BHP Xplor

Xplor is dedicated to accelerating innovative, early-stage mineral exploration start-ups to find the critical resources necessary to drive the energy transition. Together with our global partners we are searching for the next generation of Xplorers. 

This is Xplor, a global program to uncover the people that could deliver deposits in the critical minerals that our world needs.
