Scantherma was lucky enough to attend Mines and Money conference held in Hong Kong between the 18th and 22nd of March.
The team was represented by Amir, Neil and Shervin, bringing with it expertise ranging from remote sensing for mineral exploration as well as 3D visualisation and imaging.
Mines and Money is Asia’s premier mining event bringing together a wide field of mining companies, investors, as well service providers. The event this year had a strong showing from companies with projects in South East Asia, Australia and in particular Mongolia.
Mongolian geological datasets
Scantherma was able to demonstrate its suite of mineral exploration datasets for Mongolia, including a nation-wide Landsat mosaic processed specifically for geological mapping, as well as a Radar mosaic focusing on structural geology such as faults.
The products were exceptionally well received with many Mongolian based companies requiring the datasets off-the-shelf for current exploration projects.
Iron Ore in Equatorial Africa
Iron ore is currently a hot commodity in Equatorial Africa and this was clearly seen at Mines and Money 2013. Given the lack of niche exploration datasets being available on archive, Scantherma was lucky enough to speak to several board members of mining companies looking for iron ore in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Mali and Ivory Coast. Unanimously, the single dataset most required was high resolution DEMs which would be used for resource estimation as well as transport planning.
At Scantherma, we achieve this by using a combination of stereo capable satellite imagery or Radargrammetry to produce DEMs of between 2m to 10m pixel resolution, respectively.
