ABOUT EIS

EIS will develop new data analysis methods by applying artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning to mineral prospectivity mapping together with new geomodels and mineral systems modelling.

The Exploration Information System (EIS) consortium consists of 17 partners from leading research institutes, academia, service providers, and industry.

The consortium members come from six European Union member states (FI, FR, DE, ES, CZ, SE) and South Africa. One associate member of the consortium comes from Brazil.

This consortium represents the main metal-producing regions of Europe: Fennoscandian Shield, Iberian Pyrite Belt, and Central European Belt. These economically most important metallogenic belts of the EU have diverse geology with evident potential for different types of new mineral resources.

The mineral deposits in these belts are the most feasible sources of critical, high-tech, and other economically important metals in the EU.

Furthermore, the project has reference sites in South Africa and Brazil. The project consortium has also a vast international collaboration network. Fifty percent of the Advisory Board members have been invited from outside the EU.

The project will apply the UNFC code to harmonize the diverse population of mineral deposits and occurrences which will be used as training sites and validation data sets in prospectivity mapping for critical raw materials within EU.

In addition, tools will be tested for secondary raw materials prospectivity.

3 objectives

3 objectives logo white circle 1

To enhance the probability of finding new sources of critical raw materials for the EU’s economy, EIS will apply advanced methods, to develop new geomodels and novel, fast and cost-effective spatial data analysis tools for mineral exploration analysis, mapping, and mineral systems modeling.

The project will develop the “EIS Toolkit” and the “EIS QGIS Wizard”.

3 objectives logo white circle 2

To reduce the current high exploration costs and to improve the accuracy of the early exploration phase, the tools developed by EIS aim to reduce the impact of exploration and mining on nature. Making it more sustainable.

Reducing exploration footprints is key to EIS, therefore the project will make the most out of the already existing exploration data.

3 objectives logo white circle 3

To succeed in the green transition and become climate-neutral by 2050, the EU’s economy needs an increasing amount of critical raw materials. Therefore, different sources of CRMs are necessary.

EIS will raise awareness of the importance of critical raw materials to the EU’s transition, economy, and welfare.
