Our geological services are personally tailored to suit the needs of you and your project. You can expect fast, friendly, and candid service that will help you succeed by limiting unnecessary expenditures and reducing risk.

Our comprehensive geological services include project management, drone surveys, resource modeling, geological mapping, technical reports and more. 

Project Management

At Burgex, we offer comprehensive project management services to support your team in all phases of exploration, from mapping and drilling to budgeting and execution. Our experienced geologists and skilled professionals can assist with locating specialized contractors and facilitating the permitting process to ensure that your project is completed efficiently and effectively. Additionally, we are equipped to provide data management and report compilation to facilitate informed decision-making for your management team. Whether your project requires short-term or long-term support, we have the resources and expertise to ensure its successful completion.

Drone Survey

We can collect, orthorectify and georeference high resolution images for use in 2D and 3D models to enhance and support exploration, permitting applications, drilling and mine planning. We use state-of-the-art software such as Pix4D, ESRI ArcGIS, and Carlson Mining to process your data to suit your project needs. Drone surveys are critical to complete before any future disturbance is made.

Resource Modeling

The Burgex team, under the leadership of Mr. Balagna possesses the knowledge and experience in exploration, development, and mining to generate block models for resource and reserve estimates. Block modeling is a widely accepted method for accurately modeling resources and reserves through the use of estimation algorithms that consider changes in grade and thickness between drill holes over various distances. Our team can utilize your data to create a comprehensive resource model for your project, which can be incorporated into a technical report in accordance with industry standards such as NI 43-101 or S-K 1300.

Technical Reporting

Technical reporting is an important part of economic geology as it helps to communicate the results of geologic research and exploration to a wide range of audiences, including industry professionals, government regulators, and the general public. There are several common standards for technical reporting in economic geology, including: The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves. The Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) Code, and The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) S-K 1300. The Burgex team has qualified people to assist with these reports.

My Personal Connection with Mining

I have had a personal connection with the mining industry for some time now. Growing up in Utah, the Bingham Canyon Mine was always a part of my landscape. I remember looking down into the pit and thinking, “Wow, that’s a long way down.” My dad worked as an analytical chemist for Phelps Dodge, later Freeport-McMorran, in Safford, Arizona, from 1996 until his retirement in 2021. When traveling through Arizona,

How did you hear about us?


We have been using Burgex for over four years and they have consistently provided high quality and professional service.

We have worked with Burgex for everything from staking, underground exploration and reconnaissance, to ad hoc operational support. They have completed numerous large staking projects for us in the lower 48, always on time and on budget. They also stand by their work, working with us to promptly make corrections and amendments for any issues that may crop up.

I have recommended Burgex to many colleagues and will continue to do so.

Bart Stryhas PhD. CPG. Burgex has assisted me by staking 110 lode claims and subsequently gathering 560 soil samples. Both projects were located in very steep and brushy terrain with limited access. Their work achieved the highest of industry standards. Burgex utilizes strict SOP’s addressing the specific task at hand and the required safety measures. They are very timely in scheduling and complete the project work as requested. Burgex has compiled a team of both seasoned experts with extensive knowledge and capabilities in all aspects of mineral exploration and hard working technicians who pack the stakes and dig the holes! They produce high quality documents and data on time. I will continue to utilize Burgex and highly recommend them to everyone looking for a high quality mineral exploration contractor.
