In mining exploration, it is now assumed that the deposits outcropping become increasingly scarce and future discoveries are becoming increasingly complex and can only be made by hidden deposits. This reality, coupled with the need to economically optimize the various phases of exploration has led to the use of indirect methods. So ONHYM launched hyperspectral airborne and geochemical exploration, geophysical airborne which helped to identify targets for several mining research campaigns.
During 2005-2019 a strategic exploration program was carried out. It includes:
