Ginger SOFRECO designed the exploration programme in order to upgrade the resources to the measured category in compliance with the JORC code.
The works included RC drilling, geophysical down-the-hole logging, petrographic studies, chemical assays.
Ginger SOFRECO’s services included contracting, supervision, QA/QC, logging and sampling.
The obtained data were used in geological and mineral resource modeling.
Ginger SOFRECO assisted AUPLATA in processing all available data for a set of deposits, and rolling out a methodology for cost and time efficient mineral resource estimate.
Ginger SOFRECO is carrying out the following services:
- Analysis of the exploration method and mineral resource estimation for nickel ore in lateritic deposits.
- Audit of methods and procedures for mineral resource estimate including the benchmarking with JORC standard.
- Identification of areas for improvement and preparation of recommendations.
Technical assistance in geological mapping, geochemical surveys, structural and petrographic analyses in Niger. We issued two geological maps for Sud-Maradi and Damagaran-Mounio at 1:100 000 and 1: 200 000 scales.
The maps were accompanied by geological notices prepared according to the international standards. Our teams also supported the preparation of metallurgical and geophysical maps.
Technical assistance to the Government of Gabon to improve the geology & resources information system, contribute to integration into the Kimberley process, and develop geological and geotechnical map of the cities of Libreville and Owendo.
Additional activities contributed to the preparation of the Metallogenic Atlas and capacity building of the mineralogical laboratory.
