Data from a variety of sources can be used to generate realistic exploration targets for VHMS mineralisation in the Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus. This project used a weights of evidence approach with new data sources, in conjunction with older legacy data, to define areas of high mineralisation potential and targets for future exploration work. The final prospectivity map, identifying areas of low, medium and high mineralisation potential, defined eight areas with high mineralisation potential. Three of these areas have been outlined as possible targets for future exploration due to their size, lack of previously known mineral occurrences, and proximity to known mineral occurrences and mining districts on Cyprus.
