Hear what people are saying.
I have read your report on the Porcupine Camp in Timmins with great interest and satisfaction. I am impressed that your data mining process not only identifies areas of interest but can rate the data sets’ contribution to the prospectivity analysis. I am very satisfied with this project and I hope we do more studies of this type.
Your neural network targeting in the Walker Lane, Nevada, led us to discover new mineral occurrences in this mature exploration district. The process allowed our company, with little Great Basin experience, to operate with considerable advantage over the competition. I predict this process will become standard industry practice, as airborne geophysics became in the 70’s.
I consider the technical team of Barnett and Williams to be the essential component of an effective neural network exercise. They bring together a rare combination of qualities—mathematical rigor, an understanding of economic geology and geophysical theory, and years of practical exploration experience—that is indispensable to a successful neural network analysis. I can’t imagine attempting this type of analysis with any other group.
