LAUNCH EVENT: Sustainable Discovery and Supply Lighthouse

Date: 28 – 29 October 2019

Venue: Levi Hotel Spa, Kokouskeidas

We would like to invite you to the EIT RawMaterials Sustainable Discovery and Supply Lighthouse launch event. This event ahead of the FEM 2019 conference will be a great opportunity to attend inspiring presentations and to connect and interact with experts that drive innovation in the European exploration and mining sector.

The Sustainable Discovery and Supply Lighthouse will promote the benefits of a strong minerals and materials sector in the modern society and the transition towards the green and circular economy. The Lighthouse aims to facilitate innovative solutions for the sourcing and processing of strategic mineral resources in a sustainable and safe way and with a Social License to Operate.

The two-day seminar program includes:

  • keynote speeches by leaders from industry, government and academia
  • engaging pitch & match session
  • two thematic breakout sessions:
  • Exploration and Digitalisation
  • Sustainable Mining and Resource Efficiency

Geoscientist with interest in mineral exploration are invited to a workshop with the theme: Surface geochemistry in exploration

Date: 29 October 2019 at 9:00 – 14:00
Venue: Break Sokos Hotel Levi

Items covered during the workshop

  • Metal uptake in plants
  • How to sample plants to identify deep buried ores
  • Exogenic geochemical signals and their dispersions
  • Planning a survey, selecting sample media and assay/extraction methods
  • Introduction to the UpDeep WebTool
  • Implementation of QAQC
  • Interpretation of results

The workshop is arranged by the UpDeep project, an EIT RawMaterial funded project. The aim with this workshop is to increase the knowledge about geochemical processes and how they can be used in an efficient way in exploration. The focus is on sampling top soils and plant tissue. Speakers during the workshop will be scientists from the project consortium.

Assessment of undiscovered mineral resources – the MAP method: theory and examples

Date: 1 November 2019 at 9:00 – 17:00
Venue: Hotel Levi Panorama, Restaurant Gold Digger, (7th floor)

Information of remaining, although yet unknown, mineral resources is becoming increasingly important for decision-making at country and regional level. Exploration companies need good quantitative information of the expected endowment in the area selection phase.

This one-day short course describes the quantitative assessment method and software developed in the EIT RawMaterials co-funded project “Mineral Resource Assessment Platform (MAP)”. The course also gives an overview of methods used in the assessment of undiscovered mineral endowment, including the three-part method, play analysis, and mineral potential mapping. Presentations on various aspects of an assessment are given, including grade-tonnage model construction and evaluation, delineation of permissive areas where deposits can exist, estimation of the number of undiscovered deposits, and carrying out economic screening of assessment results. Several examples of assessments and results from various locations are also presented.

The presentations are given by experts of MAP project partners (Geological Survey of Finland, Geological Survey of Sweden, Geological Survey of Norway, Iceland GeoSurvey, Oulu Mining School, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Beak Consultants GmbH) and of U.S. Geological Survey. For full details and registration, please check the event website at http://www.map-eitrawmaterials.eu/levi2019/
