BEYOND THE FIELD

For when you need a deeper understanding

Hive loves a challenge, and getting right into the details of a project really excites us.

We have spent the last few years listening to our clients, learning from academia and coming up with unique solutions to modern exploration problems.

EARLY STAGE METALLURGY

Hive has teamed up with SGS Minerals to develop an early stage metallurgical test for precious metal recoveries. Read more below!

MINERALOGY

Hive is working with SGS Minerals and Precision Petrographics to produce a range of thin sections, QEMSCAN data, deportment studies or polished specimens

STRENGTHEN YOUR PROJECT

Early Stage Metallurgy

Metallurgical studies reveal a wealth of information about a deposit, but is usually reserved for a later stage in a program. Through this early stage testing, we can really bolster geological theories and help with confidence.

INVESTOR CONFIDENCE

Knowing a project has favorable properties ahead of multi-year projects lets your investor base know that you take spending seriously.

BETTER TARGETTING

Understanding the mineralogy of the deposit aids in the targeting and development of a project site.

PERMITTING SUPPORT

Having a good understanding of the potential of a site helps to bolster permit applications with 'hard evidence'.

SHOW US YOUR SULFOSALTS

Mineralogical Studies

We can take your rock samples and undertake a range of advanced studies either in-house of with one of our lab partners:

CHIP ANALYSIS

Creating descriptions of rocks from a site based on hand or chip samples.

QEMSCAN

Working with SGS Labs, we can study sections with QEMSCAN and create advanced profiles of the minerals and metals in your rock samples.

THIN SECTIONS

With our partners, Precision Petrographics, we can create thin sections for study under the microscope.

WE DIG FOSSILS!

Paleontology

It is a bit of a dying art, but we are bringing life back to it! Radiolaria, diatoms, pollen - we love it all! We are also down to deal with the big stuff too!

MICROFOSSILS

Radiolaria, diatoms, pollen - we can identify and interpret the microfossil content of your samples.

CURATION

We can advise on how to collect and preserve samples for study, and how to curate them into a collection.

BIGGER STUFF

Plant, animal and trace fossils are also useful for determining a range of parameters, from age to paleoenvironment, and we can help you build that profile.
