ARGUS, Intrepid Geophysics’ newest product, is developed from the ground up with modern architecture and technology, providing stability and extensibility into it’s future. ARGUS replaces GeoModeller amongst our product offerings and is far more adaptable to the changing preferences for desktop and cloud-based solutions.

ARGUS aims to create steady-state, implicit geological models from a range of geophysical and geological datasets as well as enhancing models and interpretations through the use of forward and inverse geophysical modelling, with the inclusion of Airborne EM.

The ARGUS product is created such that it can manage and quantify all aspects of uncertainty associated with creation a single, or multiple instances of a common Earth model.

ARGUS provides a variety of tools such as Resource Estimation, 2D/3D geophysical and geothermal modeling, multi-scale data integration, advanced drillhole management and Airborne EM inversions to your in-house experts so that they can extract relevant data and create value-add products for industries like mining, oil & gas, geotechnical and groundwater.

Industry users are offered the software on a subscription model, with a wide variety of licensing options, including site licenses, and premium online support.

ARGUS is also offered towards Academic and Educational purposes.

ARGUS Base modules

GEOLOGY MODELLING Full 3D geology model-building including all input/output, editing, visualisation, advanced drill hole management, interpolation of drill hole attributes, 2D/3D grid/mesh visualisation & computation, geology & resource volumetrics, property optimisation. Forward Grav-Mag geophysics modelling in 2.5D & 3D. And forward prediction of synthetic 2D seismographs.

Add-on ARGUS Cluster Tool

For automated structural analysis: Performs 2D/3D point data clustering. Available for: conventional data (anisotropic, isotropic), tensor data, vector data. Dip calculation reports. Implicit surface solved for final planes (ARGUS and INTREPID interoperable).


Add-on ARGUS Grav/Mag Inversion

FULL GRAV/MAG INVERSION Litho-constrained stochastic geophysical inversion. Including joint inversion of any number and combination from: gravity, magnetics, tensor grids of Grav/Mag, and component tensor grids of Grav/Mag. Litho-constraints are either directly from 3D geology (ARGUS-Base) or linked to an imported starting lithology or property voxet. Also includes any combination (%) from Fixed Geology Property-Only inversion to Fixed Property Geology Geometry-only inversion. This module also includes 3D geothermal computations, and a micro-seismic events record viewer with a temporal filter.

Add-on ARGUS Geothermal

Forward heat flow modelling, integrated with the 3D geological modelling engine.

Add-on ARGUS CGAL Libraries

For building meshes of surfaces and volumes by triangular and tetrahedral elements, derived from implicit models from ARGUS, exporting to various finite element mesh formats.


Add-on ARGUS 1D Airborne EM Inversion & Support For Viewing 2.5D Inversion Products

Enabling: Load/interrogate your airborne EM survey data; Create geological sections for each line; Create a geology model and predict the 1D EM response; Review the predicted outcomes as log conductivity sections and 3D Point clouds of predicted resistivity/conductivity; Establish the project required for a 2.5D inversion service to be performed by Intrepid Geophysics for a fee (see below). Supports all common commercial airborne EM systems.

Add-on ARGUS 2D/3D Worms

For automated structural analysis: Performs Multi-Scale Edge Detection (Worming) and Euler Depth to Basement. Creates databases CSV for worms, points, lines. Uses the Digital Terrain (ARGUS and INTREPID inter-operable).
