SRK’s specialised exploration services are built on our core strengths that include advanced structural interpretation skills, the ability to connect the minerals systems to the structural setting, systematic orebody targeting, and 3D modelling. We specialise in the development of process-driven, conceptual models to identify and improve the understanding of your mineral targets. Our in-house consultants have expert knowledge of the mechanisms of ore body formation and distribution within a wide range of geological and tectonic settings.
In many geological terranes around the world, the exploration industry is becoming much more focused on discovering deeper or “blind” ore bodies as targeting in easily accessible areas is becoming more limited. There is false belief that many of these areas have been explored adequately. Delivering exploration success in deep targeting requires a much more reliable understanding of the geometry of structures in the third dimension. This need is driving development of 3D modelling and 3D visualisation technologies (for example, Gocad, Geomodeller and Leapfrog software), ensuring that mineralisation targets are defined by more than one or two simple exploration or mining parameters, and is directly focused on adding value to the project.
These new technologies are essential tools for effective 3D exploration. However, their use is not yet that widespread in the industry because of the perceived cost and time required to develop expertise. We use these and other cutting-edge 3D geological and geophysical modelling methods, and are also undertaking research and development of our own. This gives us a distinct advantage in providing the best solutions for our clients’ projects.
