Our geochemical experts interpret analytical data – such as multielement geochemistry and fire assays, mineralogical data, leach well and acid base accounting data, and hyperspectral data – from a variety of geological sources, including drill core, stream sediments (and their associated catchment basins), soil or till samples, rock chips and other mineral samples. We use this data to generate robust interpretations that enhance the understanding of the geological environment and help vector towards alteration and mineralization.
GoldSpot geochemists routinely analyze and interpret multivariate data to categorize different rock types, quantify alteration, and vector towards mineralization. These interpretations can also feed into mineral resource estimations. This expertise allows us to create detailed 3D models of geology and alteration, and also create geometallurgical domains to delineate groups of rocks with varying physical parameters to improve throughput at the mill.
Using the GoldSpot suite of proprietary machine learning technologies to aid in the translation of geochemical interpretations to maps and models, we predict areas associated with mineralization based on their chemical fingerprints and pathfinder element associations.
Our geochemists can also optimize laboratory methods, field sampling programs, sampling methodologies, and standard operating procedures. As leading experts in the field of geochemical tools and field-based instruments, our team can also assist by recommending fit-for-purpose technologies that will help you rapidly collect high quality geochemical data on your own project.
