Are you geomodelling?
we can help

If you are creating a geomodel we can assist by recommending algorithms for populating facies, we can also take your geomodeler to outcrops where they can better understand connectivity and compartmentalization

Exploration Geology

Need mining core described? how about assistance in exploring for sediment-hosted metals such as placer Gold, Silver, Platinum and Uranium? We have you covered!

Geology Field Trips

We can design field trips catered to your business needs and find the best possible analogs. Send us a message and tell us a bit about your reservoir and the number of days you would like to spend looking at outcrops.

Exploration Geology

We can perform detailed geological evaluations or provide a quick-n-dirty pre-feasibility analysis of your acreage for Uranium, Vanadium, Rare Earth Elements, Copper and more.

Consulting services in evaporites

Whether you want to get Potash or Rock Salt (Halite) core described or would like a Gypsum deposit mapped for cement we can do it for you.

Salt Tectonics

Our team of experts have worked on mobile substrate basins across the globe. Whether you are dealing with shale tectonics in Nigeria or Salt Tectonics in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico give us a call.

Seismic Stratigraphy

Don't get stuck with yet another Exxon-style outdated seismic stratigraphy course! let us train you or assist you in the latest developments in seismic stratigraphy. We have a proven record of providing our clients with leads that resulted in discoveries.

Core Description Services

We spend over 100 days out in the field every year. Looking at modern and ancient depositional systems in trenches and comparing those with world-class outcrops. This allows us to bring insight to core description that many of our competitors lack.

Unconventional Resource Plays

Our collective experience spans some of the top shale and tight-oil sandstone plays in the US including the Wolfcamp, Bone Spring, Avalon, Utica, Marcellus, Niobrara, Eagleford, Barnett, Bakken, Frontier, Parkman, Codell, and more.

Structural Geology Consulting

Our structural geologists have highly diverse backgrounds from characterization of fractured reservoirs to seismic interpretation and geohazards. Don't miss our 2021 selection of online training in structural geology!

Dr. Lawrence Carter specialises in the formation of magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits, with expertise in integrating macro-scale field observations with multiple layers of micro-scale textural, geochemical and geochronological data. His PhD focused on unravelling the archetypal Yerington porphyry system of Nevada, with publications including a Scientific Reports’ ‘Top 100’ of 2022. After this he gained Post-Doc research experience on the EU Horizon 2020 GREENPEG project, developing exploration tools for Li pegmatites before moving back into consultancy, offering exploration and applied research services.  Prior to developing his expertise in magmatic-hydrothermal systems, Lawrence worked for BP in Operations, Wellsite, and Well Planning geology roles after completing an MSc in Mining Engineering and BSc in Applied Geology at Camborne School of Mines. He continue to provide exploration and research consultancy services to major-, mid-tier-, and junior-mining companies around the globe.
