Prediction of Mineral Deposits in South Australia Using Big Data Analytics
We develop an innovative method, Basemap Method, for effectively organising and processing massive geological datasets, and elucidate how it is coupled with the classic mineral exploration algorithm, Random Forest, for predicting multiple mineral deposits in South Australia. By sophistically tuning the algorithm, we are able to predict the distribution of three important types of minerals, copper, iron and gold, across South Australia to a resolution of 1km.
