Smart Exploration: Innovative ways of exploring for the raw materials in the EU
Malhemir, A., Holmes, P., Gisselø, P., Socco, L.V., Carvalho, J., Mardsen, P., Verboon, A.O., Loska, M.
Europe has a favourable geology for a wide variety of commodities necessary for improving our modern life sustainably and environmentally friendly. The Smart Exploration initiative answered one of the seven societal challenges offered by the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials on new solutions for sustainable production of raw materials – new sensitive exploration technologies.
Smart Exploration: from legacy data to state-of-the-art data acquisition and imaging
Malehmir, A., Donoso, G., Markovic, M., Maries, G., Dynesius, L., Brodic, B.,Pacheco, N., Marsden, P., Bäckström, E., Penney M., and Araujo, V.
During the last decade, and possibly in years to come, mineral exploration geophysics has strongly pushed itself towards developing new instruments and hardware solutions capable of addressing the ever challenging near-mine and brownfield exploration issues. New data will be acquired but higher noise levels and restricted access due to mining activities and infrastructure increase the challenge of acquiring data of sufficient quality to answer key geologic questions and define additional resources.
