About Exploration ‘17

Over the last decade, geoscientists have been faced with increasingly complex and deeper mining environments. Exploration ’17 provides an exciting opportunity to showcase the integration of Geology, Geophysics, Geochemistry and Remote Sensing, critical to improving the utility of data acquisition, processing, interpretation and targeting. We are developing new understanding and knowledge through greater cooperation between the geoscience disciplines. Exploration ‘17 will present the achievements and ongoing progress of the geosciences over the last ten years that meet The Challenge of Discovery.

MISSION

Exploration ’17 provides a forum to focus on the DMEC vision that the successful application of geosciences for mineral exploration will most likely occur when the geoscience disciplines are meaningfully integrated into exploration programs, and that this will occur when geoscientists are collaborating on the challenge of discovery.
