montaj plus Extension Predictive Targeting

The Predictive Targeting with Neural Networks software provides Oasis montaj GXs for training, simulation and target generation. It allows you to apply neural network simulation to the study area, to locate signatures similar to the known targets.

The Predictive Targeting with Neural Networks extension provides a set of Oasis montaj GXs for training, simulation and target generation, as well as a comprehensive tutorial.

The process works on gridded data, and requires these three stages:

  1. Delineate one or more known targets to provide signatures. These may be from within the study area, from a different area or from synthetic models.
  2. Apply neural network training to the known targets.
  3. Apply neural network simulation to the study area, to locate signatures similar to the known targets.

The simulation results may then be gridded, windowed and scaled within Oasis montaj, to highlight the new targets of interest.

This approach provides for the integration of a wide range of data types (e.g. geology, geophysics, geochemistry, remote sensing, topography) for robust and unbiased generation of exploration targets.

Predictive Targeting with Neural Networks was developed by the Paterson, Grant & Watson Limited. It is licensed and distributed by Geosoft as an Oasis montaj plus third party extension.
