Registration for attendees is closed.


MinProXT 2021 features invited talks by eminent scientists from the mineral exploration industry, research organizations and academic institutions. The primary objective of the webinar is to present ideas on the varied topics related to mineral prospectivity analyses and exploration targeting. The webinar aims to be a confluence point to foster open discussions and interaction between the predictive mapping research experts, the public sector organization executives, and the experienced professionals from the mining and mineral exploration industry.

A virtual poster session will also be conducted to encourage participation from students and early career research scientists (but not limited to them only). The speakers of accepted posters will have an opportunity to describe their poster as a ‘Lightning Talk’ during the oral sessions. The abstracts related to invited oral presentations and accepted poster presentations will be compiled into a book of proceedings of MinProXT 2021 and released online after the webinar.

The two topics that the webinar will address are:

  • Theme 1: Advances and recent development in the methods of prospectivity mapping and geoscientific data analyses, and the associated uncertainties, limitations, and challenges.
  • Theme 2: Real-world utilization of the prospectivity maps in varied fields such as land-use assignments, infrastructure planning and others in addition to mineral deposit exploration.

MinProXT 2021 is an open-to-all webinar and we do not charge any participation fee from the attendees. However, we would require the attendees to register for the webinar.

Detailed schedule and list of invited speakers will be added here at a later date.
