Industrial and Strategic Minerals

Industrial and Strategic Minerals

Industrial minerals are used for their chemical and physical properties in a huge variety of industrial processes – each with its own specific requirements. So how can you make sure your exploration programme, mine and mineral processing design are best suited to meet market demand? 

Quality isn’t an absolute concept here. It has to be verified against a wide range of applications and the overall profitability of the project.  The rapid depletion of naturally “pure” industrial mineral deposit and the sustainable management of mineral resources are focussing attention on low grades or “difficult” mineralisations that call for an integrated approach.

Combining geological, mineralogical, mining, processing, environmental and marketing experience we can help in each phase of your project. Our areas of expertise cover everything from clays, carbonates and dimension stones to phosphate, potash, fluorspars, feldspars and silica - as well as highly strategic commodities such as niobium, tantalum, heavy minerals and rare earth elements.

Our experience draws on a wealth of projects including scoping and feasibility studies, processing test work programmes, CPR and NI 43-101 reserve assessments. Many of our highly experienced professional team members are recognised worldwide as leading authorities in their field.
