Whether your company is just getting started or is already well established, there comes a time when you might need additional support or perhaps to sub-contact a particular phase of work to an external group or consultant. Rocklore can provide the capability that you need to ensure that your shareholders have confidence in your exploration and development strategy. We operate worldwide and work for junior explorers as well as for large established producers.

Programme Management

Rocklore has supported projects in numerous countries and at every stage of development. Programme management involves a large number of factors, including: governance, alignment, assurance, integration, finances, infrastructure, planning, risk and communications.
We can help you to manage your programme, either as a short-term, interim solution or as a long-term, embedded partner. Programme management may include, but is not limited to: geophysical surveys, drilling programmes, community engagement, sampling, QAQC, logistics, road building, environmental studies, NGO engagement, joint-venture partner liaison and security management.

Programme Design

The systematic and scientific design of a programme, including the selection of the most appropriate techniques, is essential to ensuring effective expenditure of funds and optimising the chances of success. Whether support to programme design is ad-hoc, periodical or dedicated full-time, a project’s stage of development and the client’s short and long-term objectives must be considered when designing a programme and the associated life support and logistical services required to maintain field operations.

Remote Sensing & Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Survey

Airborne surveys are often expensive and logistically complex. The deployment of lightweight and easily transportable aircraft and equipment and small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) can bring aerial surveying within reach of those end users that previously were unable to afford it. Date sets that can be acquired include: geophysics, imagery, hyperspectral and LiDAR. Data purchase, processing and analysis is also a highly specialised area of expertise where Rocklore can deliver highly specialised associate expertise.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

An effective QAQC plan is essential to ensure that data is accurate, precise and collected in compliance to international codes on the reporting of mineral resources. This plan must be implemented from the onset of activity to ensure that all data produced is reliable and appropriate. We can review historical data to provide guidance for due diligence or its suitability for integration with present day exploration and development. We can also advise on the various software and hardware options available in the minerals sector for the collection, storage, management and analysis of data

Technical Support

Technical support can help you to maintain efficiency by limiting delays and downtime due to equipment failure. Having worked in the climatic and environmental extremes of the minerals exploration and development sector we can advise on a wide range of technical issues. These issues might be related to specialised equipment such as drilling rigs or geophysical instruments or more simply the company’s vehicle fleet. We can also advise on options to bring niche technical expertise out to your project site to install, repair or train your personnel.
