Archaeological surveys

Our team of Australian archaeologists and anthropologists brings extensive experience in coordinating Aboriginal archaeological surveys to meet the requirements of the project and legislation. This allows us to inform stakeholders effectively. We have extensive experience in providing archaeological geophysical surveys, archaeological field surveys, aerial archaeology surveys and more.

Over the years, we have cultivated strong partnerships with various Indigenous Australian Native Title groups, fostering close working relationships through our work. We approach every project with respect for the privilege of working on country with Traditional Owners and Cultural Custodians, considering it an honour to contribute to significant initiatives in collaboration with Indigenous Australian communities.

Transparency and Ethics

Trace Enterprises, provides trusted expert opinions, built on transparency and a strong ethical foundation. We always maintain open and direct communication with the team, our clients and all relevant stakeholders, seeking to build positive relationships between all parties involved on a project. Having previously worked with many mining proponents, we bring with us a wealth of knowledge in the correct approach and processes. We use these insights to coordinate heritage surveys from the field seamlessly.

Integrated heritage management for mining and exploration projects

Our team ensures meticulous organisation throughout the process, guaranteeing that heritage considerations are seamlessly integrated into mining operations. With our support, our mining and exploration clients can navigate the complexities of heritage management confidently, meeting regulatory requirements and fostering positive relationships with Indigenous communities.

In reciprocity, we share our archaeological expertise, fostering empowerment and mutual benefit for all parties involved.
