Mineral Systems Analysis

What is mineral systems analysis, and how can it help in the process of exploration targeting?

The Mineral Systems approach to exploration targeting defines mineralisation search space through a rigorous conceptual model of how mineral endowment is concentrated within geological systems. This approach focuses the explorer on mappable expressions of high quality mineralisation at a scale appropriate to the exploration decision - be that global, regional, or local. Take a look at this introduction to see how this process works, and how it can help to target resources more effectively in mineral exploration.
