In Sweden, we are engaged in projects related to geological exploration, permitting processes, and environmental impact assessments. We pride ourselves in being innovative, and we have been a pioneer company in: introducing the methodologies of Social Impact Assessments in natural resource related projects including concerns related to Sami reindeer herding cooperatives; and in using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for conducting geophysical surveys.
Internationally, we are engaged by governments, bi- and multi lateral agencies to lead projects for strengthening and restructuring the mining sector in countries in which the mineral potential is not well utilized, or where mineral sector performance improvements are required. Typical assignments include strategic mineral sector assessments; policy, legal and institutional analysis; institutional capacity development; artisanal and small scale mining (ASM) studies, and; mineral sector promotion.
