Projects

our projects scientific servicesIn 45 years we have never been taken off a project – that means we always deliver!

Here are a few highlights:

Our first ever project was the Hiab copper in southern Namibia.

Operating Namibia’s only independent lab for a 20-year period from the mid 70s.

100s of 1000s of regional soil samples for base metals right across Namibia leading to 1000s of meters of follow-up drilling.

Extensive programmes successfully completed on Namibia’s uranium fields – notably Trekkoppies, Langer Heinrich, Goanikontas and Valencia.

All the assay work for the Ruyst Kuil Uranium feasibility study undertaken by Esso Minerals in the Karoo region in South Africa.

Gold “BLEG” analysis for Pangea Goldfields in Tanzania led directly to the discovery of three mines now operated by Barrick Gold. These are Tulawaka, Golden Ridge and Buzwagi mines.

Gold “BLEG” analysis for Shell/Aurora on the Kraaipan greenstone belt resulting in the Kalgold mine, now a Harmony Gold operation.

The Corridor Mineral Sands Project successfully concluded and sold forward to Western Mining.

Seven years of primary heavy minerals concentrating and diamond indicator analysis resulting in Canada’s hugely successful Ekati Diamond Mine owned by BHP.

Operating the mine laboratory for Elandsfontein on their Phosphate project in Langebaan/Hopefield.

Eight years of copper analysis including Acid, Cyanide, Residual Solubility analysis for Khoemacau on their Botswana project.
