Smart Exploration is hitting the road running!

Smart Exploration Solutions are presented during Canadian Exploitation Tour between 27 February – 4 March 2020

Smart Exploration is now ready to introduce its prototypes and methodologies 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.

EAGE is a proud partner in the Smart Exploration Project, 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

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

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

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.

Smart Exploration has developed six methodologies and five prototypes throughout the project lifetime, meaning a complete package of solutions for deep mineral exploration is available at one address. More information on these developments is available on:
