Mining exploration in the era of big data

CARDS modeling and prediction system

CARDS is a state-of-the-art computer system that uses the latest artificial intelligence and pattern recognition algorithms to analyze large digital exploration data sets and produce exploration targets. CARDS uses many layers of gridded data (variables) to learn the “signature” of known mineralized sites (positive cells) in a given area. The area is then scored and cells with a high similarity to the sought signature are identified.

Shown below is an in-depth 4 page document from Mining Engineering explaining the CARDS modeling system.
