Mineral research and site modeling

The material testing workshop at the University of Miskolc, boasting a unique instrument park, plays a vital role in geological research focused on ore and non-metallic mineral raw material deposits and indications. The research spans site model creation, geological interpretation, and innovative techniques. Leveraging modern analytical instruments, expertise, and extending into robotic geological research and sensor technology, the workshop contributes to advancements in raw material research and instrument development. As part of a research consortium, the workshop has access to cutting-edge European research technologies, such as UNEXUP, capable of mapping and in situ material analysis of cavities filled with groundwater, including flooded mining areas, caves, or karst watercourses.
