End-to-end solutions to the minerals industry
Whether you’re looking to improve the look and feel of your existing website or create a new website, our team of developers has decades of experience designing attractive, user-friendly and SEO websites by leveraging the latest web standards and technologies.
We have experience in compiling technical reports that are compliant with CRIRSCO codes such as SAMREC, JORC, and NI43-101 for private and multi-national listed mining and exploration companies on the JSE, NYSE, LSE, TSX-VE, and the ASX.
Before investing in any project it is vital to determine the reliability of the existing information. We have conducted numerous extensive due diligence investigations to establish the integrity of entities and projects.
Our credible GIS skill set is applied to all our projects to provide our clients with an all-encompassing spatial understanding of their mineral projects to support logistics and decision making processes.
Exploration design, management, and execution
We devise and execute appropriate and cost-effective greenfields, and brownfields exploration programmes, compliant with the relevant standards of the reporting mineral code, in the form of EPC, EPCM, or rates reimbursable capacity.
We can take care of your Prospecting and Mining Rights’ application and management on your behalf to ensure administrative compliance with the South African Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002.
Project and Cost
Our turn-key project, contract, and cost management experience on the successful delivery of exploration programmes relieves our clients’ of unpredictable and time-consuming work.
With safety as our number one priority, Earthlab offers the management of SHE protocols compliant with the MHSA with a disciplined approach aimed at maintaining ZERO harm.
Field and Assay
Complete chain of custody of our clients’ exploration samples, practical Quality Assurance and Quality Control implementations, and statistical processing of laboratory results assure mineral code compliance and reliable trustworthiness.
Geological Database Management
Our transparent and robust processes implemented for our clients provide the best quality data to ensure the success of their projects. We offer secure and standardised database management through our partnerships to deliver the highest quality data for our clients in their mineral development projects.
We have developed a unique skill set to undertake orientated core logging to support design criteria of various mining methods with a proven success rate.
We pride ourselves in the delivery of meaningful geological interpretations illustrated through two- and three-dimensional modelling, which forms the basis of our Mineral Resource estimates and conversion to Mineral Reserves by selecting appropriate modifying factors.
Mergers & Acquisitions
We guide the technical integration and alignment of multiple data and information standards into a practical model that will ensure the benefit of merging technical information comes to fruition.
PEAs, Conceptual Level
We have been involved in critical path investment decision making processes from the conceptual level to feasibility studies for both private and publicly traded mining companies. Our experience range from small-scale open-pit mines to multi-billion dollar underground mines.
We combine our robust geological and mining expertise with accurate Mineral Resource to Reserve conversions and apply appropriate mine design and scheduling for proper CAPEX and OPEX estimates as sensible inputs into financial evaluation results.
Our services include hands-on geological mapping, primary quality control, stockpile management, database management, planning and reconciliation for our clients’ production geology needs.
Our in-depth experience of the entire mine value chain with specific specializations, combined with our innovative approach, provide meaningful process optimization results by distilling perplexed situations into simplified and well-understood intricacies involved in every step of the process.
Mineral Resource Estimation
We apply advanced data analytics, geostatistics and modelling techniques to assess the geological data and resource model for accurate reporting. This can be applied to fresh exploration data as well as updating resource models of operational mines.
Mining Grade Control
As the custodian of your mineral resources, we offer continuous grade control modelling, as well as in-field grade control to ensure maximum economic extraction and reconciliation. We have proven Key Performance Indicators to illustrate outstanding grade, tonnes and safety achievements in PGMs and Base Metals; open-pit and undergrounds mines.
