- Estimate mineral resources using best practices.
- Use a geostatistical approach to grade interpolation.
- Classify resource estimate based on type and scale of deposit.
- Validate resource estimate to ensure it is an appropriate reflection of underlying data.
- Design a drill program; recommend optimal drill hole spacing to delineate mineral resources in a desired category.
- Implement and monitor quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) sampling programs.
- Conduct project risk evaluations based on conditional simulation studies.
- Conduct reconciliation studies that compare actual production to the resource model.
- Analyze the effects of mining selectivity on recovered tonnage and grade.
- Analyze the potential economic viability of mineral projects.
- Recommend drilling targets to expand resources or to explore for satellite zones proximal to existing deposits.
- Prepare visual aids for corporate presentations or company websites.
- Draw on our extensive experience in open pit and underground operations to advise, direct and advance mineral prospects.
- Prepare Technical Reports compliant with NI 43-101.
- Prepare press releases compliant with NI 43-101.
- Prepare Technical Reports for jurisdictions outside of Canada: e.g., JORC, PERC, and SAMREC.
- Audit resource estimate to ensure it is supported by the underlying database.
- Ensure resource classification is in accordance with CIM guidelines, and ensure distribution in each category is within accepted industry standards.
- Audit the survey, geologic, and analytic content to determine validity of the underlying database.
- Audit resource at operating mine to ensure actual production is reflected in resource/reserve model estimates.
