The DESMEX Project aims to develop semi-airborne systems for mineral exploration down to depths of about 1 km. The main system components have been tested and improved over last two years. After several preliminary test surveys, the main experiment was conducted in October 2017. Different layouts for the ground based survey set up were tested and evaluated. Large parts of the acquired data have been processed and first results are ready for display.

Parallel to these works, petrographic studies have been performed in order to be able to complement the geophysical and geological data needed for a combined 3D-model of the main DESMEX survey region.
