Evaporites and brines – geological, hydrological and chemical aspects of resource estimation.
Our new publication is available from the link below. 

Modern salt lakes are complex systems which are exploited for a variety of minerals, including solid and dissolved phases (brines). Phases commonly exploited include lithium, potassium and boron minerals, mainly from brines, and solid minerals including halite and gypsum. Resource estimation and successful exploitation of either solid minerals or brines require good understanding of the complex interactions within these systems. This includes careful definition of climate, geology, hydrogeology (hydrology), fluid flow dynamics and lastly chemical ion concentrations. Therefore estimation involves multidisciplinary team work.

Geos Mining, through its associate partners, Salix Alba, is able to offer more certainty to valuations by measuring the affect that each variable, or combination of variables, has on an overall valuation. 
Our new service deals with the risks and levers, by showing the impact of changes in key variables. In addition, for key risks such as commodity price and exchange rate, the modelling shows the likelihood of change, so that their relative significance as a driver of business value can be fully assessed.

Although uranium demand is in the doldrums right now, several supply and demand forecasts indicate that there will be a large and unavoidable supply deficit around 2020, as global demand outpaces supply.

While our new federal government has said that they will follow through with their promise to repeal the carbon pricing mechanism, the earliest that this change can take place will be 1 July 2014. 

Therefore, liable entities under the Clean Energy Act will still have to report and pay the carbon price for their greenhouse gas emissions for the current financial year. If the coal in your open cut mine has a lower gas content than the default content provided by "method one", you may benefit from moving to a site-specific fugitive emission factor.
