The quality of a prospectivity map is dependent on the quality of the inputs used in the analysis. In regions with little to no exploration history, datasets are often of questionable quality, incomplete with information missing due to incomplete mapping or data simply not being available over certain areas. This study investigates how a data-driven technique for GIS based prospectivity analysis can be used to overcome such challenges for targeting potential mineralized areas. Using data from Mongolia, an iterative weights of evidence method is used to evaluate potential orogenic gold mineralization.
