With the rapid progress of IT, the mineral exploration has already entered into a new period of digitization and quantification. The "three component" mineral prediction and resource assessments are suggested as a new approach to the "digital mineral prospecting". The "three component" mineral prediction, based on geo anomaly analysis, is guided by the research into both the diversity of mineralization and the spectrum of mineral deposits. Close combination of these three aspects of quantitative study serves both as a new starting point for digital prospecting and as a foundation and prerequisite for IT application in this field.
