In days gone by, panning for gold often meant long hours spent kneeling at the edge of a river bank, swirling water through a pan to sift out a few tiny glittering nuggets. Fortunately, those days are long gone and, today, exploring for gold is a sophisticated juggle of logistical planning, asset management and environmental stewardship.
For many exploration companies, there’s also a strong desire to operate more efficiently now – especially since many face a number of challenges working in very remote locations where physical access is limited and the climate is harsh.

Delta, BC, Canada – When there’s no gas station for a thousand miles, now you can bring your own. SEI Industries Ltd. recently launched its new GO-Station fuel modules, built inside ISO containers, and capable of providing everything needed to receive and transfer fuel from any bulk fuel storage system.
The concept is simple – provide a controlled, protected environment to house pumping, filtration, metering and dispensing equipment.
Make it tough, compact and portable so it can be shipped by land, sea or air. Design it to withstand remote locations and engineer it to be compatible with diesel fuel, jet fuel or lube oils (future models will also allow gas).
