    We are STEIGER Engineering Bureau STEIGER offers wide array of consultancy services for the mining industry. Your satisfaction is ensured by our commitment to the assignment and practical experience of our engineers.

    Our Motto Our company name comes from the old German mining term „steiger“, which means foreman or overman of the mine. The word is derived from the German word (steige(r)nd) – to rise up or to come to the light and was adopted as a term already in the middle ages. Throughout the history safety has always been the one main concerns in mining. Steiger’s task was to ensure that men who descended into the mine in the morning would safely come back in the evening.

    H O W C A N W E S E R V E Y O U ?

    Understanding the mining projects development

    phases and its key components is imperative to

    succeed. Steiger and its partners have the right

    experience and “know-how” with wide range of

    Mineral Resources. We can therefore provide the

    one shop to go to service when you plan to

    succeed from greenfield all the way to financial

    close or beyond.

    From greenfield to financial close or beyond…

  • Understanding the development area topography

    is one of the first tasks. DEM (Digital elevation

    models) and topographical maps will be created,

    these serve as the base for the planning and

    engineering tasks.

    Topo-geodetic surveys

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • Surface geophysical studies such as seismic

    reflection, gravimetry, electrical resistivity,

    magnetics & electromagnetics and ground

    penetrating radar will help to gather information

    about the deposit prior the investment heavy

    drilling works.

    Geophysical studies

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • Geological evidences of mineralization and

    general geology can be gathered from the ground

    surface in the early stages of the exploration.

    Initial hand samples may be collected and

    analyzed in order to better evaluate the prospect

    of the area and to generate the Exploration


    Target generation and geological mapping

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • Exploration planning is best to be done through a

    project specific tailor made procedures manual

    that will cover all the exploration related activities

    from site to the laboratory together with the

    budget and timeline. The manual incorporates the

    best industry practices and international

    requirements. Following it will help to guarantee

    that the gathered exploration data is useable for

    the upcoming feasibility studies and Mineral

    Resource estimates.

    Exploration drilling

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • Site geologist will ensure that the target coring

    interval and drilling depth is reached. Site

    geologist is also responsible for core handling and

    keeping notes on working conditions and any

    unforeseen situations that could arise or have

    potential adverse impacts on the drilled material.

    Drilling siteworks and supervision done by the

    experienced geologists will ensure the use of best

    industry practices while drilling and the credibility

    of the drilled material.

    Siteworks and supervision

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • The downhole logging such as density & natural

    gamma, resistivity, sonic, caliper, deviation,

    acoustic & optical televiewer, magnetic,

    flowmeter etc. will aid to gather as much data as

    possible from the drilled hole. The acquired data

    is used for geological interpretations and for the

    confirmation of the drilling works quality.

    Downhole logging

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • The lithological and geotechnical logging is usually

    done at the site camp facilities to provide inputs

    for the geological interpretations, mining

    engineering and determination of the correct

    sampling intervals. Information such as lithology,

    color, grain size/sorting, alterations, fractures,

    bedding core recovery, RQD etc.) are usually

    documented and compiled into a log.

    Core and material logging

    Q U A L I T Y C R E A T E S T R U S T


  • Correct sampling and sample preparation

    procedures from cutting to crushing and splitting

    are imperative to make sure that the material

    used in the laboratory testing will represent the

    geological variance as closely to reality as

    possible. Throughout the pre-defined QAQC

    procedures and the Chain of Custody

    documentation the highest transparency can be

  • Resource grade can be tested by a number of

    complicated Resource specific laboratory tests

    and analyzes such as XRF, XRD, ICP-MS, SEM,

    Fischer Assay, Proximate and Ultimate etc.). In

    order to warrant credibility of the test results,
