In line with GCS’s strategic planning the Geology and Exploration unit has been recently established and will complement the services that are currently offered to clients.

The Geology and Exploration unit will offer expert services at all stages of the exploration and evaluation sector of the Mining Life Cycle. With offices in Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria (South Africa), Gaborone (Botswana), Windhoek (Namibia), Lusaka (Zambia) and Ostrava (Czech Republic) GCS is able to service all of Africa.

Geological Services

These services include Desktop studies, geological and prospectivity reviews of projects. We can provide expert advice and assist with designing multi-phase exploration programs to generate exploration targets. Geological analysis is an important component of early stage exploration that utilises geology, structural controls, geophysical datasets and/or specialised geochemical datasets to identify areas with the highest potential targets. Country and commodity assessment are also provided.
