We conducted a forward modelling detectability study to prepare for controlled-source electromagnetic measurements above a ferrous mineral deposit in central Sweden. The aims of our detectability study are to test the applicability of our newly developed 3D forward modelling algorithm on a real field example and to investigate practical aspects such as preferred station locations for the field campaign. The presentation will give some insight into the functionality of our software and illustrate the benefits of three dimensional modelling. The work is funded by the Smart Exploration project. Smart Exploration has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 775971.
