Our Projects

RSC works with a range of clients in an array of spectacular and remote locations. We have extensive African experience and have assisted clients and governments in South, West and East-Africa with exploration, resource definition and mining projects for gold, base metals, REE and W/Sn/Ta.

We take great pride in getting top-quality results out of sometimes difficult working conditions. Our local support offices allow us to tackle the logistical part of these projects with a high degree of efficiency.

RSC has run challenging resource drill-outs in hot deserts in the middle-east, green fields exploration projects in humid remote forests in SE Asia, and mining operations in the subarctic in Europe and north-east Asia. We have been the key technical consultants for a seabed mining project off the coast of New Zealand. Hot or cold, wet or dry, onshore or offshore, RSC will get results under any conditions.
