UNEXMIN present in EIT Raw Materials Event on Drones, exploration and mining

The UNEXMIN project will be present during one of the following EIT Raw Materials events, entitled: “Brokerage event and Workshop on Drones, Autonomous Systems for Exploration and Mining“. The event will be held in Espoo, home of the Geological Survey of Finland, during the 14th and 15th of September. It aims to gather researchers, small and large companies and investors in the multidisciplinary of unmanned vehicles.

The topics from this event will work around: (1) Drones, robotics, automation, (2) advanced materials, sensors, energy storage, (3) digital platforms and solutions and (4) safety, regulations and permits. The defined topics will focus on applications in open pit and underground mining and geological mapping, two very important applications for geological purposes.

It is a great pleasure for the UNEXMIN project to be present in this EIT Raw Materials event, as the topics being discussed are the ones the consortium has been working on for quite some time now: drones, autonomy, mapping, exploration and mining. We hope that UNEXMIN can have a positive contribution and impact in the audience and  learn from others’ own experiences. Discussions will surely push the topic of unnamed vehicles used in benefit of mining even further.
