About us

Quantum Pacific Exploration (QPX) is a privately funded mineral discovery company, part of the Quantum Pacific Group. Our goal is to transform the way natural resources are discovered globally.

 

We aim to achieve equilibrium between the art of geological interpretation and the science of handling data and information in the context of a value-driven business approach.

 

QPX provides an innovative operational edge by employing a globally distributed network of talent. The company was born from the Israeli high-tech environment and has grown into a global corporation, with research and corporate headquarters in Boston, USA and mineral discovery operations in Chile.

 

 

QPX Chile

QPX Chile is an operational division, a “search and find” business, focused on discoveries in new search spaces. QPX Chile is taking the research done in Boston by QPX and is spearheading the application of the Proprietary Discovery Platform in Chile.

 

The team directs a well-funded multi-year discovery program over a strong property portfolio. The Proprietary Discovery Platform has already been applied in multiple sites and proved our concept. We have successfully identified porphyry copper mineral systems at depth.

 

QPX Chile is well established, having a valuable ground position and a solid ecosystem. We have built strategic partnerships with major mining companies such as Barrick Gold and with investment banks like Asset Chile, in addition to several third-party agreements.
