These tools developed within GoldenEye will be demonstrated in five field trials in Germany, Bulgaria, Romania, Kosovo and Finland, creating a compelling value proposition for implementation across the mining industry value chain.
The Kerttu Saalasti Institute and its multidisciplinary Regional Excellence (REx) research team will host, facilitate, and support the design of underground-, open pit-, tailing pond-, and environment-related pilots and tests at the Pyhäsalmi mine. The REx research team also contributes to the evaluation and scientific reporting of tested techniques and results.
The project has a duration of three years and an EC funding of 8.36 M€. The consortium includes a large industrial partner, seven SMEs, four academic/research centers and four end-users, supported by a strong advisory board of experts in geosciences. The project is coordinated by the Finnish VTT.
