Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbons (SGH) - GC/MS

Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbons (SGH) is an extractive procedure which releases organic compounds adsorbed onto near surface samples. The SGH procedure provides a highly focused and sensitive method which measures compounds in the C5-C17 range in concentrations down to the low parts-per-trillion (ppt).


Actlabs’ research and development into the applicability of SGH for exploration has resulted in the availability of a cost-effective method, which can be used in tandem with geophysics to improve your success rate.


SGH Advantages:

  • Delineation of mineral targets through thick layers of cover rock and overburden
  • A cost-effective technique of prioritizing targets
  • Over 160 hydrocarbon compounds ensures that SGH anomalies are positively identified 
  • Practical sample collection, handling and shipping protocols with one trip to the field reduces costs
  • Robust method - SGH is uninfluenced by cultural activity 
  • Backed by over 25 years experience in GC/MS related research & development
  • SGH has been successful in difficult terrain. Samples can be near surface soils, peat, humus, till, sand, submerged lake-bottom sediments, and even snow.

Price per sample is noted in the Geological Schedule of Services and Fees . (50 sample minimum unless a custom quotation has been obtained). Sample preparation charges are additional. Volume discounts may be applicable. Please enquire. 


All SGH submissions receive an interpretation. Price includes interpretation thus relative or UTM coordinates must accompany the samples when submitted.
