Geosoft sponsorship supports geophysical image analysis research at the Centre for Exploration Targeting

Research aimed at developing better exploration targeting models and new technology packages for predicting mineral deposits

Geosoft has announced a Knowledge from Data© Sponsorship to support continuing collaboration between Geosoft and the Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET). This support will facilitate relevant image analysis research through short-term CET student projects and communication between CET academics and Geosoft.

Established in 2005 as a partnership between the Government of Western Australia, the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, and members of the mineral exploration industry, the CET conducts international research and applied projects aimed at developing better exploration targeting models and new technology packages for predicting deposits.

“Geosoft’s collaboration with the Centre for Exploration Targeting has grown over the years, and we’re pleased to support CET research initiatives through sponsorship,” said Darin Bryce, Managing Director, Geosoft Australia. “We look forward to contributing to applied research and technology outcomes that progress our shared goal of improving the success of exploration targeting.”

The CET’s Geophysics and Image Analysis research initiatives are aimed at making significant and valued contributions to improve efficiency, accuracy and consistency in the use of data for the mining and exploration industry and other geoscientific communities.  The objective is to maximize human intuition and minimize human biases in geoscientific data analysis though computer aided interpretation and computer field technology.

In addition to the sponsorship, Geosoft and the CET have partnered to develop and distribute image analysis software as CET extensions to Geosoft’s Oasis montaj 3D visualization and analysis platform.  Recently released software includes CET Grid Analysis, providing a rapid unbiased workflow that reduces time when interpreting  large volumes of gridded data; and CET Porphyry Detection, providing rapid, objective and consistent analysis of magnetic data to automatically locate porphyry magnetic signatures.
