The paper contains the description and application results of a technology for integrated geophysical<br>investigations to provide prediction-exploration surveys for copper-nickel ores and platinum group<br>metals (PGM). The main elements of the technology have been developed and successfully tested during<br>some geophysical investigations carried out by VIRG and the Central Kola Expedition in the Monchegorsk<br>ore district. The investigation results confirmed the presence of a multistage magmatic system having complicated<br>structure in this region. The integrated interpretation resulted in localization of some targets promising<br>for ore mineralization, in recommendations for check drilling and estimation of copper-nickel ores and<br>PGM prognostic reserves. The community of physical-geological characteristics of copper-nickel ore deposits<br>in different regions of Russia allows this technology to be also applied to other ore provinces
