CSIRO, Chinese Geological Survey Sign Technology Accord
This new collaborative relationship, according to CSIRO, will assist Australian geological technologies entering or planning to enter the Chinese market. It will also help further secure China as Australia’s leading resource partner.
Joint projects following the signing of the MoU will initially focus on spectral sensing for minerals exploration and environmental monitoring. As the relationship develops, collaborative work will expand to include additional exploration technologies including geophysical and geochemical methods and mineral systems targeting.
By developing a formal relationship with CGS, CSIRO said it is also fostering a partnership which may allow it to access data acquired by a Chinese hyperspectral satellite expected to be launched in the near future.
