Advisory services to the mineral industry
Geological consulting and project generation
BFS is principally engaged in assessing and developing early stage mineral exploration projects, primarily in Southeast Asia. It has promising prospects in Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar, as well as in Turkey. BFS is incorporated in Hong Kong.
BFS also provides consulting services to the mineral industry for a wide range of metals and industrial minerals, including precious and base metals, gypsum, potash, and colored gemstones. It covers exploration through feasibility, mine-planning, and production as well as commodity market analyses.
BFS has extensive knowledge of the geology of Southeast Asian deposits through its exclusive geological database. The database includes geographic information on mineral deposits as well as geology, ownership, mining history, and country factors such as investment, economic, and political risk conditions. This database, maintained on an ongoing basis, is an exclusive asset and an important tool of BFS' advisory services.
BFS maintains an up-to-date knowledge base on the geology of the region through in-house research work, the systematic collection of current and historic publications and research, and by maintaining a network of experts in the region. This allows the understanding of mineralization models and processes, and therefore the confidence in advising clients.
Members, geologists and mining engineers are Dutch, Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian, Australian, Turkish and Canadian and have a combined 100+ years’ experience in mineral projects in the sub-region, covering early exploration as well as late stage economic evaluations and feasibility work.
