Consulting Services

Drill Core Pit

Specialist consulting services focus on applied kimberlite geology relating to world-wide diamond exploration, evaluation, mine planning and mine optimisation projects. Investigations are predominantly based on macroscopic and microscopic examinations of representative samples and the application of predictive geology during the development of three dimensional geological models and emplacement models and the interpretation of related datasets. Partnering with clients and other consultants is common. The results of these investigations form the foundation of the resource estimation and classification and associated economic models for primary diamond deposits. Advice can be offered on company activities, such as prospecting priorities, drilling programs, evaluation strategies and mine planning. Scott-Smith Petrology Inc. also undertakes technical audits and project reviews. See also Kimberlite Courses for the professional development of company geologists and enhancement of good practice.
