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

Exploration, particularly field access is challenging in many remote environments due to lack of infrastructure and vehicle access takes several hours driving over sand dunes and dry river beds or relying on air access only.  A major challenge for exploration is decision making in the field, Read more... about Rapid exploration in remote terrains

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

Hydrogeologic studies at mining exploration sites rely on airlift-pumping tests because it is a relatively fast, simple, and accurate method of obtaining hydraulic conductivity values in deep fractured aquifers. A single data set from a typical packer-isolated airlift test can include falling- Read more... about Airlift Testing in Exploration Coreholes
