Minerals exploration is low impact and temporary. Exploration has a small land use footprint, and any land disturbed must be rehabilitated by the explorer. Explorers and landowners can work together to ensure exploration has minimal impact on farming operations.
The video to the right outlines minerals exploration techniques including desktop research to drilling and core analysis explained by staff from exploration companies.
The minerals industry understands that landowners and communities want to learn more about minerals exploration, how explorers and communities work together and the environmentally responsible approach taken by explorers.
