Information on remaining, although yet unknown, mineral resources is becoming increasingly important for decision-making at country and regional level. In addition, exploration companies need good quantitative information of the expected endowment in the area selection phase.

The 3-year project “Mineral Resource Assessment Platform (MAP)”, co-funded by EIT RawMaterials, is coming to its conclusion. In this project, we have developed a free open source software called MapWizard that can be used for streamlining the assessment process of undiscovered mineral resources. In addition, MapWizard has been integrated into the commercial advangeo® 2D Prediction software that Beak Consultants has developed independently.

In the workshop, we will launch the MapWizard and its integration into advangeo® 2D Prediction software. We will also present the results from assessments of undiscovered mineral resources, performed by using the MapWizard for different mineral deposit types in Skellefteå area in Sweden and the Caledonides in Norway, Erzgebirge in Germany, in Iceland and in the Rainbow area, Mid-Atlantic ridge. The programme of the event can be found below.

The presentations are given by experts of MAP project partners (Geological Survey of Finland, Geological Survey of Sweden, Geological Survey of Norway, Iceland GeoSurvey, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Beak Consultants GmbH).
