Drill Program Design and Management

TECHNICAL  |  STRATEGIC  |  COORDINATED  |  SAFE

Drilling exploration campaigns have high stakes, and typically have high operational costs, so it is important that programs are properly designed and coordinated to ensure maximum efficiency while maintaining a safe work environment. For everything ranging from modeling and technical planning to budgeting and contractor management, we provide our clients with experienced project managers and teams that support the successful design and execution of drilling programs.

Geological Technical Reporting

TECHNICAL  |  EFFICIENT  |  TAILORED  |  SAFE

Reports and evaluations are key mechanisms for communicating for compliance, investors, project teams, safety, government agencies, etc., often requiring significant reporting by licensed professionals. Big Rock provides a variety of technical, safety and regulatory reporting services customized for any project.

Land Acquisition and Claim Staking

LICENSED  |  EXPERIENCED  |  STRATEGIC  |  SAFE

Acquiring ownership of natural resource assets (water, minerals, surface, timber, etc.) requires proper legal actions through numerous agencies. With deep experience in many different acquisitions and project permitting throughout North America, our team provides success in navigating permits required for exploration, drilling, environmental, and mining.

Geological Mapping and Sampling Programs

TECHNICAL  |  EFFICIENT  |  TAILORED  |  SAFE

Mapping is an essential component for targeting deposits, project planning, and resource development. Big Rock utilizes GIS mapping software to visually display and analyze numerous layers of data. This enables our clients to process large amounts of technical information conveyed simply and effectively through a visual medium.

We provide clients with reliable quality assurance and cost-effective sampling solutions. Sampling soils, rocks, water, and vegetation provides a critical insight into the geochemical signature of any area. Tailoring strategies for each project maximizes potential.

Chips and Soils Logging

TECHNICAL  |  THOROUGH  |  EXPEDIENT  |  PROFESSIONAL

A sampling program is only as good as its documentation.  Big Rock’s highly trained and qualified technical staff provides detailed rock chip and soils logging to help clients maximize the value of data gathered through sampling programs.

GIS and 3D Modeling

TECHNICAL  |  THOROUGH  |  EXPEDIENT  |  PROFESSIONAL

Computer and 3D modeling helps to bring complicated data to life and enables advanced targeting and analytics. Statistical, thematic, and other techniques are used to visually display complex datasets. We use a variety of tools for modeling, including ArcGIS©, Vulcan©, LeapFrog©, and others, to deliver cost effective solutions for 3D models without the need for specialists and tech support.

Data Management

INVESTIGATIVE  |  TAILORED  |  MONITORED  |  SAFE

Good field data collection is a critical step in the exploration process, but data management is the key to leveraging field data for business decision-making. Big Rock uses industry standard methodology and best-in-class software solutions to provide clients with secure and timely access to data and to export charts, maps, and other customized data outputs to support client documentation needs for communicating with compliance, investors, project teams, safety, government agencies, and more.

Petrography

TECHNICAL  |  QUALITY  |  INVESTIGATIVE  |  SAFE

Petrographic reports are often static documents that lack the ability to grow with new learning of geologic systems. We’ve reimagined microscopy by transforming one-and-done documents into high-resolution samples with endless possibilities. Big Rock Exploration’s proprietary technology delivers all the advantages of petrography, including high resolution imagery collection and delivery, without the necessity of owning a microscope.

Geophysical Surveys

TECHNICAL  |  EFFICIENT  |  TAILORED  |  SAFE

Geophysical surveys help identify subsurface geological structures and rock types that may be associated with targeted resources, including minerals, water, and energy resources. Big Rock employs ground magnetics as a cost-effective way to get targeted geophysics data – even on remote projects or difficult terrane. Big Rock combines data from direct methods of exploration with systematic geophysical survey data to assess the characteristics of subsurface soil and rock over large areas.

Permitting and Project Compliance

TECHNICAL  |  INVESTIGATIVE  |  METHODICAL  |  SAFE

Big Rock has considerable expertise in navigating permitting and project compliance on projects across North America. From working with the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to the federal, state, and county agencies overseeing various environmental, water, solid waste, and other project-specific permits, Big Rock is a trusted partner to guide clients through the permitting process on public and private lands.
