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. It is important therefore that those working in Read more... about Steps to Reviewing Geophysical Data

Geological mapping is a key part of any mineral exploration project and provides vital insights into the lithological and structural controls of mineralisation. Mapping during early-stage exploration is a particularly cost-effective tool to facilitate the generation of targets and to assess Read more... about How an integrated approach to geological mapping provided new insights to the Klondike Gold District

Calcareous silts are encountered in many offshore areas where oil and gas exploitations are taking place (e.g., Arabian gulf, south east of Brazil, south east and north west of Australia). Understanding behavior of calcareous silts remains challenging as undisturbed silt samples are difficult to Read more... about Mechanical behavior of intact and remoulded calcareous silts

Beginning life in 1974 as geotechnical specialists, SRK Consulting focused largely on the mining sector in its early years; it was not long, however, before it expanded into civil engineering work – and established a sister company by 1981 to operate in this field. Since then Read more... about SRK’s wide expertise now serving all economic sectors

According to figures released by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) at the Mining Indaba, South Africa’s spending on exploration is “the lowest among leading mining countries”. Between 2009 and 2017 South Africa’s share of the global exploration budget fell from 1.6% to 1.1%. Read more... about What is needed to encourage exploration in SA?

The Kennady North Project kimberlites (Northwest Territories of Canada) comprises multiple shallow dipping dykes and several volcaniclastic bodies that have an unusual shallow plunging geometry and complex "pipe" shapes that are termed chonoliths. The detailed Read more... about Kelvin and Faraday kimberlite emplacement geometries and implications for subterranean magmatic processes
