SMART EXPLORATION - Sustainable mineral resources by utilizing new Exploration technologies

01/07/2019 – 31/12/2021

The project aim developing new technologies and methods (seismic, electromagnetic and potential-field methods) to explore near-mine environments, new exploration targets and the potencial of new developments for greenfield in less developped European exploration sites. Thus to maximize the value of existing data and lead to find new deposits and re-assessign the mineral potential for EU.
