Metal Earth M.Sc. in Exploration Geochemistry and Mineral Prospectivity

Project start: Fall 2018/Winter 2019

Metal Earth is seeking a motivated MSc student with GIS and geospatial analysis experience, to begin data analytics work in the fall of 2018 or winter 2019. A key objective of the Data Analytics component of the Metal Earth project is to develop data processing workflows for information fusion and integration, to propose alternative targeting solutions based on machine learning and statistical modeling of available multidisciplinary data. This MSc project fulfills the need for advanced geochemical data processing of available lake sediment data, as part of a regional scale mineral prospectivity study focused on the eastern termination of the Superior province.
