Objective

Deliverables

  • Conceptual framework for orebody-EGS

    This deliverable will synthesise the outcomes of Task 1.1-1.3 in order to develop the initial methodological framework for building an EGS centred on ultra-deep orebodies. This methodological framework will be used as a guide for the implementation of WP2 that will carry out a series of laboratory experiments and simulations validating the methodological framework. The framework will define both the overall concept for converting different types of orebodies into an EGS reservoir and the series of experiments and measurements that will need to be conducted in order to validate the concepts to TRL4 in a laboratory environment.

  • EGS-relevant review of metallogenesis

    This deliverable is related to Task 1.1, which will result in a synthesis of our understanding of the types of metallic mineral occurrences that exists at depths below existing levels of conventional mining. We are aiming to investigate mineral potential in depth and temperature zones that are currently the target of EGS (depth of 4 km or more and ambient rock temperature in excess of 180 °C). The geometry, extent, structure and textural characteristics of mineralisation are primarily influenced by the host rocks, magmatic/hydrothermal processes and fluid-rock interaction. Understanding the origin, genesis and scale of fracture systems (mineralisation frequently develops in fractures) is also vital. All EGS projects as well as hydrothermal systems all over the world show that natural fractures play an important role in controlling deep fluid circulation and heat extraction from deep ground layers. Understanding the genesis of natural fracture pattern hence is also vital for the effective development of geothermal projects in general and EGS in particular. The focus of the review will concern deposit genesis, composition, (sub)types, etc. International analogues will also be reviewed (e.g. South African gold deposits, Canadian Cu-Ni volcanogenic massive sulphides, Australian porphyry copper-gold deposits). Previous work using deep penetration high resolution geophysical methods on ultra-deep ore deposits will be re-evaluated to determine key geophysical exploration criteria for deep seated ore mineralization.

  • Report on data availability

    Under Task 1.2. a report wil be produced on the availability of data related to ultra-deep metallic mineral deposits. The report will be compiled from five reports produced under sub-Tasks 1.2.1-1.2.5, (South West England, Iberian Pyrite Belt, Romania, Sweden, Europe integrated).

  • Project image and stylebook

    The project image will include a logo, project-specific design elements and various templates that will be used for creating a uniform appearance in the project. the stylebook will contain all design elements which can be used during the project-related communication.

  • Data Management Plan

    Innovation management will develop overall strategy for innovation in CHPM2030 to maximise service-based innovation for the project, allowing Consortium partners to cooperate with a common understanding of goals and processes during product development and the definition of subsequent use-case scenarios. Innovation goals/targets/benefits will be specified drawing inspiration from energy market and policy requirements also capitalising on the organizational pillars of innovation, especially with regards current practices, business culture and technology environment for the uptake of energy efficient solutions in mining. We will also undertake a ‘market acceptance’ analysis along the value chain, enabling potential users to respond to the opportunities offered by CHPM2030 for the creation of new ideas, processes or products. Outcomes of the project are designed from the very beginning to be suitable for long-term deployment, supporting a long-term vision. The overall concepts and all key technology deliverables will become public domain (PU), however there are some background IPR related to individual technology components that will remain protected. This will require a very careful management of Intellectual Property Rights.

  • Brochure First edition

    Project brochures (hardcopy) will be printed in the 6th month of the project and updated 2 times (in M18 and M32). The first version will be designed to provide a general overview of the project objectives. Additional posters and leaflets will be produced as required (for example when attending conferences or exhibitions). These brochures and posters will always be produced by the design team of EFG with the digital/electronic versions made available for project partners for translation into their own languages and for local printing and distribution.

  • Basic project website

    The web site will be built using open source software and the content management will be made by EFG, based on contributions from all partners. EFG will facilitate the management process, and make sure that it is understood and accessible to all partners. This approach ensures a collaborative effort of all partners, instead of having one webmaster providing all the content. The basic website will contain the main project data.

  • Brochure Update 1

    Project brochures (hardcopy) will be printed in the 6th month of the project and updated 2 times (in M18 and M32). The first version will be designed to provide a general overview of the project objectives. Brochure Update 1, the second version will be designed to introduce interim project results.

  • Newsletter 2

    To help raise awareness to industry stakeholders, both within the partner countries and even in other EU Member States, the consortium will generate a minimum of 4 newsletters during the duration of the project. These newsletters (in digital format) will include besides information on the project events, also information on best practices and case-studies promoting geothermal energy. Newsletter 2 will provide information on the outcomes of WP1 and the work developed under WP2.

  • Press-releases and media kits related with CHPM2030 initiatives and outcomes

    The management of the communications activities will encompass provision of a news feed for the social media network, the web site and blog creation and management, preparation of press-releases, production of media kits, copy for national journals that the third parties can use (and translate from) and the publication and dissemination of key central documents (e.g. deliverables from the previous WPs, factsheets etc). These documents will be available for download in PDF from the project web site. In addition, hard copies concerning the project aims and outcomes will be printed for distribution in conferences and at other external events. This task will also provide templates, guidelines and a logo for the project partners and third parties to use in communication activities.

  • Final project website

    The web site will be built using open source software and the content management will be made by EFG, based on contributions from all partners. The final website will be continuously updated according to the project results.

  • Newsletter 1

    To help raise awareness to industry stakeholders, both within the partner countries and even in other EU Member States, the consortium will generate a minimum of 4 newsletters during the duration of the project. These newsletters (in digital format) will include besides information on the project events, also information on best practices and case-studies promoting geothermal energy. Newsletter 1 will provide information on the project data and the outcomes of the kick-off meeting.

  • EGS relevant review of ore-body structures

    Three types of target orebodies have been identified earlier in this proposal and described in Chapter 1. It is conceivable that Tasks 1.1 and 1.2 will lead to the identification of additional target types that could be relevant for a CHPM. Task1.3 will investigate the characteristics of deep ore bodies relevant to heat and metal extraction, including ore mineralogy, texture, geochemical conditions, thermal properties, fluid and heat flow properties. Rock stresses and their impact on fracture formation will be investigated with the help of pressure dependent petrophysical models. EGS-relevant properties, such as fracture system, chemical composition, solubility of metallic minerals of the different types of orebodies and their suitability to geo-engineering techniques will be reviewed. In situations where representative samples are not available these will be obtained with the help of the partner geological surveys, or careful extrapolations will be made. The unique minerals collection of the University of Miskolc (dating back to 1735) and other project partners will also be utilised in this respect.
