Geominex geologists do more than manage and supervise the core business of exploration. Evaluation and review of existing data, geochemical sampling, geophysical programs, mapping, drilling, data management and interpretation – and most importantly quality control – are at the forefront of a Geominex geologist's mind. Geominex provides critical support activities including mobilisation logistics, community and government liaison, and the training of local crews in hard-to-get-to regions and developing countries.
