Geological data collection and integration is not being done consistently or robustly by exploration or mining geologists. This course is aimed at both these groups and will be accessible to people who are not experts.
The field of mineral exploration is evolving quickly as new tools (both hardware and digital) are being integrated in conventional workflows. Geochemical and geophysical data collection and data are producing large volumes of data which are not being captured and integrated effectively. Likewise, “desktop geologists” who specialize in GIS and machine learning do not have an effective grasp of what data is useful during exploration, and how to use this data. This course leverages the applied and academic experience of the lecturers to help participants bridge the gap between practical and academic methods currently used in the industry, to better facilitate data integration and deposit discovery.
• Understanding of top geochemical and geophysical datasets being used for artificial intelligence enabled exploration
• Understanding the differences and advantages of processing data both “the traditional way” and the “AI way”
• Understanding of freely available software and workflows that will enable geologists to better integrate and understand their data
• Experiencing a crash course in using the free software, through practical examples
COURSE DELIVERY STRATEGY:
All speakers are regular lecturers and short course deliverers, and so incorporate high quality slide decks and clear messaging into their presentation, along with the ability to discuss and defend any information being shown. The interactive question periods are very valuable for encouraging audience involvement and buy in. The practical component (data interrogation on participant's laptops) helps to deliver the feeling that material has been understood and will add value in their professional activities/employment.
