PUBLICATIONS

Our publications address scientific knowledge about the geology of our test sites, latest technical and methodological innovations for mineral exploration, as well as research results about the importance of practices used to assess social impacts and interact with local communities.

Download articles about the formation of ore deposits, new machine learning tools to detect hidden ore bodies, novel geophysical measurement systems with drones, latest improvements in processing and analysing of satellite remote sensing and portable devices data, and innovative approaches for geochemical analyses e.g. in glaciated terrain. Look at the results of interviews with local stakeholders as well as exploration companies, and read our Research Brief on the Social License to Explore (SLE) concept.
