There are many geological consultancies out there at a time of economic uncertainty, but why should you hire XPLORE.GLOBAL? 


Here are the TOP 5 reasons:

We are distinguished geologists having received CGeol and EurGeol chartershipfrom recognised professional associations. Benedikt is a recognised expert in geochemical exploration and exploration targeting currently publishing topical papers in the geoscience community. Over the years Benedikt has developed a passion for teaching and knowledge dissemination to students and professionals, being regularly invited to many academic institutions across Europe as a guest lecturer.


We have visited and worked in some of the world’s most prospective metallogenetic belts, including the Zambian Copperbelt, Damaran Orogenic Belt in Namibia and hydrocarbon-prospective basins in Russia and SE Asia. We have adopted an integrative approach of using hard-rock geological data in conjunction with other geoscientific datasets and modelling/database software. Therefore, we have learned to excel as field geologists whilst also developing strong office-based interpretational/ modelling skills.


We started our careers in international geoscience consultancies and Benedikt subsequently spent many years working for Rio Tinto, regarded as one of the largest mining and mineral exploration companies on the global stage. We have therefore experienced a number of different organisations, work cultures and ethics. This makes us employable across a broad range of different settings, cultures and environments.


Working for Rio Tinto has inspired us to adopt a best practice working mentality, with regards to technical matters, health & safety, communities, compliance and integrity. We have pride in our slogan ‘Passionate. Driven. Reliable.”


Having led international teams in the field under remote, harsh and inhospitable conditions, we earned the respect and trust of colleagues, superiors and communities. This has taught us patience, communication, organisational and leadership skills invaluable for any project worldwide.
