This user guide explains the basic information that the tool user must know to perform a search of mineral deposits and use the search results.
The results shown in this tool are exclusively based on data from the ProMine Mineral Deposit database. This was developed through a European co-funded project (2009-2013) as part of EU-FP7, which aimed to stimulate the extractive industry by identification of potential areas of interest in Europe.
Since the ProMine database has not been updated since 2013, some features of the characterised mineral deposits could have changed, especially the metallogenic family.
The search for mineral deposits with the ION4RAW tool is guided by sequential steps that are enabled as search parameters are input. It should be noted that this version of the tool only allows for selecting one value for each search parameter and only data on European mineral deposits are available.
Once the search is complete, the tool shows three different areas:
Finally, if the user wants to start a new search, clicking on the New search button, the tool returns to the initial screen. In case the user wants to modify the search, s/he must click on the Edit search button, and the tool returns to the initial screen, maintaining the previously selected search parameters.
