Exploration

Exploration is the act of searching and finding new deposits of minerals to mine.

The exploration process includes a number of phases, where each exploration step aims at increasing the geological knowledge of an area. Methods such as boulder tracing, geophysical and geochemical investigation, geological mapping and diamond drilling are used.

An exploration permit, approved by the Mining Inspectorate, Bergsstaten, is required to explore a land area.
