STUDIES

Wave is a resource development consultant with a leading commercial focus.

In addition to supporting existing producers and developers, we apply our supply chain and market knowledge to identify strategic, high value projects early on and engage with exploration companies to determine strategies for commercialisation.

We deliver study works which facilitate and support necessary commercial activities through to the final investment decision. Our project portfolio spans private and listed project owners and we are recognised with many equity and debt houses domestically and internationally.

Our studies are delivered under our in-house detailed frameworks, which are aligned and compliant with major international standards such as JORC. Similarly, our cost estimates comply with AACE and AUSIMM standards.

Our approach is tailored to the corporate objectives of the owner and focused on delivering maximum value for often limited funds / timing during early project phases. We cover all major study phases from scoping to definitive.
