LAND AND SURVEYING

GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS

Topographic surveys using GPS (Global Positioning System) technology are performed using differential GPS for centimeter scale accuracy of coordinates in the local UTM system and corrections using processing with links to the National Geodetic Network for a Georeferenced survey. 

GPS consists of a system of satellite navigation that allows one to determine the geographic position anywhere in the world to provide location data for geological, mapping, topographic maps, drill holes and control points, etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOCATION OF DRILL HOLES

AND CONTROL POINTS

ProDeMin uses differential GPS or a total station theodolite accurately locate control points and drill holes after initial location with a handheld GPS

 

LAND STUDIES AND MINING

CONCESSION ADMINISTRATION

ProDeMin has ample experience in performing land studies for areas of interest for exploration as well as the administrative aspects of government filings. We can complete all stages of the process, from preparation of an initial land map, claim staking and necessary professional surveys through the titling of a concession. We can also oversee completion of all administrative functions and follow up work such as preparation and submittal of payments for mining rights, assessment work reports and other filings required by the Mexican Mining Law.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CLAIM STAKING

Preparation and filing of exploration concession applications in accordance with the Mexican Mining Law and its Regulations.

 

PROFESSIONAL SURVEYS

Preparation of the professional surveys required after concession application, which must be performed in accordance with the guidelines and technical specifications that are determined by the Mining Law and its Regulations.

 

CONCESSION REDUCTIONS

Preparation for applications for reduction in surface area and abandonment of mining concessions in accordance with the Mexican Mining Law and its Regulations

ROAD PLANNING AND

CONSTRUCTION

Road planning and construction is an integral part of advancing a project to the drill stage and to provide access to areas to be explored or mined. It is necessary to design roads taking into account the environment, as well as the economic cost and social benefits. Design of roads for construction or mining are an  important part of the feasibility process.
