    Mineral exploration is the process of finding ores (commercially viable concentrations of minerals) to mine. Mineral exploration is a much more intensive, organized and professional form of mineral prospecting and, though it frequently uses the services of prospecting, the process of mineral exploration, on the whole, is much more involved. The foremost stage of mining starts with the process of finding and exploration of the mineral deposit. I
