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

Greenland has numerous gold showings, but only one has ever been mined. The Nalunaq Gold Mine in South Greenland opened in 2004 following the discovery of a gold-quartz vein in the Kirkspirdalen Valley 12 years earlier. The Nalunaq discovery, like all good exploration tales, was made at the very Read more... about Exploring Greenland's Gold Districts

Spectral remote sensing involves the collection, processing and interpretation of electromagnetic energy that is reflected or emitted from features on the Earth’s surface. The fundamental premise is that different materials reflect and emit energy at different wavelengths and can be discerned Read more... about The power of spectral remote sensing

SRK Exploration realised the full potential of sonic drilling in 2010 when they recommended that sonic rigs should be used at an alluvial platinum project that was struggling to reconcile drilling results and mine production. Sonic drilling was ideal for this project, returning excellent Read more... about Sonic drilling - where does it fit?

In recent years SRK Exploration Services noticed that the fast pace of modern exploration often occurs at the expense of quality data management and geological training.

The current demand for experienced geologists shows little sign of abating and the need for training has never been Read more... about Effective Geological Training and Data Management
