METS Tech Talk: What Lies Beneath – The Latest in Exploration

Austmine’s METS Tech Talks Webinar Series will put the spotlight on the latest innovations and game-changing solutions set to transform the mining industry as we know it.

Our first session will focus on ‘What Lies Beneath – The Latest in Exploration.’

With the discovery of tier-1 assets becoming more difficult, exploration has become a key area of focus for technology. Mining companies are faced with the challenge of searching deeper and wider to find the next wave of projects and meet the growing global demand for minerals.

This webinar will feature six METS companies who will discuss their new solutions and emerging innovations that will be critical in identifying what’s under the surface and contributing to a sustainable pipeline of projects for mining’s future.


Direct Integration for More Streamlined Field Data Capture
Steve Mundell, Director of Product, acQuire


acQuire has developed a new mobile data capture app with full integration to its central geological database, GIM Suite, ensuring field data is synchronised seamlessly and efficiently and validated from the point of capture. We showcase how our new mobile technology streamlines the data collection process.

Field Analytical Services and Testing (FAST)
John Woods, Global New Technology Manager, SGS Australia


During exploration, resource definition and production, getting analytical data quickly is vital for making accurate and timely decisions. SGS FAST solutions utilises the latest technological developments to provide this service. This brief presentation talks about the new technological approaches available.

Drilling More Targets - New Technologies in Drilling Optimisation
Michelle Carey, General Manager Product Management, IMDEX


We all know that to make more discoveries you need to drill more holes. They key to that is reducing the cost of drilling so you can get more metres for the same budget.

Also critical is gathering sensor information to inform real time decision so that metres aren’t wasted. Find out what's new in this space.

Drilling and Exploration Tools and Improvements your Company Should be Part of
Andrew Bailey, CEO, Mineral Exploration Cooperative Research Centre


Improved methods of drilling and a new type of drill rig using a Coiled Tube in place of drill rods are currently being developed, together with seismic, downhole sensing and data processing techniques. All Exploration, Mining and METS company can benefit from these projects.

Exploring with the Crowd
Holly Bridgwater, Principal Industry Engagement, Unearthed


Both mining companies and governments are applying a crowdsourcing approach to mineral exploration as an attempt to accelerate discovery rates. This talk explores the methodology, outcomes and learnings to date, and broader impacts for the exploration industry.

PhotonAssay: Rapid Analysis of Gold and Other Metals
Dr James Tickner, CTO and Co-Founder, Chrysos Corporation

PhotonAssay offers a rapid, accurate and non-destructive alternative to traditional chemical analysis methods. We discuss how the technology can support exploration for gold, silver and copper.
