Mineral Resource Estimation

Innovative resource modelling and interpolation solutions for your project

SRK has substantial, global experience in the estimation and reporting of Mineral Resources. Our consultants are proud to be industry leaders in the improvement of Mineral Resource estimation and reporting standards.

The four pillars of Mineral Resource estimation are data quantity and quality, geological understanding, grade analysis, and adherence to international reporting codes (e.g. JORC; CIM NI 43-101; SAMREC; SME; PERC). SRK considers all four of these aspects to be equally important in the public and responsible declaration of a Mineral Resource.

We build and maintain long lasting relationships with our clients and industry partners. Our estimates have assisted hundreds of projects from early stage grass roots exploration through to production.

Key services include:

  • Collection, management, and analysis of mining and exploration data
  • Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QAQC) at all stages of project development
  • Development of geological models for robust resource domaining
  • Statistical and geostatistical analysis to build optimised grade models which reflect the controls on mineralisation
  • Classification and reporting of Mineral Resources in accordance with international reporting codes
  • Qualified Person/Competent Person sign off in a wide range of deposit styles and commodities
  • Grade control studies for reconciliation
  • Due diligence of Mineral Resource estimates
