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