Mineral Exploration, Mining & Processing

It’s not just a job, our skilful group of engineers, geologists and technical personals are really passionate about mineral exploration, mining and processing industries.
Brantel Mineral Exploration and Mining Services (BMEMS) was established as a supportive hand to survey the opportunities to invest in the mining sector in Sri Lanka. Established in early 2010, BMEMS now operates in Africa, Austrasia and Mideast with operation offices in Sri Lanka and Oman.

MINERAL EXPLORATION

BMEMS actively involves in the mineral exploration programs for its own projects as well as for other clients in order to identify economically viable mineral deposits such as heavy mineral sands(HMS), Chromite, Manganese, Copper and Iron ore and etc. Services are offered under the guidance of senior geological consultants with highest calibre to provide unique geological solutions for mining activities as listed below.

  • Field Mapping –Identify potential new deposits through geological and structural mapping.
  • Geophysical Investigation- Perform geophysical methods such as Electrical ( VES, CVES , SP and IP) , Electromagnetic ( FDEM and TDEM ) , Magnetic , Ground Penetrate Radar( GPR) and Gravity for potential mineralized zones.
  • Drilling- Conduct drilling program with the company owned drill rigs or hired one by taking care of all aspects of the programme and to make sure that core and/or chips get logged, sampled and modelled to perfection.
  • Sample Analysis – Carry out XRF( in field and Laboratory level) for oxides , AAS( in Laboratory) for elements and grain counting methods for the mineral sands.
  • Project Design- Plan, prepare, execute and publicly reported substantial technical report, EIA (environment impact assessment) or needy other environment management plans in order to open new mines.
