After its successful introduction and first hosting by Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) in 2021, the second edition of the “Mineral Prospectivity and Exploration Targeting (MinProXT)” webinar is being organized in 2022 by Beak Consultants GmbH in co-operation with Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT).
The MinProXT webinar is intended to be continued as yearly webinar with alternating hosting and organizing partners, in the following years, too. The webinar will take place in the first week of November 2022 as hybrid event from 1st to 3rd November 2022 – with the possibility to participate online as well as on-site in Freiberg, Germany.

- Theme 1: Advances and recent development in the methods of 2D and 3D prospectivity mapping and geoscientific data analyses, and the associated limitations, uncertainties, 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 2022 will feature invited and non-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.
