We develop process-driven, conceptual models to identify—and enhance understanding of—your mineral exploration targets. By combining cutting-edge 3D modelling software such as Leapfrog with our extensive knowledge of mineral systems, we develop optimal, cost-effective solutions at all stages of your exploration process.
Because of the growing need for deep targeting, it’s essential to clearly understand the geometry of structures in the third and fourth dimensions. We apply a rigorous, litho-structural process to interpret geophysical and geochemical data sets and define and evaluate potential exploration targets. We also conduct advanced structural interpretations that correlate mineralized systems with structural settings as well as systematic data- and knowledge-driven mineral potential mapping using GIS, GOCAD, and state-of-the-art machine learning workflows.
Our understanding of orebody formation mechanisms and distribution within wide-ranging geological and tectonic settings enhances orebody searches and has benefitted greenfield, brownfield, and resource expansion projects.
Case study: 3D geological mapping
In this presentation delivered at the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) Lithium and Graphite Seminar, Mike Cunningham shares his experience working on graphite projects around the world and discusses examples of the three main types of graphite mineralisation, their geological complexities and why structure is the key to exploing and estimating an industrial mineral resource.Learn More
In this presentation, Mike Cunningham discusses exploration for conglomerate Gold in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, how it compares with Witswatersrand style deposits and techniques for sampling and quantifying the mineralisation.Learn More
It is now a well-established, unavoidable cliché, introducing many presentations over the last decade, that mineral deposit discovery rates are declining and geophysical methods are becoming ever more essential in finding deposits beneath cover.Learn More
Permafrost refers to earth materials at or below 0°C (32°F) for at least two consecutive years (see the end of the article for more details).Learn More
Brine extraction for surface process and recovery of potash, lithium, boron and industrial salt requires the application of traditional hydrogeological-hydrogeochemical theories to hyper-saline solutions.Learn More
