This publication contains the various communications presented at the Second European workshop on remote sensing in mineral exploration organized by the Commission of the European Communities. One section covers the experiments realized at a national level, whilst the other contains the results obtained in the framework of the EC programme where the Commission has been playing a pioneer role in this R&D sector since 1979. In both cases, some significant results have been obtained delineating possible new mineralized targets, and even new mineralizations. A large number of papers presented in this volume concern the application of the TM of the second generation of satellites. TM has not only a much better resolution (30 m) than Landsat MSS (80 m) but also a larger spectral band, with seven channels against four for MSS. Other experiments also concern airborne sensors such as ATM, AIS and laser where interesting results have been obtained.
