The accelerating transition to clean energy is fuelling increased demand for many minerals and metals, including copper which is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity.
According to the European Copper Institute, copper plays an important role in enabling renewable energy solutions including solar, wind, tidal, hydro, biomass and geothermal.
As we wrote in our recent blog, the price of copper has been rising steadily since March 2020.
An exciting development in sedimentary-hosted mineral exploration
Similar to hydrocarbons, many mineral systems originate under specific genetic conditions. But, unlike oil and gas explorers, mining specialists rarely have global datasets at their disposal.
Could they be missing out?
Getech has developed a new workflow, based on global-scale data and risk segment mapping, to predict the location of sediment-hosted copper resources.
Using the test area of central Europe, our methodology successfully predicts the location of historical copper production sites – and identifies further areas of opportunity.
