Your trusted partners for your geological exploration projects.

MRB & associates has earned an exemplary reputation for its quality of geotechnical and geoscientific services, attention to detail and problem solving abilities. These qualities are reflected by the success of our client's projects.

Core logging facility

Core cutting and sampling

Collection of geophysical and lithogeochemical drill-core attribute data

Rigorous QA/QC protocols

MRB & associates operates a secure core logging facility, including a fully equipped core sawing room adjacent to its commercial offices. Core logging and sample-interval selection is carried out by professional geologists working for MRB or the client, in cooperation with the Project Geologist. All observations are digitally captured in a core-logging program (e.g., GEMS LOGGERTM and GeoticLogTM).


If requested, trained MRB employees will scan drill-core to record magnetic susceptibility and conductivity data using a PPG probe and will collect quantitative and qualitative multi-element data using a portable XRF spectrometer. MRB has developed importation procedures that allow the transfer of data from these devices into the most common core-logging softwares.

We highlight the full potential of your mining properties

Increase your chance for drill success with geological data visualization!

Our technical team can generate multi-layer geological maps with base-map information (topography, phsiography, claims, etc.) from digital data integrated into the Geoscience ANALYSTTM software package. In addition, 3D models utilizing multi-discipline geoscience data can be generated and viewed for promotional, as well as interpretive purposes. 


Mineralized Zone and Drill-holes

MRB can prepare an interpreted mineralized-zone “solid”, with oriented drill-hole traces, to help visualize the geometric distribution of mineralized drill-hole intersections.

Satellite Imagery and Mineral Concessions

A satellite image can be draped over the digital terrain model (DTM) to help visualize the physiography of the area. Adding a mineral claim layer helps to show the property topography.

Airborne Magnetic Survey, Magnetic Inversion, Resource Estimates

An example of integrated 2D geophysical data, 3D inversion magnetic data and a Mineral Resource Estimate block model.

Interactive 3D Models

MRB geological team specializes in integrating gelogical data in interactive 3D models with GOCADTM and Geoscience AnalystTM.
