Luis Montiel Petro - Vale

Talk Abstract:

With the development and availability of algorithms and tools for machine learning, there is an opportunity to integrate these technologies in current exploration efforts. Exploration geologists analyze large and diverse amount of geoscientific data towards identifying mineral prospective areas. There is an opportunity to combine current knowledge and understanding of the areas with machine learning techniques to enhance the targeting process. Besides capturing nonlinear patterns within the data, machine learning models allow integrating large amounts of data that can be difficult for professionals to process. Model results outline the capability of machine learning models to identify known deposits and prospective areas, confirming that those techniques are applicable as an integration method, and it is recommended their incorporation in routine exploration targeting workflows.
