Passive Seismic has always been a potentially prominent exploration tool. In this context, a processing workflow, incorporating the output of different Passive Seismic methodologies, has been developed. This workflow consists of exploiting three different types of Passive Seismic signal (seismic noise, local earthquakes and teleseismic events) extracted form the same Passive Seismic dataset. This procedure has been applied on data acquired in the context of the OROSACQ project, a research project that has been launched early 2017 and consisted of a 6-month Passive Seismic acquisition on a test site in France, near the Pyrenees mountains. The results were very promising, as this technique permitted the maximization of the acquired information.
