A radical approach to exploration

 

Welcome

You have reached BW Mining, specialists in data mining and mineral exploration.

We provide a unique consulting service to the mineral industry using modern artificial intelligence techniques to integrate multidisciplinary exploration data sets.

Our resources are best aimed at exploration teams, districts and projects that are most likely to be successful and yield producing mines. BWM is flexible, but our preferred business plan is to provide our services at low entry cost, with true rewards coming only with our clients’ success.

Our process

Mineral exploration is becoming awash with data. This results from an explosion in new data acquisition techniques being applied in geology, geophysics, geochemistry and remote sensing. The challenge facing the industry today is to make sense of all these data. New techniques such as data visualization and machine learning are emerging to meet this challenge.

We have developed a new process based on neural networks that is completely objective and takes account of all the available data. We use many hundreds of inputs to represent the exploration data properly. The process is first trained on data in the vicinity of known economic deposits. It is then systematically applied to the rest of the data to search out matching patterns that could indicate a concealed deposit.

The output of the BWM process is a sharply focused target map. The information from multiple data layers is distilled into a single favorability map that assigns a numerical probability of success to each point in the area. Typically, most of the area can be ruled out as unfavorable. Full attention can then be given to the really favorable ground.

 
 
Neural Networks   Artificial neural networks are modern statistical data mining tools. They can be used to model complex, non-linear relationships between inputs and outputs or to find patterns in large data sets. Dependable results require specialized software, knowledge and experience.

Case studies


Walker Lane

The Walker Lane shear zone straddles the border between Nevada and California and has a long history of exploration and mining, dating back to the discovery of the famous Comstock Lode in the late 1850s. The Walker Lane is notable for its numerous occurrences of volcanic-hosted epithermal gold and silver deposits.


Porcupine Camp

The Porcupine Gold Camp in Eastern Canada is one of the most prolific gold mining districts in North America, with past production exceeding 60 million ounces of gold. Mining and exploration have been going on in this district since gold was first discovered near Timmins in 1907.


Lachlan Fold Belt

New South Wales has a history of exploration going back over 150 years. The announcement of a discovery near Bathurst in 1851 sparked a gold rush, and many other discoveries were made. None of these, however, was on a grand scale until rich gold-copper deposits were found at Cadia in 1992.
