Database Management & Audit

The biggest risk to a mineral exploration project is not understanding the quality, representativity and repeatability of the geological data which equates to direct geological risks to the project.

Independent Due Diligence of Exploration Projects

When considering investments in exploration projects, it is crucial to perform independent due diligences to assess the quality and accuracy of the geological data and evaluate the associated risks incurred by investors. Our team of experts can provide comprehensive technical geological due diligence services to evaluate the project’s geology and mineral potential. Through a systematic review of mineral tenement status, and through auditing geological and geochemical databases, geological models, and resource statements, we ensure the reliability and integrity of the geological data.

Exploration Geological Database

Quality control is of paramount importance when dealing with a mineral exploration database. Ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the data contained within the database is crucial for making informed decisions and maximising the success of exploration endeavours. Rigorous quality control measures help identify and rectify errors, inconsistencies, or inaccuracies in the data, preventing misleading interpretations and flawed analyses. By maintaining data integrity, geologists and mining professionals can confidently use the information to identify prospective areas, investigate the occurrences, grade, depth and quantity of a mineralised resource, and plan exploration strategies with greater confidence. Quality control also enhances the credibility of exploration results, facilitating communication with stakeholders, investors, and regulatory bodies. Moreover, a robust quality control process fosters trust in the database as a reliable resource, enabling seamless collaboration and data sharing among different exploration teams and organisations. In the ever-evolving world of mineral exploration, a well-maintained and quality-controlled database is the most valuable asset for an exploration and mining company.

“Once the business data has been centralised, the value of the database is greater than the sum of the pre-existing parts” – Larry Ellison
