RDC GeoEXPLORE (2017-19)

GeoEXPLORE is an RDC-directed research program to accelerate R&D specific to mineral and petroleum exploration and development. This program supports industry-led R&D projects related to mineral and petroleum exploration and development. Increasing geoscientific and related knowledge in these sectors can help reduce exploration risks and costs, enhance discovery success, improve processing techniques, and encourage resource-development opportunities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.

This includes opportunities to increase production, recovery and process efficiency through technological enhancements, a better understanding of deposit/reservoir characteristics and reduced environmental impacts.

Objectives
In support of mineral and petroleum exploration and development in Newfoundland and Labrador, the program objectives are:

  • Enhance geoscience R&D capacity, collaboration and industry innovation;
  • Reduce exploration risk, increase discovery success and support innovation through to resource development
  • Better understand deposit/reservoir and geological characteristics; increase production, recovery and process efficiency through technological enhancements; and reduce environmental impacts.

Project funding of up to $750,000 is available per project over a maximum three-year period.

To learn more about eligibility and prior to developing a proposal, you are encouraged to contact RDC and discuss GeoScience R&D funding opportunities. Their information is located below:
