SRK Consulting has extensive experience in supporting mine development projects and effective development, management and protection of ground water resources.

Operating from a well established hydrogeological base, our specialist teams of geologists, hydrogeologists and geochemists undertake all aspects of ground water studies including scoping, prefeasibility and feasibility studies. We provide a range of services related to ground water quality and quantity including resource exploration.
