Maura Kolb is more familiar with analyzing rock samples than computer code, but as exploration manager at Goldcorp's Red Lake gold mine, she now finds herself in charge of an innovative approach to exploration that involves both.
The project, in partnership with IBM, uses IBM's Watson artificial intelligence platform to identify exploration targets at the Ontario mine. Since the project was launched in March 2017 at the Disrupt Mining event at PDAC, Goldcorp says the time it takes to process survey data has fallen by 97 per cent.

The head of a White River-area gold mine isn't pleased that the inaugural start of production is being delayed until year's end while the company waits on the province for the last of its operating permits.
Back in May, Harte Gold was targeting July as the beginning of production at its Sugar Zone underground gold mine, 25 kilometres north of White River.
The start date is now being pushed to the fourth quarter of this year.

CN Rail said it will continue to track the clean-up of the derailment site where a CN oil train went off the tracks and burned in the winter of 2015.
The promise is part of a four-page report entitled CN Environmental Update Spring/Summer 2018 Progress Report. CN said it plans to continue sampling water and soil and reporting their findings to government regulators such as the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change.
Scientists have found that 4.02 billion year old silica-rich felsic rocks from the Acasta River, Canada — the oldest rock formation known on Earth — probably formed at high temperatures and at a surprisingly shallow depth of the planet's nascent crust. The high temperatures needed to melt the shallow crust were likely caused by a meteorite bombardment around half a billion years after the planet formed.
The use of lithium-ion batteries by automakers is expected grow seven-fold by 2025, helped mainly by their dropping costs as well as by subsidies and incentives in many countries, particularly in China, to encourage sales of electric vehicles.
According to Will Adams, Metal Bulletin's Head of Research for the battery materials, base metals and precious metals markets, demand for lithium-ion batteries will soar to 650 GWh by 2025, from only 70 GWh last year.
