Our Mission

The mission of the Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) is to apply scientific research to increasing both the rate and quality of discoveries made in mineral exploration, without relying on substantial increases in exploration expenditure.

We work to achieve this through:

  • Operating a sustainable research business of team-oriented individuals engaging with the minerals industry, and with thought leaders in geoscience and mineral exploration globally.
  • Training the next generation of geoscientists in how to effectively combine fundamental and applied research approaches within the minerals industry and academia.
  • Delivering innovative research outputs recognized and respected at the highest academic levels, and providing a clear value proposition for our industrial research partners.

The research activities of the CET are coordinated around five key themes reflecting the balance of skills and expertise available within the Centre:
