Ever hear the term greenfield exploration and wonder what it refers to? Or what the difference is between greenfield and brownfield? Newcomers to the mineral exploration world may not know and may not want to ask these questions so we will be publishing a series of blogs and videos that go back to some of the basic information that drillers and helpers, new and old, should know.
Videos are a great way to share information with people who are more visual and who prefer to watch a demonstration than to read about it. This latest video in our series investigates the reasons why core drilling is done, the differences between greenfield and brownfield exploration, why one is riskier than the other and what steps need to happen before core drilling starts. The video explains who the different players are in the industry, the factors that drive exploration and how these economic factors make the industry so cyclic. It is a quick and easy way to get answers to your questions.
