Abstract Summary

Non-invasive exploration techniques can be defined as energy efficient, low-impact technologies. They assist in the detection and mapping of mineral deposits and improve exploration targeting with minimal environmental impact, while demonstrating that industry cares about reducing disturbance to the communities and environment in which they operate

Full Abstract

There is a growing demand for mineral resources worldwide, and yet industry is facing increasing obstacles in obtaining public acceptance for new exploration and mining projects. Numerous recent citizen protests highlight the bad public perception of mining projects and increase the reluctance of investors to finance explorations. These difficulties will certainly increase as sensitive areas such as the Arctic or deep-sea environments are now considered. We argue that a paradigm shift is needed to improve the reputation of the industry and increase the acceptance of exploration and mining. Respect and inclusion of host communities should be at the forefront at the earliest stages of exploration. Non-invasive exploration techniques can be defined as energy efficient, low-impact technologies. They assist in the detection and mapping of mineral deposits and improve exploration targeting with minimal environmental impact, while demonstrating that industry cares about reducing disturbance to the communities and environment in which they operate. Until recently, these criteria have generally not figured significantly in mineral exploration design and planning in Europe. However, it is increasingly understood that non-invasive technologies can help to maintain the social licence to operate and consequently lower the investment risk of exploration. Continued...
