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.
