Goldcorp and IBM Develop New AI Technology
Solution to Improve Predictability for Gold Mineralization
First of a kind 'IBM
Exploration with Watson' solution launches in Canada
VANCOUVER, Nov. 26, 2018 /CNW/ - GOLDCORP INC.
(TSX:G, NYSE:GG) ("Goldcorp") IBM (NYSE:IBM) ("IBM") Goldcorp and IBM Canada have co-authored an innovative
first of a kind technology product: IBM Exploration with Watson will improve predictability for gold mineralization. The solution
applies artificial intelligence to predict the potential for gold mineralization and uses powerful search and query capabilities
across a range of exploration datasets.
"The potential to radically accelerate
exploration target identification combined with significantly improved hit rates on economic mineralization has the potential to
drive a step-change in the pace of value growth in the industry," said Todd White, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating
Developed using data from Goldcorp's Red Lake
Gold Mines in northern Ontario, IBM Exploration with Watson leverages spatial analytics, machine learning and predictive models,
helping explorers locate key information and develop geological extrapolations in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional
"Applying the power of IBM Watson to these
unique challenges differentiates us in the natural resources industry," said Mark Fawcett, Partner with IBM Canada. "We
are using accelerated computing power for complex geospatial queries that can harmonize geological data from an entire site on
a single platform. This is the first time this solution has been ever used, which makes this project all the more significant."
At Red Lake, IBM Exploration with Watson provided
independent support to drill targets planned by geologists via traditional methods and proposed new targets which were subsequently
verified. Drilling of some of these new targets is ongoing, with the first target yielding the predicted mineralization at the
"Timelines are short in mining and exploration.
I am excited to see the improvements we can make with the data platform and gold mineralization predictions," said Maura Kolb,
Goldcorp's Exploration Manager at Red Lake Gold Mines. "These tools can help us view data in totally new ways. We have already
begun to test the Watson targets from the predictive model through drilling, and results have been impressive so far."
The IBM Watson initiative recently earned Goldcorp
a prestigious Ingenious Award in the large private sector category from the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC).
The ITAC award for Goldcorp's Cognitive Journey recognizes excellence in the use of information and communications technology by
organizations to solve problems, improve performance, introduce new services, and grow business.
Goldcorp will put the new technology to work
on additional targets in 2019.
