Large, high grade, shallow ore bodies in politically stable jurisdictions are becoming harder and harder to discover.  Exploration technologies have not changed markedly for 30 years.  The mining sector has a huge unmet need for a step change in exploration science.

Issues

  • Geological/geochemical/biogeochemical discovery
  • Deep deposit discovery
  • Sensors
  • In situ (continuous) assay sampling
  • Exploration drilling technologies
  • Modes for ore body formation
