From Grass Route Exploration to Scope Study

Successful exploration relies on efficiently managing exploration programs based on effective application and interpretation of geology, geochemistry and geophysics to generate and test exploration targets. Our core exploration services include geophysics, exploration and drill planning, exploration management, QA/QC assessments and planning, audits on drilling and project evaluations.

In many geological terrains around the world, exploration becoming much more focused on discovering deeper or “blind” orebodies, as the scope for targeting easily accessible areas is becoming more limited. Delivering exploration success in deep targeting requires a much more reliable understanding of the geometry of structures in the third dimension. These needs are driving development and application of 3D modeling and 3D visualization technologies (which connect the 3D geophysical technology with 3D geological modeling software), ensuring that mineralization targets are defined by multiple explorations and mining parameters, and are directly focused on adding value to the project.

These new technologies are essential tools for effective 3D exploration. However, their use is not yet widespread because of the perceived cost and time required to develop expertise. We use these and other cutting-edge 3D geological and geophysical modeling methods, and also undertaking research and development of our own. This gives us a distinct advantage in providing the best solutions for your projects.
