What is Mineral Exploration?

Our main area of business is the supply of field equipment for mineral exploration. Mineral exploration is the sampling, analysis and write up of potential mining, quarrying or dig sites. Before a company can begin the extraction of raw materials on a large scale basis, they must first ensure that a particular site has potential economically. Therefore exploration geologists and geological consultants are employed to work in the field and collect numerous samples, sometimes soil, sometimes drill cores or both for lab analysis, this is a long and arduous process.
