Exploration and evaluation of mineral salt
resources are multi stage processes, whether the valuable salt is
contained in a underground deposit, as natural brine in the pore
volume of rocks or in lakes on the earth`s surface. By each step
the knowledge about the deposit increases, but the exploration
costs increase even more. After each step, therefore a decision
has to be made, whether or not there is a reasonable chance that
the raw material can be exploited and processed economically. This
requires firstly an interpretation of the available exploration
data by experienced geoscientists. Moreover, it needs the
understanding of extraction and processing technology even in the
stage of exploration too.
GROUP OF COMPANIES
provides both under one roof, excellent
geological staff paired by know-how of our well-experienced mining
and drilling engineers as well as the process designers and
processing engineers to carry out realistic statement about the
geological resources and the mineable reserves.
The service starts with a critical examination
of all available data about the deposit which are then used to
develop a geologic 3D model of the deposit as base for exploration
concepts. Geological field work, core logging, sampling and
drilling supervision is included in the entire scope.
For assaying ERCOSPLAN cooperates with
certified research labs with high reputation which are specialised
on the field of mineral salt analysis. Beside traditional tools in
mineral salt deposit evaluation ERCOSPLAN uses recent software
tools for calculation and visualisation of the deposit‘s

All the results are used for resource/reserve
estimates and calculations in accordance with international
classification codes, like CIM and JORC.
Furthermore several of our geologists are registered as European Geologists for assuring
quality standards according to international practice. A Qualified Person as per National Instrument NI 43-101 can therefore
always grant the quality and comprehensiveness of your project.
