Having completed numerous mining geochemistry projects located on five continents over the past two decades, the mining geochemistry team has a proven track record. We assist our mining clients with characterizing the geochemistry of their mining projects as we help them navigate the permitting process from exploration through to mine closure. Our teams’ experience encompasses both small and large projects located in diverse climates, from the hot arid deserts of North Africa, to the frigid arid desert of the Arctic Circle, to the wet tropical climate of Asia and everything in between.
