The ERA-MIN 3, FUTURE project will shape high-tech mineral exploration solutions through a focused partnership between Europe and South Africa.
NIO, in close collaboration with Uppsala University, Sercel, university of mind, Geological Survey of SwedenPolitecnico di Torino, Deep South Gold Mine, University of Vende through the support of national funding agencies through an ERA-NET co-fund on raw materials (ERA-MIN), will collaborate, once again, in a technology development project aimed at developing solutions for sustainable mining exploration, high-tech and innovative. The work will use fiber optic sensing technologies, MEMS-based seismic nodes, and UAV-based magnetic and electromagnetic surveys for high-definition target generations and subsurface imaging.
Field development work will take place at NIO mine sites in Sweden and the Gold Field deep mine site at South Africawhere deep mining requires a better understanding of potential resources at depth and their host rock structures.
Several field surveys are planned, along with new prototype equipment and technical solutions to make these types of surveys cost-effective in hard rock environments. The project will also include a significant training and education component, as well as workshops and presentations as the project progresses.
The project is expected to start in April 2022 and will last 48 months.

Nordic Iron Ore Group is a mining company with the ambition to relaunch and develop the iron ore production of Ludvika Mines in Blötberget and Håksberg. The Company also intends to expand its mineral resources and turn them into ore reserves, primarily through exploration and further study of the Väsman Connection Field. The Company has all the necessary permits for the Blötberget mine and will be able to produce very high quality iron ore.
