Geology & Survey

geology1Mineral exploration is the process of finding ores (commercially viable concentrations of minerals) to mine. Mineral exploration is a much more intensive, organized and professional form of mineral prospecting and, though it frequently uses the services of prospecting, the process of mineral exploration on the whole is much more involved.

QMMPL exploration capabilities are handled by a specialist team within QMMPL Exploration dept. We provides a wide range of exploration services and consultancy, covering the design and management of exploration programmes ranging from early “grass-roots” phases to feasibility studies.

QMMPL provides a adapted exploration service can manage both consult on exploration programmes , utilizing the latest exploration techniques and innovative technologies. QMMPL exploration programmes always follow a phased, results-driven approach with target ranking and risk assessment taking place at every stage. This provides regular milestones and key decision points, such that the programme has the greatest chance of identifying new mineral deposits, and remaining in budget.
