(Aerogeofísica Para la Exploración de Minerales Requeridos Para la Transición Energética) Airborne Geophysics applied to Energy Transition Mineral Exploration

22 August 2023 | 11:00 a.m. Central Time

The energy transition generates a new demand for elements that will provide raw materials for batteries and other green energy supplies.  Geophysical exploration methods will be essential in the newest findings and reinterpreting previous datasets. In this case, it is necessary to understand the geological context of the different deposit types and their physical properties.  Some deposits are part of the bottom part of extinct volcanoes, while others are found in the brines of high mountains. Airborne geophysics methods such as electromagnetic methods (time and frequency domain) or a combination set of magnetic and radiometric surveys could support the base for future discoveries.

This webinar will be presented in Spanish and forms part of the LARAC webinar series.
