The HDI geology and exploration group is focused on locating and defining the earth's mineral resources, supporting the Business Development team in identifying and assessing projects of interest, and the planning and executing of a broad range of data collection surveys for HDI's mineral exploration and development projects.
Field work is complemented by the activities of the resource and database department, which compiles, analyzes and verifies the resource database for the modeling of mineral deposits, estimation of mineral resources and reserves, and the writing of qualified 43-101 technical reports.
