evidencing of soil partial leaches and biogeochemistry in mineral exploration as a collaboration of the research institutions GTK, BRGM, GEUS, VUT and VTT, and a geo-consulting company GeoPool to promote the use of surface geochemistry across Europe. UpDeep has utilized existing soil partial leach and biogeochemical data from Finland, and will acquire new datasets over known mineralizations in France and Greenland. The business feasibility and market
study will be conducted by Spinverse.
We tackle several technical aspects of surface geochemistry including efficient sampling protocols and sample media selection, production of a surface geochemical standard reference material bank, and compositional data analysis. A web based data analysis and delivery platform will be constructed to facilitate quick delivery of results and continuous interaction in data interpretation between the geochemical consultant and an exploration company. An educational component on producing learning materials and proving classes for the exploration industry should increase awareness and understanding of the suitability of surface geochemical sampling media in different environments. The general business model will be modular to suit the needs of customers with backgrounds in surface geochemical exploration.
UpDeep is a three year project (2017-2020, http://projects.gtk.fi/updeep/) funded by the European Information and Technology Raw Materials.
