CYRIL CHELLE-MICHOU, RENOWNED PROFESSOR OF MINERAL RESOURCE SYSTEMS IN ZURICH, TO PARTICIPATE IN PROEXPLO 2023

 
 

The 13th International Congress of Prospectors and Explorers - proEXPLO 2023 will have as special guest speaker Cyril Chelle-Michou, French scientist and Assistant Professor of Mineral Resource Systems at the Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology, Department of Earth Sciences, since December 2018.

He obtained a double degree in Geological Engineering from the Ecole Nationale de Geologie de Nancy (ENSG), France, and a Master's degree in Earth Sciences from Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden, in 2008.

From 2014 to 2018, he was a postdoctoral researcher successively at the University of Geneva, Jean Monnet University (Saint-Etienne, France) and the University of Bristol (UK).

Cyril Chelle-Michou's research focuses on the study of mineral resources. He adopts an interdisciplinary approach in which methods, data and concepts spanning a wide range of fields (economic geology, geochronology, petrology, geochemistry, tectonics and numerical modeling) are interconnected to unravel the processes that have shaped our planet and created nature, resources on which our society depends.

His approach considers crust-wide scale mineral resource systems within which a variety of geological processes may have converged to form small-scale concentrations of metals.

The main research objectives of his group are to: identify and quantify the relative importance of various geological processes in controlling the size of mineral deposits and the number of mineral belts, quantify magmatic-hydrothermal flows in dynamically (temporally and spatially) evolving systems, develop new exploration methods and decision-making tools to help identify mineralization with the greatest potential as early as possible, and develop high-precision geochronological methods.

PERU RANKS 7TH IN THE WORLD RANKING FOR MINING EXPLORATION INVESTMENT

 

Peru remains one of the preferred destinations for mining exploration, ranking 7th in the world ranking for investment in this area. So explained Alvaro Fernandez-Baca, member of the Organizing Committee of proEXPLO 2023 and Vice President of Exploration at TINKA RESOURCES, during the conference organized by the Peru-Canada Chamber of Commerce (PCCC) in Toronto, Canada

"Greenfield Exploration in Peru: Reality and Opportunities" was the name of the conference where Fernández-Baca spoke about the favorable conditions of our country as an investment destination.

He pointed out, for example, that in 2021, US$ 441 million was invested in Peru for mining exploration, which represents 3.9% of the global investment that amounted to US$ 11.2 billion.
Likewise, he highlighted the advance in exploration investment registered between January and March of this year, which amounted to US$ 73 million, according to the Ministry of Energy and Mines; and in total, mining investment in the same period amounted to more than US$ 1 billion.

However, Fernandez-Baca said that the number of Greenfield projects currently being explored (not only waiting for permits) is insufficient. The Peruvian exploration portfolio has a total of 63 projects, but much more of the country's potential could be exploited.

Therefore, he highlighted the advantages to develop more mining exploration in Peru, such as the great geological potential, the competitive mining grade, the highly qualified mining services industry, and a long mining tradition that today is evidenced by successful projects that have a significant impact on the quality of life of the population.

It should also be noted that it is currently the second largest copper producer in the world and is among the top four producers of silver, lead, zinc and tin.

proEXPLO 2023

On the other hand, during the conference, the 13th International Congress of Prospectors and Explorers - proEXPLO 2023 was presented by the president of its Organizing Committee, Sebastián Benavides.

Benavides invited professionals in the sector, as well as mining concession holders, to present their projects with a technical basis so that they can be exhibited during the congress, which will be held from May 8 to 10, 2023 in the city of Lima, Peru, under the slogan "Discovering the mining of the future".

PRESIDENT OF PROEXPLO: PERU IS STILL A GREAT INVESTMENT DESTINATION FOR MINERAL EXPLORATION

 

 

  • Lima, June 13, 2022

PRESIDENT OF PROEXPLO: PERU IS STILL A GREAT INVESTMENT DESTINATION FOR MINERAL EXPLORATION

 
 

Eng. Sebastián Benavides is the president of the 13th International Congress of Prospectors and Explorers, proEXPLO 2023, and will be present at PDAC 2022, the most important mining convention in the world, where he will promote Peru as the main destination for investment in the discovery of its vast and hidden geological wealth. In this interview, he also analyzes the outlook for existing mining projects and new ones on the way, as well as his perspective for lithium.

