The system can generate exploration targets for green and brownfields datasets

Minerva said the software contains a suite of cognitive AI applications for the mining and exploration fields.

Features include the ability to harmonise a company's data sets and align them to a chosen standard, and the system can provide customised tagging and search capabilities for an organisation's geological documents.

Terra can also use AI to identify multi-element zones in drilling data which are too time-consuming and complicated to identify by conventional means, and generate exploration targets for green and brownfields datasets through a cognitive advice system.

"Allinno is excited to be bringing Minerva's artificial intelligence technology to Australia and New Zealand," said Greg Macpherson, director of innovation and delivery at Allinno. "The ground-breaking AI software and services offered by Minerva represent a fundamental change for the economic geology field as exploration companies seek ways to more efficiently analyze data.

"We see this agreement as a critical component of our go-to-market strategy," said Scott Tillman, chief executive of Minerva Intelligence. "Australia and New Zealand are one of the largest mining territories in the world, so our partnership with Allinno to offer our solutions in those regions represents a natural next step for Minerva in the global commercialization of our TERRA Mining AI Suite."
