TerraScan has executed a search for minerals used in batteries for electric cars over an 2400 square kilometers area. Mineral deposits have been detected and a size estimation of the reservoir has been calculated.
The objective of this survey was to identify reservoirs of certain minerals of high importance for the German industry.
The acquisition and processing was executed using our gScan processing technology using image, signal processing, lineament and geodynamic analysis.
