“All that glisters is not gold, especially if the geological map is unreliable” modified from William Shakespeare, ‘Merchant of Venice’

Specialised Geological Mapping Ltd provides a worldwide service to gold and base metal exploration companies that wish to sub-contract mapping (and avoid nasty surprises). The service is backed up by award-winning geologists with British Geological Survey (BGS) training and over 30 years of exploring mineralised systems all over the world, from Malaysia to Greenland, and Chile to Canada. We offer expertise in the mapping and modelling of:

  • porphyry gold
  • low, high and intermediate sulfidation epithermals
  • SEDEX silver
  • volcanic and igneous rocks
  • alteration minerals
  • vein and dilational structures
  • shear zone-hosted gold
  • structurally complex gold deposits

Increasingly, we contribute to geological models for resource calculations and to help expand reserves of existing mines. In the last few years, this has included some World Class deposits, such as the Navidad silver project in Argentina.

Other services include assessment of grassroots properties. Our geologists have a track record of generating new gold/copper targets in greenfield areas e.g. the Cañicapa high sulphidation gold project in southern Ecuador. Our geologists have worked for the private sector, government, and the World Bank. We are qualified to produce NI 43-101-compliant reports.
