2nd Practical Workshop on Innovative technologies in exploration and mineral detection

The second edition of the practical workshop on “Innovative technologies in exploration and mineral detection” will be held in Barcelona next 12th and 13th of December. As part of INNOLOG professional training and outreach activities, this workshop will provide attendants with an overview on the latest advances and state of the art of innovative downhole imaging and analytical techniques of interest for mineral exploration/exploitation. In this second edition the workshop will focus on the practical use of hyperspectral imaging techniques and also on most recent and new innovations.

Participants from different EIT RM projects, mining industry andservices companies professionals will present advances and future needs in this field. The workshop proved in its first edition as a good opportunity to share with industry professionals and mining companies professionals advances of interest to improve and innovate in exploration and also to stablish synergies between different EIT Raw Materials projects. On December 13th afternoon practical sessions on data acquisition and processing at the ICTJA-CSIC facilities (Downhole andGeophysical Logging Lab), including demos measurements in the Almera-1 and Almera-2 and Almera-3 boreholes.

Practical workshop on Innovative technologies in exploration and mineral detection

A practical workshop on innovative technologies in exploration and mineral detection was held in Barcelona in December 2017 (13th-14th). The workshop provided a view of last advances and state of the art of imaging techniques being used in mineral exploration. This first edition was mainly focused on hyperspectral imaging techniques but also other innovative techniques were presented like microwave technologies, x-ray and laser-based techniques.
