Geochemical exploration surveys range from heavy mineral concentrates to partial-leach soil surveys to lithogeochemistry. Survey design is the most important step especially in selecting sample spacing and analytical procedures. ASL has experience with a wide range of survey types, in glacial to lateritic terrain, and can assist in developing appropriate protocols. ASL specializes in partial leach technology, built on its experience managing the $600,000 CAMIRO project that evaluated a variety of techniques.
Most laboratories now provide multi-element packages with a distracting amount of elements. ASL can efficiently process the data to maximize the value of the information and uses a range of statistical methods that vector to mineralization.
