Passive seismic imaging for mineral exploration: the Marathon PGE-Cu deposit, Ontario, Canada

In the PACIFIC project, Sisprobe did a passive seismic survey of the Marathon PGE-Cu deposit, Ontario, Canada. Seismic velocity models help to define the geometry of the gabbroic intrusions that host the mineralisation and represent an economical and environmentally friendly exploration technique. Watch the video below !

The PACIFIC project has received funding through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 776622. The Marathon Palladium Project is developed by Generation PGM Inc. www.genmining.com

The environmental impact of PACIFIC: Report 1

PACIFIC develops mineral exploration techniques that have a relatively low impact on the environment. This document is an assessment of this impact, but also of the environmental footprint of all activities related to the project. PACIFIC environmental footprint is still significant because of plane travels linked to transnational meetings. Learn more about it by reading the following document!
