Geophysical Response in Lithium-Brine Monitoring, New Exploration Paradigms and Sustainable Green Lithium

20 May 20247:00 AM (CDT) The energy transition drives the energy sector to renewable energy and electrification, being the critical minerals key players in the industrial development map. They comprise rare earth elements and 35 other elements including lithium that holds the ~65% of its world reserves in the so-called lithium triangle located in Argentina-Bolivia-Chile. The low electrical resistivities, variations in salt concentrations, weak acoustic impedances contrasts, and dynamics of the hydrogeological system, makes brine

Drone-Based Magnetic and Electromagnetic Measurements in Sweden: A Few Case Studies

13 September 20237:00 AM–8:00 AM (CST) In the frame of an EU-funded project, Smart Exploration, two data acquisition systems have been developed by the Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU and Uppsala University (UU) to measure the total magnetic field and electromagnetic (EM) signals from distant radio transmitters in the frequency range 10-350 kHz on-board an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The EM system is composed of a data logger and a three-component induction coil sensor, mounted
