The company said AI experts with Windfall Geotek will use their advanced Computer Aided Resource Detection System (CARDS) to mark targets which will be evaluated and explored using traditional exploration techniques in upcoming programs.
Gatling's Larder Gold project occupies 3,370 hectares along the Cadillac Larder Lake Break, a prolific structural gold trend. The property hosts three high-grade deposits along the main break, as well as two additional, underexplored gold trends, recently discovered 6 kilometers north.
The company said AI uses pattern recognition and machine learning to make predictions based on compiled datasets. The Larder project benefits from a vast database of recent and historical data, including 2,000 drill holes, 90,000 assays, 1,000 surface rock samples, 500 soil samples, as well as geophysics, Lidar and bedrock geology.
“The area to be analyzed has numerous deposits including, but not limited to, Agnico Eagle's Upper Beaver, Kerr Addison, Mistango River Resources' Omega Mine and Gatling's 3 high-grade gold deposits: Fernland, Cheminis and Bear,” Gatling said in a statement.
“These known gold deposits will be instrumental in guiding the AI, with the goal of highlighting areas on Larder that may be geologically similar to other deposits in the district.”
