The desk study of the project in pre-field work is the cornerstone in the development of the work plan to be completed.
The term “desk study” simply refers to a study that is carried out purely through research, rather than physical investigations, that is, it can be done sitting at a desk. Specifically, the term “desk study” is often referring to the process of gathering background information about site-specific characteristics that will need to be considered during planning and design of exploration programs.
A well-executed desk study can help to formulate exploration work programs and targeting specific areas of mineralization potentials.
Desk study should include available data covering aspects such as the geological, structural, topographical, geographical, environmental and logistical aspects as well as exploration history of the area.
The source of information for desk studies the published and unpublished academic studies, scientific journals, scientific research institutions, industrial enterprises as well as our in-house database. Our extensive in-house database also provides a valuable source of information with respect to anticipated mineralization conditions and potential geological or mining issues.
