You don’t have to be mad to work in mineral exploration these days, but it feels like it helps sometimes. Times remain challenging at the moment for any mineral explorer and, by food-chain logic, so too for service companies such as Aurum.

However, our exploration service model is paying dividends as we commence three European and East African based projects in the final quarter of a difficult and challenging 2013.

The industry slump seems to have levelled out for us and client activity is on the up with more work in the pipeline; signs perhaps, of some recovery in the industry and that our message to clients that Aurum’s flexible model on contract durations and charge-out rates is being heard and acted on.

Our teams of geo-scientists and support staff are here to help in tough financial times, providing the resources and high quality product our clients need, competitively and for only as long as they are needed.

In achieving this Aurum remains busy, raising and maintaining its profile at new and regular trade shows and conference attendances in Canada, Middle East and London and e-marketing activities. In late July a marketing delegation from Aurum commenced a marketing study of the Australian junior market with a trip to Perth, WA attending Africa Down Under 2013 and our marketing activities will continue in the final quarter of the year with Aurum attending and exhibiting at both MENA Mining 2013 in Dubai, UAE in late October as well as London’s Mines and Money in December.
