Deposit Targeting

Deposit Targeting using Neural Net Analysis

Paterson, Grant and Watson Limited and EarthScan Ltd. have developed new methodology for ore deposit targeting, under a two-year project sponsored by the Canadian Space Agency.

It is applied in three steps:

  1. Process the geophysical and remote sensing data to develop signatures of interest.
  2. Apply neural net training to one or more ore deposit targets (known in the area or similar areas, or using model data) incorporating other data (e.g. geology, geochemistry).
  3. Apply neural net simulation to the data itself, using the training results to locate new targets.

This methodology is currently available as a service, and will become available as an add-on module to commercially available software packages.
