Structural Geology

Reduce exploration and mining risk by understanding the influence of structures on grade distribution and mine design

Structural geology provides an essential foundation for mineral exploration and extraction. By employing sound structural geology techniques, we can effectively manage exploration and mining risks, thereby reducing capital expenditure and minimising mining hazards.

Most mineral deposits formed in tectonically active areas and are therefore affected or controlled by geological structures. These structures influence nearly all technical aspects of projects, including exploration targeting (at all scales), grade distribution, grade control, resource estimation, rock mass engineering, and hydrogeology.

SRK combines strong expertise in theoretical structural geology with field and industrial experience to provide practical, applied solutions for our clients’ exploration programs and mine designs. SRK’s structural geologists have a proven track record for discovering and expanding resource bases.
