Approach 

When capturing and validating electronic data, SRK takes into account the required formats for mining software or AutoCAD/GIS packages. Validation of the project data is performed by utilising multiple data entry to check for transcription errors or by undertaking spot checks. This, together with regular auditing of captured data, ensures a robust dataset is maintained throughout the project.

SRK has the expertise to efficiently manage a client's data through the construction of a tailor-made database. Our technical experts are capable of providing well-informed advice on security and back-up of data, formats for importing and exporting, and recommendations of third-party providers for web-hosting, data uploading, downloading and communication of results.

Our data management-services may be applied in remote field locations or in the head office or mine site environment.
