FWS senior staff have significant experience in the design of resource estimation programmes, data storage, validation and interpretation; geological modelling and mineral resource/ore reserve estimation; and reporting in accordance with international resources reporting codes such as JORC (2012) and NI 43-101.

Our consultants have extensive experience in the design, implementation, and reporting of mineral resource estimation programmes with skills in the following areas:


  • Drilling and Sampling: Selecting the appropriate drill method, wireline suite (for coal exploration or geotechnical investigation), sample method, sample spacing and assay technique is key to designing a successful resource estimation programme and is specific to each deposit type and commodity. Our consultants are highly experienced in the design and implementation of resource estimation programmes.


  • Data Integrity and Validation: Our experience includes the validation of a Client’s existing data; design of appropriate sampling protocols and assay techniques; and implementation and monitoring of QA/QC data. This is essential to code-compliant resource reporting and provides robust, reliable and repeatable results to maximise confidence in the resource estimation.


  • Geological Interpretation and Modelling: Our expertise allows resource estimates to accurately reflect the geological controls on mineralisation in combination with relevant statistical analysis, providing the Client with the confidence to proceed on a sound scientific foundation. Our staff and associates are experienced in the modelling of data in 2D and 3D for accurate resource estimation.


  • Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve Estimation: Our consultants are qualified to report and sign-off on exchange compliant mineral resource and mineral reserve statements for a diverse range of commodities and deposit types, including coal, precious and base metals, agro-minerals and industrial minerals.
