The generation of exploration targets is one of the key tasks of any mineral exploration company, or indeed of any country, looking to define areas of interest to attract investors.
IGS works with existing datasets to identify prospects using a variety of prospectivity analysis and remote sensing techniques.
Our team of expert geologists have extensive experience of working with a variety of clients, from junior exploration companies to national governments, to identify and define areas which can then be followed up with more detailed exploration.
IGS is the lead party as Technical Partner to the Saudi Geological Survey for the surveying of the Arabian Shield in Saudi Arabia (600 000 km2). This multi-year project provides quality control for the geological mapping, geochemical sampling programme, airborne geophysical survey, upgrading the National Geodatabase and the National Core Library of contractors.
We have also worked with many clients, including consultancies such as SRK Exploration and MSA (S Africa), as well as studies for national governments such as Kazakhstan, Iran, S Africa, and India in producing prospectivity maps and helping to define targets of interest.
