Technical Communities

Critical Minerals

The Critical Minerals Technical Community (CMTC) is a network of dedicated EAGE members, aiming to bring together professionals, researchers, academics and students with a professional focus on the topic. Participation is open to all.

CMTC is an interdisciplinary group focused on providing members with insights and perspectives on the critical minerals sector, key to the global energy transition and diversification. Recognizing the dynamic nature of ‘criticality’ in minerals, the community is committed to maintaining an up-to-date understanding of this evolving landscape by continuously reviewing and discussing mineral resource classifications, exploration and extraction technologies, and global supply chain dynamics.

Originally established as the EAGE Mineral Exploration Geophysics community, this group expanded in April 2024 by synergizing with members from the EAGE Decarbonization & Energy Transition community.

You are welcome to join to be part of an active collaborative network that shares relevant news, updates, career development initiatives, opportunities to cooperate on projects and discussions on the latest scientific developments.

The Critical Minerals Community is committed to offering members thorough insights into the ever-changing realm of critical minerals, covering the entire value chain, especially in energy transition applications. Our intentional multidisciplinary approach not only reflects members' diverse interests but also fosters innovation and a balanced understanding of this complex field."

Critical Minerals Activities

  • Active involvement in the ‘Conference on Geophysics for Mineral Exploration and Mining under the umbrella of the EAGE Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition, as well as in various technical meetings organized by the Association throughout the year – including GET.
  • In addition, the community contributes to EAGE journal publications and organizes webinars and short meetings for the community, and shares relevant opportunities with members.

Update your affiliations

Connecting with professionals who share similar interests – such as the members of the EAGE Wind Energy Community – is key in promoting innovation and technical progress. That’s why we invite you to update your EAGE affiliations to Local Chapters, Circles, Technical and Special Interest Communities. This will help you stay connected with fellow members and ensure our offerings meet your needs.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
