With the evolution of a new technology trend based on the development of UNEXMIN project, a great number of positive social and economic changes will affect European countries in the near future.
Amongst the significant impacts that will result from this project, the most important are:
- Pushing the European Union to the forefront in sustainable minerals surveying and exploration technologies
- Increasing Europe’s capacity to re-evaluate its abandoned mines for their mineral potential, with reduced exploration costs and increased investment security for any future mining operations
- Help to document and safeguard Europe’s unique mining heritage
The UNEXMIN consortium is also hoping for a great impact in areas such as robotics, geology, and raw materials, as these are essential fields of study in this project, and pushing them forward towards new developments and discoveries will benefit all.
