Geology and Exploration

Geology and Exploration

A mining operation begins with prospecting and exploration -- stages with long periods of investment and high risk of failure. However, prospecting and exploration are necessary forms of investment and insurance for the future of any mining company. 

Geology includes classifying and mapping of the composition and distribution of mineral deposits contained in the earth’s formations. In the mining industry, this knowledge is applied to find additional mineral resources and to upgrade existing resources. Geology has the vital role in the mining industry because it helps to ensure that the minerals are efficiently extracted from the deposits for maximum profit and to locate deposits of important minerals and determine whether the quantities are large enough to make mining economically viable.

Typical work activities of geology in mining industry include: mapping, recording and compiling geological data in and around the mine, exploring, dating and sampling mineral deposits, interpreting  and mapping the geology of a mine, preparing and presenting data; checking the quality levels of materials produced for reserve assessment, classifying resources, assessing geo-techniques, and updating detailed databases.
