As a result of a high-resolution 3D seismic survey completed earlier this year over a 21 square kilometre area (by HiSeis), several new exploration targets near the Neves-Corvo mine were identified.

Seismic clearly indicated a southerly extension of the Semblana deposit and a new copper sulphide deposit south of Semblana. Several new exploration targets was discovered and identified near the Neves-Corvo mine after applying high-resolution 3D seismic survey.
