Smart Exploration is hitting the road running!
Smart Exploration Solutions are presented during Canadian Exploitation Tour on 27 February – 4 March 2020

Smart Exploration is now ready to introduce its prototypes and softwares into the market. In February-March 2020, the project representatives will be on a Canadian Tour presenting results and innovative solutions to potential stakeholders and end-users.
Smart Exploration Project is an ambitious project with state-of-the-art solutions funded under the EU’s Horizon2020 funding scheme. The project develops cost-effective, environmentally-friendly tools and methods for geophysical exploration in highly challenging brownfield and greenfield areas to address ever-increasing community and environmental issues, as well as reduce the return time on investments.
Since the inception of the project, the 27 partners comprising the project consortium have worked together to meet the challenging task of developing solutions for deep mineral exploration. The solutions have been tested and validated under diverse mining conditions (surface, underground, open pit, brownfield, greenfield). Even though these solutions are developed for mineral exploration purposes, they have cross- and multidisciplinary applications and can be used by other industries.

Tour Agenda
The Smart Exploration solutions meet their potential end-users in Canada through an exploitation tour. The project representatives are present at three events in Toronto and looking forward to introducing their prototypes to the market.
27 February: Toronto MERC-Smart Exploration Workshop on Novel Seismics and Electromagnetic Methods for Mineral Exploration

29 February: Toronto Special EAGE session at the KEGS 2020 PDAC Symposium

1-4 March:
Toronto PDAC 2020

Smart Exploration Solutions

Smart Exploration has developed six software (methodologies) and five prototypes
throughout the project lifetime, meaning a complete package of solutions for deep mineral
exploration is available at one address.
• 3D frequency and time-domain electromagnetic modeling
• Thin-sheet time domain modeling and IP responses
• New solutions for near-surface problems and related deeper imaging improvements
• Generation of additional data from sparse active-source data with lower
environmental impact
• Scattering/diffractivity imaging, improved resolution depth imaging
Three out of five porotypes have been validated and will launch in Canada.
• GPS-time synchronization system for denied environment such as underground mines
• Electromagnetic broadband frequency seismic source (E-Vib)
• Deep-probing time-domain electromagnetic helicopter-based system (HTEM).
Two out of five prototypes are currently in the last phase of development and will be launched
after validation.
• Slimhole modular system for mining boreholes
• UAV-Mag-EM for fast and over difficult terrains data acquisition

Several presentations will be given during the events and the three validated prototypes will
be showcased during PDAC Convention in Toronto at the EU booth.

Five representatives of the project will be in Toronto. Project Coordinator Alireza Malehmir
from Uppsala University ( and Dissemination Leader Asli Onar
from EAGE ( may be contacted to discuss collaboration possibilities and
available for one-to-one meetings.
