untimely death is deeply felt by all of us at Quantec.
Those of us who had the privilege of knowing Jeff – not just as a co-worker, but also as a friend – will remember him as a passionate and caring person.
Jeff’s love of the outdoors led him to a career in geophysics. After working on survey crews around the world for Zonge Engineering and then Geosystems, a division of Schlumberger, Jeff joined Quantec in a sales capacity. Jeff was very keen about the Geothermal sector and developed new business for the company there. Jeff was an excellent liaison between clients and Quantec operations due to his hands-on knowledge of field geophysics, and this resulted in him being Quantec’s top salesperson for 5 years running.
We will miss Jeff’s wry sense of humour, his love of geophysics, and his passion for life.

TORONTO, March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lithium Energi Exploration, Inc. (TSXV:LEXI) (“LEXI” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce positive results from its initial geophysical surveys on each of the first three concessions studied in the northern section of its holdings in the Antofalla Salar. Interpreted brine horizons were detected throughout the entire 80 km2 area of these concessions, inferring the possibility that lithium-bearing brine exists beneath the properties in the northern area of the Antofalla Salar. The survey results received to date indicate that conductive horizons have been detected from just below surface to as much as 400 meters in depth.
LEXI’s Director of Exploration, Miles Rideout, noted, “Having conducted or supervised the acquisition of thousands of kilometers of TEM soundings in brine environments over the last thirty years, I’m pleased to report that the initial geophysical results exceeded our expectations. The highly conductive units encountered correlate with known brine aquifers and these data allow us to follow these target zones under areas of thick cover.”
Rob Gordon, P.Eng., Geophysicist will present at the upcoming Toronto Geological Discussion Group – Innovation Symposium on April 3rd, 2018
APRIL 3, 2018
Topic: Innovations in exploration imaging technology, implications for improved drill targetting
Rob Gordon of Quantec will be presenting on Thursday April 5th at the Northwestern Ontario Prospectors association meeting.
Time of presentation is 9 AM.
Topic : Innovations in exploration search technology and earth imaging.
Vancouver, B.C. Canada, March 1, 2018 – Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; DTC Eligible – CUSIP 080499403); (“Belmont”, or the “Company”)
Further to our news release of January 23, 2018 in which Belmont announced the commencing by Quantec Geoscience Limited (“Quantec”) of the Spartan AMT/MT Survey.
Belmont is pleased to announce the receipt of the Geophysical Report for Spartan Magnetotelluric (MT) Survey over the KibbyBasin property, carried out by Quantec. The survey covered most of Belmont’s Kibby Basin-Nevada claims and included the playa basin area as well as some of the adjoining higher level lands.
The MT survey and 3D inversion report clearly mapped a more conductive zone at many of thesurvey stations. This variation of the resistivity at depth is interpreted by Quantec as being a potential contact with sub-surface brine that may contain lithium.
The results of the MT survey are a critical source of information and provides a vital step that allows Belmont to select the most prospective locations and higherprobability brine aquifer targets for the next phase of drilling in 2018. Locations where the potential brine contacts are closest to the playa surface are being considered by Belmont as themost favourable targets.
The survey was completed in January, 2018 by field staff from Quantec and measured MT data at a total of 49 sites distributed along an XY grid with a site separation of 1000 metres, comprising approximately 36 square kilometers. The MT data were analyzed using 3D inversion which provides Belmont with a 3D model of the property from the surface down to 3 kilometers depth.
The results of the Quantec MT survey correlated well with information previously obtained from the gravity survey modeling (Wright Geophysics -2016). Quantec’s MT survey results clearly map a more conductive zone beginning at approximately 500m depth.
