Mineral Exploration Research & Geophysics

The implementation of step-change research in the area of exploration (new deposits, expanded mines, mineral resource studies) and geophysics, both on surface and in underground exploration, is strategically important to mining sustainability.

Our industry-driven research focuses on:

advancing knowledge of the Sudbury Igneous Complex, specifically within the footwall and offset geologic environments, where ore bodies can be valued at $1000/t, or greater;

identifying theoretical and practical solutions to issues related to: structure; geochronology; metamorphism/anatexis; and fluid transport, within the Sudbury Basin footwall optimizing future exploration success for high value Ni-Cu-PGM (Precious Group Metals) mineral deposits; and

developing new or improved geophysical detection techniques to optimize the chances of future exploration success.
