A Future with a Smaller Footprint. Veracio

Veracio is proud to introduce our whitepaper, "Fulfilling the Need for Critical Minerals: Resource Definition and Mine Design Reimagined," a pioneering exploration into the escalating demand for critical minerals driven by the global shift towards green technologies and a decarbonized economy.

This document not only identifies the challenges and inefficiencies plaguing current mining operations but also showcases innovative solutions that could redefine the future of mining for critical minerals such as cobalt, copper, lithium, and nickel.

Our whitepaper outlines a comprehensive approach towards reimagining resource definition and mine design, emphasizing the urgent need for the mining industry to adopt new levels of efficiency and technological advancements. Through in-depth analysis and case studies, we highlight how modern technologies, including AI and machine learning, can revolutionize the discovery, assessment, and extraction of critical minerals, ensuring the mining sector can meet the burgeoning demands of the green transition effectively.

The whitepaper has been written to address the mounting needs for new approaches to resource defintion and mine design in order to achieve a greater supply of the minerals we need at the quantity we need it:

  • Growing Demand for Critical Minerals: Highlighting the increased need for minerals essential for green technology and the energy transition.
  • Challenges in Supply: Identifying obstacles in sourcing these minerals, including geopolitical, environmental, and technological issues.
  • Innovative Solutions for Resource Definition: Showcasing how advanced technologies can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of mineral exploration and extraction.
  • Role of AI and Machine Learning: Discussing the impact of AI in revolutionizing the discovery and assessment of mineral deposits.
  • Sustainability and Environmental Considerations: Emphasizing the importance of sustainable practices in mining operations to minimize environmental impact.
  • Future Outlook: Offering insights into the future of mining for critical minerals and the strategic approaches needed to ensure a sustainable supply chain.

Veracio invites stakeholders, industry professionals, and anyone keen on the sustainable future of mining to delve into our whitepaper. Discover how we're tackling the critical mineral supply challenge head-on, through innovative strategies and technologies designed to expedite the mining process, reduce environmental impact, and pave the way for a more sustainable and efficient mining industry.

We believe more is less.

And when you know more, you work better, you search less and waste less. This is Veracio’s latest news, events and though leadership from across the globe.

Sample Scanning
TruScan™ offers explorers and mine geologists non-destructive and accurate elemental data of chips and core, right there in the field. Capable of scanning 80 to 100m (200 to 300 ft) of core per 12-hour shift (depending on required data density) and many more meters (feet) per shift on RC chips, a single unit can potentially scan the core from multiple drill rigs, legacy core, or a combination of both.
