the Mineral Processing Technology Roadmap, addresses those technologies leading to mineral processing improvements which may apply to one or to multiple mining product areas. Many other steps in the mining process are identified in the vision but are not addressed in this document.
Prospecting and exploration Various techniques are used in the search for a mineral deposit, an activity called prospecting. Once a discovery has been made, the property containing a deposit, called the prospect, is explored to determine some of the more important characteristics of the deposit.

How Explorers develop an exploration strategy, how they develop an exploration model and design an exploration program and select the optimal exploration tools to carry out that program. As usual of the talk will end with a series of learning points from this talk. There are two fundamental truths about the exploration industry; the first is that most exploration programs are doomed to failure .

Rosenberg and Jacques Guizerix Mineral materials form the basis for energy production and the manufacturing industry. material costs may or may not constitute an essential part of the cost of the final .
Mineral Exploration: Principles and Applications, Second Edition, presents an interdisciplinary approach on the full scope of mineral exploration.Everything from grass root discovery, objective base sequential exploration, mining, beneficiation, extraction, economic evaluation, policies and acts, rules and regulations, sustainability, and environmental impacts is covered.
In 2018, exploration expenditures were approximately US$ 10.1 bn, and are expected to grow by 5 – 10 % in 2019. The peak of US$ 21.5 bn was reached in 2012. Exploration spending largely follows the average metal commodity prices, which are shown here as an indexed value.
