The direct consequence resulting from mining activity when carrying out the exploration or exploitation of a deposit involves changes in the physical environment, ranging from the geoavailability of materials, which can alter the quality of surrounding water and soil, to the emission of noise Read more... about Environmental Certifications in Mining Exploration Projects

It is now a well-established, unavoidable cliché, introducing many presentations over the last decade, that mineral deposit discovery rates are declining and geophysical methods are becoming ever more essential in finding deposits beneath cover. It is important therefore that those working in Read more... about Steps to Reviewing Geophysical Data

Geological mapping is a key part of any mineral exploration project and provides vital insights into the lithological and structural controls of mineralisation. Mapping during early-stage exploration is a particularly cost-effective tool to facilitate the generation of targets and to assess Read more... about How an integrated approach to geological mapping provided new insights to the Klondike Gold District

Calcareous silts are encountered in many offshore areas where oil and gas exploitations are taking place (e.g., Arabian gulf, south east of Brazil, south east and north west of Australia). Understanding behavior of calcareous silts remains challenging as undisturbed silt samples are difficult to Read more... about Mechanical behavior of intact and remoulded calcareous silts
