RESOURCE INVESTIGATIONS

 

We provide the full range of resource investigation and reporting services for delineation and assessment of extractive resources including hard rock, sand and gravel, sand and industrial minerals.

 

Our resource investigation capabilities include:

  • Field mapping and geological reconnaisance
  • Geological modelling, 3-D Modelling and digital mapping
  • Supervision of subsurface investigations/ drilling campaigns
  • Geotechnical interpretation and slope stability analysis
  • Reliability reporting
  • Materials testing and reporting
  • Resource and Reserve estimates
  • Sampling, testing and interpretation of results

To increase options and reduce costs to clients, we also conduct (higher level) strategic resource evaluations, which address key issues impacting on resource or reserve estimates but not in the detail required for operational planning.

 

When reporting on geological resources and reserves we apply at our professional discretion, the provisions of the JORC Code (Australasian Mineral's Industry's Joint Ore Reserves Committee Code) 2012 to improve objectivity and transparency of reporting of results.

 

Note that the JORC Code is binding on ASX listed public companies reporting mineral, coal, oil or gas resources to the stock exchange and does not apply to quarries (eg hard rock, sand and gravel, sand), unless they are publicly listed and mining for minerals as defined under the Code.
