Project Feature: PADCOM, Russell McAuley Deposit
The Potash and Agri Development Corporation of Manitoba (PADCOM) engaged GeoVerra to provide surveying support and expertise in navigating the regulatory environment for the province’s first and only potash mine at the Russell McAuley Deposit. Having previously helped define the regulations for oil and gas exploration in Manitoba, GeoVerra was able to help navigate the similar regulatory environment of this mining project, while working closely with the PADCOM drilling and reservoir engineers to determine the best trajectory for the first two potash production wells. By avoiding troublesome mineral ownership rights and understanding road allowance easements, the team saved costs, minimized royalty issues, expedited environmental approvals, and maximized its pay zone reach.
Technologies to do more.
While there will always be a time and place for traditional surveying, GeoVerra embraces technological innovations to advance the industry and support clients in an increasingly data-driven world. By investing in technology year after year, we’re setting a new standard in reality capture and digital transformation.
“PADCOM is a locally owned company with a focus to develop Manitoba’s potash with a new economic model: sharing the profit to enable people to start businesses and investing in quality of life projects. Being our first potash mine, all the regulations and requirements were new to us. GeoVerra was on call for us 24/7 over 45 days to provide an immediate turnaround of information required by the various governments and agencies. The PADCOM potash mine wouldn’t be where it is today without the GeoVerra team. They were outstanding in helping us through this process.”– Daymon Guillas, President, Potash and Agri Development Corporation of Manitoba Ltd.
