AI / ML Discriminant Predictive Targeting®

DPT® follows a logical process of:

  • Human data collection and cleaning
  • Machine assisted optimisation and prediction
  • Human analysis and DECISION making
Discriminant Predictive Targeting® uses the best of human modern exploration teamed with the capacity of AI and Machine Learning technologies.


  • SensOre Technology Platform

    • Discriminant functionality to predict size, footprint, grade and depth with focus on economic parameters – new mines not resources
    • Appropriate ML algorithms specifically selected then applied to fundamental data and data derivatives, not only images
    • +25 individual ML algorithms used from all ML classes: Supervised, Semi-supervised, Unsupervised, Reinforcement
    • Specific correlations between training deposits and each cell utilising all layers in data cube
    • Utilises standard minimum cell size 400 x 400m
    • Use of ore deposit extended geochemical data for predicting and vectoring endowment characteristics. Proprietary ML tools AGLADS® and iFERTILE
  • SensOre Data Cube

    • SensOre Data cube – 24 billion data points (data + derivatives) in +2,500 layers. All used for deposit data layer correlations and prediction
    • Unique data cube seamlessly expanding by combining public research and adding proprietary data
    • Vast Western Australia industry legacy data acquired, extracted, cleaned and integrated
      • +6.5 million surface samples
      • +250 million drill hole samples



  • AGLADS® is a proprietary application of Machine Learning used in detection of alteration and primary geochemical dispersion as an exploration tool for Archaean Gold Lode Systems.

    The tool specifically addresses the problems associated with:
    • determining characteristic geochemical signatures of the dispersion haloes enveloping lode-gold deposits
    • quantifying the size of a primary dispersion halo
    • evaluating and developing vectors to ore
    • assessing current geochemical methods and developing new alteration-based exploration criteria for Archaean lode-gold deposits
    The tool uses typical, mineral assemblage-based alteration sequences. AGLADS® can be used to quantitatively evaluate areas affected by alteration during the formation of lode-gold deposits, enlarge exploration targets and assist with vectoring to economic ore.
    The system requires the input of high-quality, multi-element assay data from exploration & evaluation drilling and uses analytical data from many deposits to “Train-On” in various metamorphic environments and various Archaean greenstone sequence lithologies. Outputs includes predictions of likely host rock type and whether a drill intersection represents Ore, Proximal-To-Ore, Distal-To-Ore or Host lithology.
