Introducing IGS Xplore….

PNG LOGOIGS Xplore is an innovative new mineral prospectivity tool designed to de-risk early-stage mineral exploration. This tool, developed by IGS Ltd, is unique as it is a semantically-driven analytical tool, rather than a purely GIS-based methodology.

IGS Xplore uses expert knowledge to identify potentially prospective areas based on non-statistical geological rules governing up to 50 known mineralisation models. It generates prospectivity maps for regions or countries using base geodata quickly and efficiently.

IGS Xplore will be formally launched in early 2016.

For more information, please go to our IGS Xplore webpage, or contact Dr Aoife Brady, IGS Xplore’s Product Manager, at
