Ideon Technologies’ VP, Talent and Customer Experience, Kim Lawrence, joins Small Caps to discuss its groundbreaking muon tomography technology. The Canadian based company uses cosmic rays to detect ore bodies deep beneath the Earth’s surface without disturbing the environment. Ideon’s non-invasive approach offers a wealth of benefits for the mining industry by reducing environmental impact by eliminating the need for extensive drilling, improved exploration efficiency providing a more comprehensive understanding of the subsurface, enabling miners to pinpoint ore bodies with greater precision and enhanced ore characterisation with detailed 3D imagery. Ideon boasts a list of mining majors as clients with the likes of BHP, Rio Tinto Teck Resources, Glencore, NexGen and Vale, all using the company’s technology.
