Designing exploration projects is all about understanding the logistical conditions and finding a suitable balance between the available budget, available time and desired outcomes. Things don’t always go as they are planned in the field, especially in those tricky remote locations and putting sound contingencies in place to safeguard the deliverables is not always easy.

We have planned, prepared, executed and publicly reported substantial exploration programmes throughout Africa, Asia and Oceania. These have included green fields mapping and geochemical sampling programmes, scout drilling and full regional exploration drilling programmes.

Often, smaller companies may not have the technical staff in-house to carry out its intended exploration programmes. Our consultants have relevant experience with most commodities and mineralisation styles and have run these kinds of programmes everywhere in the world. Campaign-style, success-driven or otherwise, we can design any exploration programme to suit your requirements.

Larger companies may sometimes not have the relevant staff on the books to carry out a drilling programme if it is unexpected or if part of a new initiative that wasn’t planned at the start of the budget year. RSC can take all the hassle of management, overheads, OHS, IT, visas, equipment, sub-contractors away and implement a full exploration programme, with directives clearly set by the client.

For all our full project management work we pride ourselves on our communication of progress, results and expenditure. We provide daily one-page reports with up-to-date sampling or drilling and safety information, and weekly technical reports with sections and maps showing the progress and most important findings to date. We track budget versus expenditure on a weekly basis to make sure that as a client, you are always up to date.
