Exploration targets identified

  • A total of 65,756 hexagons covering an area of 5,844,950km2 across Brazil have been compared to 54 deposit models in this study, involving more than 5 million comparisons using the MineMatch® artificial intelligence system.
  • Each target is presented as a 50km2 hexagon.
  • Target maps show the top 20,000 hexagon targets for each deposit model. 
  • Each hexagon target has been attributed with geology, tectonic terrane, structure, and mineral data of any layers below it. 
 

Target maps for 54 different deposit-types are published on this site, each showing from 10’s to 100’s of locations in which there is evidence for the existence of a mineral deposit. 

Each target is supplemented by three reports:

  • A ranking of the target against the 80 different deposit-types

  • A comparison of the target with the deposit-type it matches best

  • A comparison of the target with the deposit-type it matches second-best
