Geology & Mineral Exploration
The purpose of mineral exploration is to identify ore bodies and promising deposits to get an overview over the available mineral resources for a mining project. Our geologists offer various exploration services for mining companies. DMT offers its clients professional guidance on all stages of mineral exploration, from grass roots exploration to target definition, drilling, sampling and geological modelling.
DMT’s staff will also, if required, undertake any aspect of the mineral exploration on the client’s behalf. We have a highly flexible approach and are willing just to provide support and advice as necessary or alternatively to augment the client’s exploration team with our own professional staff and to train and advise them and work along side them, as required.
Our staff, who are proficient in the complete range of exploration techniques, include highly experienced geophysical teams proficient in both survey and interpretation. Moreover DMT has experience of virtually all types of mineral deposits and in working in all climates and in extremely isolated areas.

We also offer exploration studies for risky exploration work in the field of geothermal energy and for coal seam/mine gas as well as carbon capture and storage. DMT locates and analyses potential geothermal sources for you, help you reduce drilling risks, and show you how to improve your productivity. Learn more
Thanks to our roots in coal mining, we can also provide you with comprehensive advice on all aspects of coal seam/mine gas as well as the safe commercial exploitation of methane gas. Since Carbon capture and storage are becoming increasingly relevant, we help you identify suitable geological structures for storing CO2 and other gases and provide geological modeling and other planning measures.
