Innovative sampling methods
We have a 30-year track record developing innovative geochemical sampling methods for exploration in regolith and sedimentary cover dominated terrains.
Zinc isotopes found in manganese crust samples of soils and termite mounds in the Pilbara, Western Australia, can be used by mineral explorers to find hidden deposits of critical metals necessary to support the transition to low emission energy technologies.
Analysing ultra-fine particles in soil is helping mineral explorers cost-effectively survey vast areas and hone in on new prospective targets.
Employing concepts related to hypothesis-testing and probabilistic inference allows us to provide explorers with the mathematical tools for the detection, ranking and delineation of targets.
Complex mineral systems
Thanks to our advanced analysis, a top-tier mining company gained a better understanding of the nature and abundance of amorphous mineral phases in their complex ore. This knowledge is used to make critical decisions at various stages in the minerals value chain.
We're developing new methods to reliably and comprehensively interpret and model geophysical data for explorers.
SISS: Access to geological data
In partnership with AuScope, we have developed open-access geospatial data and the Spatial Information Services Stack (SISS) to help explore Australia's geology on a national scale.