Why are you attending PDAC and what activities do you plan to develop in this major global mining meeting?

PDAC is a great opportunity to promote mining and mineral exploration in Peru. Therefore, we will be present at different events throughout the convention, including those organized by the Peruvian Canadian Chamber of Commerce, among others. Our mission is to promote mining exploration in Peru, seeking to generate investment bridges in exploration projects, as well as to promote the ProExplo 2023 conference.

What is the message or reflection that you intend to spread as president of proEXPLO at this outstanding mining event?

The message we would like to promote is that Peru continues to be a great investment destination for long-term mineral exploration. While it is true that we are experiencing uncertain times at a political level, we are still a country with a lot of undiscovered mining potential and with many long-term opportunities. We need to lead by example and be leaders in an increasingly responsible, inclusive and sustainable mineral exploration industry.

Investments in mineral exploration continue to grow, but there are no new contracts in this area signed by the State this year, so how can we remedy this situation?

I believe that this reflects the lack of confidence and support being received from the current government, but the growth in investment in mining exploration shows that investors continue to believe in Peru as a long-term investment destination. Now, although mining exploration investments are growing, they are not growing at the rate we see worldwide.

What facts demonstrate the reality of this situation?

For example, in 2021, S&P Global reports that mining exploration grew 18% in Peru, but 35% globally. This means that we are losing competitiveness against countries such as Canada, Chile or Australia due to the bureaucratic barriers for mineral exploration in Peru and the challenges presented by the current political situation.

There is concern about the lack of new world-class projects under construction after Quellaveco, how could the development of the current portfolio be accelerated?

There are two ways to do this, which are not mutually exclusive. The first is that we must make existing projects viable. We have many deposits already discovered waiting to be built, and we must make a joint effort between the company, the state and society to reach agreements to make the projects viable in a sustainable and responsible manner, for the benefit of the population.

What is the other way?

The second way involves new discoveries, and for this we must continue to invest in exploration, and count on the support of the state to make the mineral exploration industry more competitive and agile, thus achieving discoveries that can benefit the country in a shorter period of time. This second path will be the focus of ProExplo 2023, which under the slogan "Discovering the Mining of the Future", seeks to promote mining exploration as a catalyst towards an increasingly sustainable, inclusive and responsible industry.

From your position as a geologist, what is Peru's potential for lithium deposits?

The discovery of Falchani in Puno brings a new frontier of exploration in the country: lithium in hard rock. With the increase in demand and price of lithium, an increase in resources and discoveries will be needed. With discoveries such as Falchani, the sixth largest hard rock lithium deposit in the world, Peru is showing potential to join Chile, Argentina and Bolivia as another major player in lithium production in South America.

So what is needed to boost the development of domestic lithium?

To boost its exploitation, we must promote Peru as an investment destination in this space and work with the state to motivate policies that promote this investment. It is a new frontier and it will be very competitive.

The seminar will deepen current information on VMS deposits and the tools for their exploration; the science of VMS and the possibilities of new discoveries in Peru; and the geology of the Cerro Lindo mining unit and its existing potential.

For this, we will have international specialists with extensive experience in the area of geology, who will share their knowledge, experiences and visions about mining geology in Peru and the world.

In this regard, we will be joined by:

  • Steve Piercey, his research on VMS deposits has focused on their larger scale tectonic and magmatic settings, emphasizing their volcanic, sedimentary and hydrothermal reconstruction; the sources of metals, fluids and sulfur; and their relationship to the evolution of the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere.
  • Thomas Monecke, an economic geologist specializing in the formation of base and precious metal deposits in modern and ancient volcanic arcs. He has more than 25 years of experience in geological research and mineral exploration.
  • Jean Paul Bueno, current Geology Manager of Cerro Lindo, Nexa Resources. He has geological experience in polymetallic, VMS, skarn, copper-bearing strata and low gold sulfidation epithermal deposits.

Road to proEXPLO 2023 is a virtual event that paves the way to the 13th edition of the International Congress of Prospectors and Explorers, to be held May 8-10 next year.
