This paper proposes an experientialist model of terminological metaphorisation based on a combined terminological and experientialist approach to that phenomenon. The model is derived from the combination of the basic premises of the Concept Theory of Terminology and the Concept Theory of Experientialism, with establishing the common threads between the two theories and filtering out only those elements of experientialism that are compatible with basic principles of terminological analysis. A conclusion is drawn that a modern theory of terminology, which is assumed to be still in the making, should be constructed both on cognitive and terminological foundations. The theoretical assumptions are exemplified with a representative corpus of metaphorical mining terms.
