We are Africa's leading mineral exploration and resource development consultancy

Globally, there is an ever increasing demand of mineral resources due to rapid urbanization and industrialization. This has brought tremendous pressure on these resources and created the need for better utilization and sustainable exploration practices.

RMSI provides technical and consulting solutions to mining companies spanning all phases of the exploration cycle – from due diligence, mapping, surveys, to resource estimation.

RMSI has a focused engagement model, where the on-site operations are handled by our local experts and the core mapping and interpretation activities are undertaken at our global research centre in India. We have a multidisciplinary team comprising of expert geologists, geophysicists and earth scientists that bring forth domain expertise and technological innovation to each project.

Through our customized and innovative solutions, we significantly reduce the operational costs and turnaround time for our clients by minimizing the number of exploratory drilling, thereby maximizing their return on investments.  We have a large presence in the African continent with a project footprint in 15 African countries and 5 countries in South East Asia.

Defining Mineral Resource Corridors

RMSI has proven experience in defining mineral resource corridors through advanced analysis of the client’s existing geological data and prospects. Our offering includes a dynamic ‘Mineral resource corridor decision support system’, that integrates all existing databases into a  single platform. The system runs a variety of analytics to highlight a priority mineral corridor. The application is ‘Dynamic’ in nature as it has the capability to import new databases and define new mineral corridor based on the updated data. The DSS includes various data layers and scenarios designed for analyses including:

  • Mineral occurrence
  • Infrastructure
  • Water resource
  • Landuse & landcover
  • Mineral lease holding
  • Socio-economic
  • Population density
