Great Thinkers Symposium
Resource Estimation in the Face of Multivariate Big Data
PERTH May 9th 2019
Are we ready for 10 Terabytes of data per drillhole?
How do we incorporate Big Data into Resource Models?
The world of technology is rapidly changing the mining landscape. The intensity of information that is being collected from drillholes is rapidly expanding, are our resource estimation processes ready to extract value?
On 9th May we are joined by CSIRO, ECU, HIGF and Gold Road to tackle this challenging topic, and to build a roadmap to ensure we can squeeze value out of new big data methods.
Our keynote address will be delivered by Raimon Tolosana-Delgado visiting expert from Germany, who is one of the world’s leading expert in compositional geostatistics.
John Donaldson, of Gold Road, will explain the implications for geological hypotheses and project value. We will then be joined by Hassan Talebi who is completing his PhD in techniques to improve efficiencies and accuracy in multivariate modelling.
This is an opportunity for our Great Thinkers community to reflect on implications of advanced technology, and what this may mean for improving mineral resource estimation.
