Minerals inspection

In addition to verifying that the condition of the carrier (rail, truck and vessel) is appropriate, Verificae offers complete cargo inspections before, during and after shipment. Reliable and independent weight, quantity and quality inspections ensure the contractual compliance of your shipments.

Our objective verification and inspection team provide accurate, transparent documentation and always represent your interests during the handling of your bulk cargo by being in full time attendance at every operational stage, ensuring you receive a constant and direct flow of information.

Stockpile evaluation

Stockpiles must be measured to determine contained volume and weight of the commodity contained within. To do that, we use modern laser-based instrumental method in which the entire surface area is visible. We can then provide you with accurate measurements of mineral stockpiles at ports and manufacturing facilities. We work with you to obtain a complete and accurate measurement of the volume and weight of your commodity. Accurate stockpile evaluation and measurement provide you with a number of benefits including:

  • Transparent evaluation of the inventory for financial reports, excise duty, loans
  • Compliance with national and other regulatory requirements
  • Data to help plan and manage your purchasing and stock administration

This ensures that damage, loss or alienation of goods are identified as quickly as possible and remedial actions – including insurance claims, if appropriate – taken promptly, sensibly reducing the financing party’s operation risks.
