EXPLORATION AND FEASIBILITY of a mining project
Exploration is the first step in this cycle and includes research, field investigations and analysis of the information gathered to determine where the minerals are located.
Mine drilling and mapping for exploitation
The expertise of Forage André Roy Drilling is rooted in the first of the 4 major mineral drilling cycles, namely exploration and feasibility. Mineral exploration has the purpose to identify sites where minerals are technically and financially exploitable. Samples extracted from the site via drilling operation are then used to define the volume and grade of the deposit. Following up on this first step, we then proceed with technical, financial and environmental analyzes.
The nature of the sites often presents considerable challenges for mineral drilling: inaccessibility, difficulty in water supply, low temperatures, etc. But don’t worry, the expertise behind André Roy Drilling operations is particularly distinguishable in difficult conditions. Nothing can stop our specialists!
