MFT is a three step process

I’m still talking about a #mineralfindertechnology (MFT) that has the potential to revolutionise the exploration phase of mining. This technology is capable of reducing the time taken by more than 80%, the cost by more than 80%, and significantly increase the success rates. This is a game-changer for mining exploration.

Previously I talked about the science behind it. Today I’ll discuss the process at a high level.

MFT helps resource companies doing exploration to verify the minimum number of points to be drilled with precision.

MFT is a three step process.

3 phases of MFT

MFT uses a mix of deep blue through ultra-violet wavelength satellite spectroscopy, short pulse electromagnetic fields, vertical electro-resonance, AI and manual data interpretation to map ore bodies, up to 10 km deep with accuracy averaging 94%.

Phase 1 involves analysis of remote sensory data. MFT takes satellite spectroscopy data and processes it to identify areas of subsurface mineralisation and the concentration of resources in those areas.

Phase 2 involves field sensing at greater levels of precision of the areas of most interest identified in Phase 1. Phase 2 involves two steps.

The first step uses FSPEF (typically done from air, land, or water vehicles) to develop more accurate 'top view' maps of the sub-soil mineralisation and grades. The second step employs VERS to develop 'side view' maps of the depth and thickness of the intervals (veins) and discontinuities in the minerals of interest.

All this data in analysed with neural net and AI software to produce a final output which is the combined spectrographic, FSPEF and VERS data in accurate 3-dimensional maps of the below surface deposits, assessment of the mineralisation grade, volume, and value. The maps are used to minimise the subsequent drilling required to certify an asset.
