Exploration and Mining in Barcelona,
2016, the Second Conference invites
researchers from academia, industry,
and government organizations to share
the recent advances, trending topics
and novel geophysical methods in
mineral prospecting and mining.
Considering the complex challenges of modern-day exploration, the main focus of the Second Conference will be on discussing the key technical and scientific advances that will improve exploration success and lead to discovery and successful development of mineral deposits. We encourage contributions from all over the world, especially those with a European focus and application. Emphasis will be placed on emerging geophysical techniques for mineral exploration, novel interpretation schemes and challenging case studies.
The aim of the conference is to promote international cooperation on geophysical methods that lead to sustained mineral exploration and development."
