PACIFIC PROJECT STRUCTURE

Workplan structure

WP1 - Compiling background information

The aim of WP1 is to compile the most up-to-date background information that is required for the acquisition, processing and interpretation of passive seismic data.

WP2 - Development of codes

This WP’s objective is to develop the tools needed to implement new techniques – and to pilot test the performance of passive body-wave reflection method.

WP3 - Pilot test of the passive reflection seismic technique at the SIBSTIL Marathon deposit

The aim of this WP is to deploy the receiver array at the Stillwater-Marathon deposit and to extract, then process the passive reflection data.

WP4 - Pilot test of the passive reflection seismic technique at the Kallak FE deposit

This WP’s objective is to test the second innovative application of the seismic technology: the simultaneous use of surface and vertical receiver arrays in passive seismic exploration.

WP5 - Environment and safety risk assessment

The aims of the WP are to ensure PACIFIC does no harm, to risk assess PACIFIC from both environmentally and safety perspective, to mitigate the risks identified, to ensure regulatory compliance, to establish protocols for safe working, inspections, incident reporting investigation and mitigation, and to establish systems for the reporting, recording, monitoring and auditing of all measures taken.

WP6 - Social acceptance & perception of risk for mining activities

The aim of this WP is to design and conduct experimental tests of the public’s understanding, perception of risk, and acceptability of risk from mining-related activities.

WP7 - Clustering with other projects

WP7 will establish collaborations with relevant projects in the field funded by Horizon 2020.

WP8 - Dissemination, training, innovation, management and exploitation

This WP aims at spreading the project’s results beyond the consortium to all main stakeholders including: industry, policy-makers, public and European authorities, the EIP Raw materials, the EC H2020 programme, the scientific community and the citizens. This WP also includes preparation of the exploitation of the project’s results, the management of PACIFIC innovation and intellectual property, and the promotion of passive seismic methods for mineral exploration.

WP9 - Project management

This WP aims at establishing and maintaining the appropriate management infrastructure, governance, policies and management procedures for PACIFIC to ensure a successful execution of the project.
