Environmental – Social – Governance is a key aspect of any current or future project. At Resource Stack we have a team of experienced geoscientists who can assist in addressing the environmental requirements of your project, whether it be a new discovery or an active mining operation.
The cost of data acquisition from drillcore for environmental geochemistry risks is minor compared to the cost of collecting the sample. Collection of environmental data addresses JORC Code reporting for environmental factors, which demonstrates to potential investors that ESG issues have been considered, with data available. Such requirements are likely to increase with time.
Our team here at Resource Stack recommend that key project samples are tested for environmental geochemistry related risks. The data does not need to be analysed beyond acceptable QA/QC processes and therefore provides a database for future project developments. The Geoenvironmental setting and commodity type will provide guidance on what tests need to be undertaken, which can include:
- Acid and Metalliferous Drainage (AMD) potential
- asbestiform (fibrous) minerals
- spontaneous Combustion
- greenhouse Gas emissions
- carcinogenic compounds
Contact our team to find out how such data can be gathered. To make it simple for our clients we can manage the entire process from sample selection through to database management to provide confidence that environmental issues have been considered
