Natural Resources and Mining. Raw Materials and Prospecting. New Opportunities.

Progress. Industry. Landscape.

Since ancient times, raw materials have been the source of prosperity and progress. Often in the past, the need for new deposits was the driving force for technical advancement. These days, sufficient raw materials are the basis for industrial production. A guaranteed supply of raw materials for industry is of high economic importance. We prospect and evaluate worldwide deposits for liquid, solid and gaseous materials. The extraction of raw materials through mining poses a great responsibility for people, nature and the environment on us. After decommissioning the mine, we design the plan for the post-mine landscape. We are also happy to develop individual flood scenario concepts for you, as well as post-flood concepts.

Deposit Investigation

Research. Monitoring. Analysing.

Deposits are an essential source for the survival of entire industries. They counteract the shortage of raw materials. Raw materials are very diverse – and so are their deposits. The prospecting of a deposit is the basis for successful raw material extraction. We will offer geological expertise combined with years of experience and technical prospecting services. This will guarantee you reliable planning, monitoring and evaluation during the prospecting period.

Tasks

  • Prospecting for deposits
  • Determining deposit reserves
  • Determining raw material quality

Our Services

  • Prospecting concepts and -planning
  • Technical support for prospecting
  • Evaluation and documentation from the prospecting, field and laboratory investigations.
  • 3D-Deposit modelling, for example with SURPAC

Your Benefits

  • Expert assistance
  • Planning security and risk minimisation
  • Legal and cost security
  • High quality and reliable database
  • Years of experience and local knowledge concerning deposit reserves and raw material quality
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from one provider

Deposit Evaluation

Classifying. Deciding. Approving.

We deal with all types of raw materials; liquids, solids and gases – all over the world. We prospect for deposits, investigate raw materials as well as plan and compile surveys. Evaluating a deposit through a Pre-Feasibility Study and Bankable Feasibility Study pursuant to international standards, which enables the prospecting investor to undergo a financial commitment on a sound basis. Determining the presence of exploitable reserves is the most important criterion. Other decision criteria are technical recoverability, ecological and social impacts on the environment, and licensing aspects.

Tasks

  • Determining extractable reserves pursuant to technical and economic aspects
  • Classifying prospecting data and designating storage deposits pursuant to international quality standards

Our Services

  • Resource estimation
  • Classifying reserves and resources (for example according to the JORC-Code)
  • Technical recoverability
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Financial- and economic studies
  • Pre-Feasibility Studies, and Bankable-Feasibility Studies

Your Benefits

  • Valuation of the deposit
  • Economic decision-making for the deposit development
  • Expert assistance
  • Planning safety and risk management

  • High quality and reliable databases
  • Years of experience and local knowledge concerning deposit reserves and raw material quality
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from one provider

Extraction Planning

Advising. Preparing. Accompanying.

With the results of the deposit prospecting we develop technical resource and reserve extraction concepts and plan details for raw material extraction. We prepare approval procedures for the extraction of the deposits and accompany the approval processes in an advisory capacity.

Tasks

  • Carrying out of feasibility studies for raw material extraction
  • Planning services for raw material extraction
  • Guaranteeing geotechnical safety during the extraction

Our Services

  • Technical extraction concepts
  • Requirements on guaranteeing of geotechnical safety
  • Detailed technical planning for raw material extractions
  • Planning and control of water drainage for prospecting purposes
  • Accompanying the relevant legal mining and water approval procedures
  • Carrying out of cost estimation and profitability analyses
  • Calculating provisions and security services

Your Benefits

  • Expert assistance provision
  • Planning safety and risk management
  • Legal and cost security
  • High quality and reliable planning bases
  • Years of experience and local knowledge when applying for permits
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from one provider

Mine Decommissioning

Evaluating. Designing. Utilising.

Part of the decommissioning process of a mine is to consider the landscape design and usage after the extraction of a deposit. The design of the landscape must ensure long-term safety, a low maintenance and sustainable use after completion of the mining process. Planning must take geotechnical, hydrogeological and landscaping factors into consideration. Based on this we can develop a complex and unique redevelopment plan for you.

Tasks

  • Planning the design of the post-mining landscape
  • Ensuring long-term stability
  • Calculation of groundwater resurgence and development of flooding concepts
  • Pre-determining water quality during and after the completion of the flooding process in the mine cavities

Our Services

  • Conducting stability tests
  • Groundwater modelling to forecast groundwater resurgence and developing water quality
  • Technical planning for the final design of the land used
  • Accompanying licensing procedures (final business plans) and water law licensing procedures
  • Infrastructure re-utilisation planning
  • Analysis of the determination of mine damage for the assessment of risks in historical mining locations
  • General monitoring

Your Benefits

  • Expert assistance provision
  • Planning safety and risk management
  • Legal and cost security
  • High quality and reliable planning bases
  • Years of experience and local knowledge for the successful and sustainable design of the post-mining landscape
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from a one provider
