Getech, the net zero technology provider and data-led energy asset developer, has won over £100,000-worth of new contracts to support the exploration of minerals critical to the delivery of the energy transition.
In Australia, Getech is working with an international mining company to assess the potential for sedimentary copper accumulations, and another new project in South America involves Getech utilising gravity and magnetic data expertise to grade areas for potential iron oxide-copper-gold mineralisation.
Getech has invested to expand the application of products originally developed as petroleum solutions, positioning them as 'essential tools' in locating and developing new critical mineral deposits.
Using its proprietary data and workflows, the company can identify the specific factors responsible for the location and economic concentration of energy and mineral resources.
This information is delivered and managed through Getech’s platforms, such as Globe (pictured), which contain gravity and magnet datasets and earth systems knowledge. Its Globe product will be used in North America to carry out genetic analysis of critical minerals.
Getech CEO Dr Jonathan Copus said: "These projects demonstrate the versatility of our foundation products and solutions, and their adaptability in locating and de-risking a wide range of commodities across geographies."
Against the current complex geopolitical backdrop, Getech’s ability to locate and define new geographically diverse sources of critical minerals are essential to delivering a secure and sustainable energy transition.
These high-demand minerals are used in electricity and low carbon infrastructure from electric vehicles, batteries and power networks to the electronics used in wind turbines and solar cells.
Globe is a GIS knowledge-base that helps clients better predict the location of natural resources, with an impressive database documenting the evolution of geology and structures for the last 400mn years.
