Utilization of Remotely Sensed Data for Reconnaissance-Level Mineral Exploration in Canada’s North
Application Deadline: 24 May 2013
LOOKNorth is soliciting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) based in Canada that have demonstrated expertise in the use of remote sensing for mineral exploration applications, particularly in the context of Canada’s North.
LOOKNorth, in cooperation with HTX Minerals (a Canadian mineral exploration company with interests in Nunavut) is seeking the support of a company with expertise in geological remote sensing to undertake an analysis of remotely sensed data in support of reconnaissance-level mineral exploration.
The use of remotely sensed data for mineral exploration purposes is an established practice. However, its utility and methodology within smaller exploration companies is not well documented – either in terms of the benefits of various data sources or in terms of workflows for companies that do not have in-house RS expertise expertise.
In accordance with LOOKNorth objectives, this expression of interest seeks to identify qualified and interested parties to undertake the work described below. Based on responses, LOOKNorth and HTX Minerals will select a company to work with. A final project plan (including scope, timing and cost) will be developed in collaboration among the three parties.
