Successful minerals exploration can be considered a process that relies on a stream of new technology as part of the constant improvement required to offset the effects of things like: terrain maturity, challengingtargets, and cost effectiveness.

Most new technology comes into the exploration environment without a user manual, defined methodology, or a way to effectively integrate the new technology into the exploration process. The industry typically has to rely on its own empirically developed “best practice”, often obtained through the efforts of people who lack the specific knowledge of the new technology.

Early experiences with new technology can often be deemed “failures”. These failures are more likely attributable to a lack of understanding as to how technology should be applied.

This DMEC-PDAC seminar will examine a number of examples where, after initial “failure” of a technique, users were able to adapt and learn to arrive at a successful outcome.
