Mineral Exploration Targeting

Add value and advance your project with SRK’s integrated exploration targeting solutions

SRK specializes in developing process-driven, conceptual models to identify—and improve the understanding of—your mineral exploration targets. Our ability to integrate cutting-edge, 3D modeling software with our extensive knowledge of mineral systems enables us to provide you with optimal, cost-effective solutions at all stages of your exploration pipeline.

Given the increasing need to identify deep or buried mineral deposits, we help you develop a comprehensive understanding of the geometry of structures in the third and fourth dimension. We apply a rigorous, litho-structural process to interpret geophysical or specialized geochemical datasets, then define and evaluate potential exploration target areas.

SRK’s specialized exploration services are built on our core strengths. These include advanced structural interpretation skills, the ability to connect mineralized systems to the structural setting, systematic data- and knowledge-driven mineral potential mapping, and 3D geological and geophysical modeling (using gOcad, GeoModeller and Leapfrog). Our consultants are experts in the formation and distribution of minerals within a wide range of geological and tectonic settings. We have provided exploration services for greenfields, brownfields and resource expansion projects.
