BHP Xplor is a global accelerator program targeting innovative, early-stage mineral exploration companies to find the critical resources necessary to drive the energy transition.​

The six-month program is designed to help startup founders further build out their exploration concept and become ‘investment ready’, levelling up their operations, business and technical skillset through the three program tracks.

With an ever-increasing demand for the critical minerals to drive the global energy transition, BHP is looking to accelerate new discoveries through opening its doors to the best and brightest minds with exciting exploration opportunities.

The BHP Xplor program is looking for startups exploring for copper and nickel. The program includes a US$500,000 grant, access to the BHP network, industry expert connections, a tailored education curriculum and connection with a global community of Xplorers.

You can learn more and hear from the first cohort of 7 companies about their experiences in the BHP Xplor program, here.
