Mineral Evaluation

The Nigerian Geological Survey Agency has the technical expertise in Resource evaluation which is undertaken to quantify the grade and tonnage of any discovered mineral occurrence. This is achieved primarily by drilling to sample the prospective horizon, lode or strata where the minerals of interest occur.

The ultimate aim is to generate a density of drilling sufficient to satisfy the economic and statutory standards of an ore resource. Depending on the financial situation and size of the deposit, the level of detail required to generate this resource and stage at which extraction can commence varies.
