Mineral Prospectivity Mapping (MPM)

Mineral Prospectivity Mapping (MPM)

​​​Geological Survey Ireland invites your input on the planning of a government of Ireland sponsored Mineral Prospectivity Mapping (MPM) initiative to support mineral exploration in Ireland.

An MPM initiative would:

• Collect, organize and interpret existing data; including the identification of data gaps

• Develop methodical and standardized value-added data

• Maximize the use of industry data

• Refine metallogenic models for commodities of interest

• Utilise appropriate, state-of-the-art, data-driven and knowledge-driven MPM techniques.

Please visit the link to complete a short survey (approximately 10 minutes duration). Your input is vital in informing an approach to MPM which targets key mineral domains using the most appropriate techniques.
