Windfall Geotek (TSX.V: WIN) has been providing Artificial Intelligence Analysis, using the Computer Aided Resources Detection System (CARDS) for exploration companies worldwide for over 15 years. During that time they have worked on more than 85 different projects and are the world leaders in AI Exploration. As with any machine learning, the more information you run through the system, the smarter it gets and this is why Windfall will remain at the top of this sector for many years to come. With people turning to technology, now more than ever, the CARDS system is very quickly becoming a sought after geophysical tool that exploration companies are utilizing to save time and money. While many mining and exploration companies still have an old school mentality and prefer grass roots exploration, it is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the value of AI as an added exploration tool. The fact is this technology can save explorers time and efforts by focusing in on high priority targets, as well as millions in exploration costs.
Over the next several months we will be highlighting Windfall Geotek discoveries one by one and following up on what came of the targets that were provided by the company. For the second write up, we’ll look back at the Falco Resources, 4 corners targets.
In December 2017, Falco Resources appointed Albert Mining Inc. (Windfall Geotek) to analyze historical data in the Rouyn-Noranda mining camp using their pattern recognition algorithms (“CARDS”). The AI software learned the signatures of positive and negative gold and base metals targets and identified new targets with a high discovery potential. Fifty anomalies in gold (15), copper (13), zinc (11) and silver (11) were identified and these anomalies were grouped into 11 exploration areas scheduled for follow up.
Here are the results from the follow up exploration campaign
(Montreal, Québec, September 10, 2018) – Falco Resources Ltd. (FPC: TSX-V) (“Falco” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from the recent prospecting work conducted by the Company. Recent field work resulted in the discovery of new gold showings at Four Corners, located 20 kilometers from the Horne 5 Project in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Based on the use of Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) technology, a compilation was done exposing numerous anomalies. A field program, still in progress, was undertaken in order to test the best anomalies.
FIELD WORK PROGRAM:
A field investigation and sampling campaign occurred during the summer of 2018, targeting the sectors of interest identified by CARDS and by the IP anomalies. Of the eleven identified areas, four have now been investigated. Multiple samples returned anomalous gold values (figure 1).
One of the most interesting area is the Four Corners property where a new showing was identified near a CARDS target and following field work. A grab sample, composed of felsic volcanic rock strongly hematized with quartz veinlets and 1-3% pyrite, returned 9.53 g/t Au. From eight additional samples collected on the same 5 metre x 10 metre outcrop, seven samples returned grades over 1g/t Au (ranging from 0.11 g/t Au and 5.07 g/t Au, figure 2). At about 100 metres to the NNE in extension of this outcrop, similar rock returned 1.04 g/t Au suggesting continuity of the mineralisation.
Additional field work also occurred on the Four Corners Dubuisson property, located less than 4km to the SW of the former Four Corners new showing, along a known regional structure. Grab samples, returning 12.79 g/t Au and 3.10 g/t Au (figure 2) were collected from an angular mineralized block. The angular shape and size (about 1.5m) of the block may indicate close proximity of the source.
Windfalls Geotek has effectively highlighted a NE-SW structural corridor of great interest for gold. Field exploration work continues along strike between these two new surface showings. Channel sampling of the Four Corners showing is in progress on the surface already exposed. Mechanical stripping, mapping and more channel sampling are planned in the next weeks after receiving the permit. The work will allow a better geological and structural understanding of the gold distribution and controls.
The excellent results on these greenfield properties are very exciting and promising as they are located in zones of very little historical work and without existing showings. The zones remain open in all direction. Although the focus will be on the Four Corners sector, the field work program will continue on other CARDS targets over the next weeks. The Company is very confident on finding other showings based on the initial success of the methodology and work program to date.
The CARDS system made this operation possible by finding targets previously unidentified. CARDS proprietary algorithms are undervalued and under utilized tool in exploration today. Almost every project they have worked on has been successful in identifying good targets and many have gone on to produce for their respective companies. It is our belief that in the coming years Windfall Geotek will be at the forefront of many new discoveries as explorers are looking for new ways to advance their projects in effective and cost efficient manner.
As more information becomes available on this project we will update the article so be sure to check back in the coming weeks and months as the company continues to explore these targets and update their shareholders.
