Description of work/Implementation
Aims of the pre study are: - to increase knowledge of mining, its premises, with a focus on “new” mining areas, with little or no tradition of mining. - to lay the foundation of an interactive exhibition, Metals4U, for school children age 6-16, that is also interesting and available for the general public. - to over bridge one of the problems we see, the lack of information, only then we can keep the discussions on a higher level and reach well thought solutions. - to investigate ways to finance and organize Metals4U.
