3 year Geology Milestone

Many thanks to our clients and friends of Entech who have supported us in the journey so far. And thanks to the Geology team of Ruth Jupp, Andrew Finch, Alan Miller, and Luke Barbetti for all their hard work.

Since May 2015, Entech Geology have completed due diligence and Mineral Resource estimations for Australian and Canadian clients spanning advanced exploration through to production.  One area we have been particularly active in is assisting clients to successfully transition from open pit to underground mining.

With the recruitment of Alan during 2017, and Luke in 2018, we have bolstered the capabilities of the team whilst maintaining a geology group with strong operational backgrounds.

One of our strengths is the delivery of fit-for-purpose Mineral Resource estimates that dovetail into mining studies. We work closely with Entech’s Mining and Geotechnical Engineers to ensure an Entech Mineral Resource enables our clients to de-risk the mining and financial decisions required to take a deposit into production and generate cash flow.
