Project Description

ore-x

Big data analytics

GeoSynergy came 4th (honorable mention) in the global 2015 ORE-X Innovation challenge.  The goal was to develop an image processing algorithm to classify material in a gold mine as high, medium or low grade ore, or waste. 

The competition recieved over 100 entries from 275 competitors in over 20 countries to the Unearthed Ore-X Challenge. Participants created ore-grade prediction algorithm that could classify material in a gold mine. The algorithms produced were as accurate as geologists at classifying the data provided and were much faster
