Transforming how you explore the world.

Earth figures with numbers

As new precious and base metal deposit discoveries become less frequent, mining companies must become more efficient with their spending. To make the most of your exploration budget, you need accurate targeting and the ability to minimize operational and financial risks. XploreIQ will help you determine any future potential for resource expansion and optimize your exploration investment.

Why use XploreIQ?

XploreIQ uses machine learning applications to help identify correlations and trends through the use of powerful statistical algorithms. It adds value to both your historical and existing scientific data and is especially useful if you are in the process of creating a new geological model and exploration targets.

By adding XploreIQ to your exploration plan, we can help you build an efficient exploration program, save money and realize a quicker return on your investment.

Our algorithms

The quality of the machine learning algorithm is critical to ensuring the success of a project. We use three algorithms with both our own GENESIS™ software and Microsoft Azure:

  • Specialized phylogenetic algorithm process – the starting point for 3D modeling

Specialized Phylogentic Algorithm

  • Boosted classification tree algorithm process – aims to minimize prediction error

Boosted Classification Trees Algorithm

  • Bayesian gaussian latent variable process – useful for dealing with missing data

Bayesian Gaussian Latent Variable Process
