SRK supports mines in conversion from open pit to large underground caving operations.Caving Operations
Since the late 1990’s SRK’s Perth mining group has focused mainly on caving projects (sub level cave and block cave), completing over 20 projects in 8 countries, covering studies, operational reviews and due diligence. For example, one such study provided the blueprint for the establishment of Newcrest’s successful Ridgeway Mine. SRK has assisted many mines in their transition from open pit to large underground caving operations.




SRK investigates structure and mineralization in Pilbara iron ore to target exploration.Pilbara Iron ore
SRK’s Paul Hodkiewicz, geologist, and Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) geologist in the field. To fast-track the exploration program and identify targets along the +200km strike length of tenements in the project area, Western Australia, FMG must investigate the structural and stratigraphic controls of mineralization in the Nammuldi Member of the Marra Mamba Iron Formation and  structural controls on the continuity of ore-grade mineralization, and determine their timing and movement sense.




SRK completed regional geological study of Sydney Basin, with interest from coal mining companies, coal seam methane explorers, and government departments.Sydney Basin
SRK recently completed a regional study and basin model of Sydney Basin and the eastern part of the Gunnedah Basin for coal exploration and mining entities. This project’s major focus was to investigate the relationship between regional-scale basement features and known local structural risks, to reduce geological uncertainty. In addition to the four initial sponsors, to date five other organizations including coal mining companies, Coal Seam Methane (CSM) explorers and government research departments have acquired the study’s results.




SRK Australasia speeds up the process of generating accurate grade models with Leapfrog.Leapfrog
Leapfrog software is SRK Australasia’s latest R&D investment success story. Leapfrog eliminates the task of manually digitizing resource models from drillhole data. Based on 3D interpolation technology, Leapfrog can generate accurate grade models in a matter of minutes to hours, compared to days or weeks if the information was manually digitized.
