Geology & Technical Reporting

Determining whether a property is profitable for development in an economically sound manner can be compared to a hard puzzle. Taking clues from the surface as well as from deep within the earth, and then drawing on experience, geologists can make sense of the complexity that presents itself in all aspects of the mining cycle.


WSP’s geological expertise includes site evaluations, geoscientific data compilations, sampling, drilling planning and monitoring, 3D modelling, geostatistics, resource estimates, and preparation of technical reports.

One of the critical pieces to a project in Canada is the continual filing of National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-01) Technical Reports (there are other comparable reports in Australia, Europe, and South Africa). These structured reports provide investors with independently verified information on every conceivable aspect to aid the investment decision from the geoscientific and engineering perspectives.

With WSP’s long history of signing off sections of a Technical Report as ‘Qualified Persons’, our clients trust us for complete understanding of the regulatory and compliance environment of reporting issuers that bears on successful NI 43-101 Technical Report research and writing.

WSP Qualified Persons are multilingual experts specializing in precious metals, base metals, minor metals, and bulk commodities. Our engineers and geoscientists are also Qualified Persons in ore resource/reserve calculation and geostatistical analysis in Scoping Studies and Preliminary Economic Assessments. Our mining and mineral processing engineers complete the team with specific skills needed to lead Pre-feasibility Studies and Feasibility Studies.

Other geological services include:

  • Property Assessments
  • Mineral Exploration Planning and Execution
  • Reports Reconciliation
  • Pre-feasibility Studies
  • Feasibility Trade-Off Studies
  • QA / QC Program Reviews
  • Due Diligence & Acquisition Review
