In a context requiring increased transparency, a special effort will be made to make this project as visible as possible by :

– The transfer of knowledge through the publication of articles in renowned journals (on average one per year)

– Participation in conferences

– Presentation and discussion with the Minamata Secretariat in Geneva

– Inventory of the collected samples by the Geological Museum of Lausanne. In accordance with Swiss Federal Ordinance on Good Laboratory Practice (OGLP; Articles 3.4 & 10), the inventory, legal deposit and secure conservation of studied and analyzed samples in State Geological Museum, Lausanne “Musée cantonal de géologie, Lausanne” guarantees long-term accessibility, allowing additional studies or verifications.
