Mineral explorations include malleable, geochemical, geophysical, and remote sensing explorations in order to find various mineral deposits of economic value. However, each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, so that they will be used with regard to the type and precision of explorations and spatial and temporal limits.

Each exploration operation involves two fundamental stages of prospecting and exploration.

Prospecting is the first stage in the exploration process. If this stage is followed by satisfactory results, operations in the mine will be initiated. In fact, searching and determining the location of a deposit is one of the main objectives of prospecting. This stage contains geological, geophysical, and geochemical prospecting. In general, the prospecting aims to determine the location of mineralization-related anomalies, while the exploration aims at determining their limits and evaluating. 

The geometric shape, geographic range, and value of a deposit are determined by similar techniques of prospecting but with greater precision in the exploration stage. According to international standards, exploration is divided into four distinct stages, including identification, prospecting, relative assurance of the existence of deposit, and preliminary and detailed or final exploration stages, respectively.

Exploration operations at Lalegoster Niayesh Company consist of the identification, prospecting, and preliminary exploratory stages that have been recently entered the final exploration stage through specialist human resources and high efficiency drilling machines with the state of the art technology. When the pre-feasibility and feasibility phases are completed in each promising areas,  regions with economic extraction capability will be separated from other regions.

With targeted plannings, these services will significantly increase the progress and capacities of the mines and national economic potentials in the province in the near future.
