eDNA provides powerful data for tracking progress towards biodiversity targets

We help businesses in the mining and extractives industries to assess and manage biodiversity risk at all stages of the project lifecycle, from exploration and baselining to closure and restoration.

Across multiple habitats and environments, we work with you to add cutting edge molecular tools to your monitoring programmes. The data we provide helps track progress towards goals such as Net Positive Impact and No Net Loss of biodiversity.

Simple environmental sampling kits can be used by your staff or contractors on the ground to assess biodiversity and monitor trends throughout an asset’s operational life cycle. This lets managers make more informed decisions to effectively mitigate impacts, while reducing effort, costs and safety risks commonly associated with monitoring.

Include DNA-based biodiversity monitoring in your ecological survey design with NatureMetrics

Here are just some of the ways our technologies can be applied:

Critical species and endangered species detection during scoping and baseline phases.

Comprehensive biodiversity baselines to identify site risks and inform future monitoring.

Year-round water quality and biodiversity assessment conducted by non-specialist on-site personnel.

Monitor progress towards Net Positive Impact, Nature Positive or Biodiversity Net Gain goals.

Track restoration and rehabilitation success for mine closure.

Long term monitoring and trend analysis of ecosystems and community composition in relation to impacts.

DNA-based monitoring with NatureMetrics

NatureMetrics makes eDNA surveys easy. Our end-to-end service includes easy-to-use sampling kits, logistics support, laboratory analysis and data processing. We provide professional reports and support with interpretation and data analysis where required.

Our expert team can also help you design an eDNA sampling campaign to suit your project’s location and needs, and we can provide training for your staff and contractors, either online, in person or on-site – get in touch to find out more.

Samples you can send to our labs for analysis include:

eDNA from Water
Species from faeces
DNA from soils and sediments
Invertebrates

We take the pain out of taxonomic identification of insects and other invertebrates by letting the DNA sequencer do the work. Invertebrates are abundant and diverse, making them excellent indicators of ecological change.

Steve Jones - Nature Metrics

“Conducting biodiversity surveys at the landscape scale has historically been difficult and time-consuming. Many of these obstacles are overcome by DNA-based monitoring. We can increase the efficiency of your on-the-ground sampling efforts by conducting surveys on multiple species from a single sample of water, soil or insects. Our experts can even work with you to design surveys that fit the exact requirements of your project.”
