Powerful, intuitive geological modelling and analysis. Target is the professional's choice for building geological insight through multi-disciplinary geoscience
Target is very intuitive and easy to learn, but the key is how well it integrates surface data and downhole drill data. With the wireframing features now incorporated, it’s also able to meet our 3D geology requirements.jim royall, Exploration manager
Target allows us to do comprehensive compilations by tying in historical data with airborne and ground geophysics and our latest geochemical and drill hole data. It graphically communicates important information to both investors and geologists.Garrett AInsworth, vice president of exploration
We can incorporate GIS data and exploration data – from technical information to topographic data – and view it all in three dimensions within our Geosoft platform. That's a core strength for our advanced exploration.Hans Rasmussen, vice president of exploration

Powerful capabilites for geological modelling and interpretation
Import and organize your project data
Easy-to-use import wizards and highly-efficient Geosoft databases enable you to quickly import and organize all your drilling data, from collars and surveys to lithology, assay results and downhole geophysics. Import and work with more than 50 supported data formats including CAD, GIS, mine planning and modelling.
Conduct ongoing QA and QC
Process large volumes of drillhole data and validate your data, identifying and correcting discrepancies. Access a full set of quality assurance and control tools for your drillhole data. Set coordinate system, create composite database, average values, calculate significant intersections and edit rock codes. Cross reference drillhole data against digital core photos stored online in Coreshed from within Target.
Integrate surface mapping to improve subsurface understanding
Create integrated maps using geology, geophysics, geochemistry, GIS data and satellite imagery to increase your subsurface understanding. Create grids, add contours, geophysics and remote sensing data to enhance your interpretations and guide drilling decisions. Work seamlessly across exploration and GIS environments with built-in ESRI integration and plug-in connectivity with MapInfo.
Create single or multiple sections
Visualize your subsurface data by creating sections, stacked sections, fence diagrams and graphical borehole logs. Quickly create rich, detailed sections to visualize subsurface geology for interpretation and geological models. Incorporate surface data and slice voxels and 3D wireframes or meshes into sections to guide your interpretations. Share results and information more efficiently via visually rich e-maps, 3D PDFs and Map Snapshots that bookmark areas of interest.
View your geology data in 2D and 3D
Build 3D subsurface geological models from digitized interpretations with Target's easy-to-use wireframing interface. Collaborate on 3D modelling projects by sharing interpretations and wireframing results. Create 3D voxel block models and isosurfaces from your drillhole data. Calculate volume and grade estimates based on geological models.
Plan and manage drilling programs of all sizes
Utilize professional quality presentations for daily or seasonal drillhole planning and project management. Plan new drillholes to an existing project, in 2D and 3D, using the planning tools. Re-generate and update plan and section maps using automated tools, to make daily targeting and drill decisions.
Validate and analyze surface geochemical data
Target includes an advanced geochemical analysis and QA/QC toolset designed for the exploration geologist. Effectively import, validate and analyze your surface geochemical data, and perform essential tasks for due-diligence and reporting. Confirm the validity and quality of geochemical data, including assay, standards and location data acquired in surveys. Conduct geochemical analysis using summary statistics, histograms, scattergrams, tri-plots, principle component analysis, probability analysis and correlation plots.
Geosoft Target is also available as an extension for Esri's world-leading ArcGIS platform.
