Test Trials

EXPLORATION IN GERMANY

  • The Erzgebirge district
  • Mineralogy concealed granite cupola
  • Target for exploration are skarn-hosted Sn mineralization
  • The exact location of drilling targets
    could not yet be identified so far
    because of missing high-resolution data

AIM: mineralogical knowledge

  • 3D mineralogical mapping
  • Integration of high-resolution UAV data
    with satellite data to help to identify
    drilling targets

EXPLORATION IN BULGARIA

The Panagyurishte ore district

  • Target for exploration are porphyrycopper
    and epithermal gold occurrences
  • The target mapping has lacked high resolution data to identify and/or prove the geometry of the alteration mineral assemblages and ore controlling

AIM: mineralogical knowledge
• IR and Multispectral UAV data will be
produced together with GIS based
maps of alteration mineral
assemblages for each target

OPEN PIT EXTRACTION IN ROMANIA

  • The Roşia Poieni district
  • Extraction of the copper ore
  • Target for extraction: mineralization of low
    copper content delimited by the isolation of 0.1% Cu content
  • The exact location of Cu deposit has not been found so far due to expensive drillings

AIM: mineralogical knowledge

  • The integration of satellite data and drone
    or proximity data to improve mineral predictions.

UNDERGROUND EXTRACTION IN FINLAND

  • Pyhäsalmi deposit
  • Mineralogy copper zinc sulphide
  • One of the deepest underground mines in Europe
  • At the end of mine life cycle


AIM: safety for mine re-use

  • Integration of high resolution UAV data with satellite data to monitor slope integrity , both open pits and tailing ponds
  • The GNSS geolocation to ensure the re-user safety

POST CLOSURE IN KOSOVO

  • The Trepča Mines Complex
  • 8 tailings ponds owned by the government of Kosovo
  • Target: secondary raw material extraction in the tailing areas
  • Heavy legacy of toxic waste

AIM: Safety and environmental monitoring

  • Monitor the stability of the tailings and evaluate the degree of Acid Mine Drainage

AIM: Mineralogical knowledge

  • Evaluate the secondary extraction potential of tailings
