Output of
the project

NEXT will develop new geomodels and novel sensitive exploration technologies which together are fast, cost-effective, environmentally safe and potentially socially accepted.

The project is built on three pillars of technological advances: (1) Mineral systems modeling, (2) exploration methods and approaches as well as (3) data processing and data integration tools. NEXT will combine the knowledge derived from the geological mineral systems research with the new advanced exploration techniques. The development of data analysis techniques is a crucial step in getting most out of the vast exploration data with lower costs and better accuracy. With these principles in mind, NEXT is taking steps toward more efficient and economically and environmentally sustainable mineral exploration. This will eventually lead into better success rate in exploration and new discoveries, which is important for the raw materials supply for European industrial development now and in the future.
