Mineral resources are used in larger quantities than ever before in history, and are the basis of our modern society. Exploration is the first step in the mineral resources cycle. Most of the giant deposits at shallow depths have been already explored and mined out and the industry is moving towards deeper and more complex mineral systems, which brings significant exploration challenges.
The exploration sector needs time-saving, cost-effective, and, particularly in Europe, environmentally friendly and socially acceptable techniques to ensure sustainable access to mineral resources. This workshop will bring in experts in mineral exploration from a broad range of topics (e.g. geophysics, remote sensing, geology, modelling) and will be divided in three sessions:
