Case Studies
Here are some of the diverse projects that OreFox has worked on.
  • Mt Chalmers for Traprock Mining Limited
  • Traprock Mining Limited wanted the extensive data for the Mt Chalmers Copper gold mine analysed using the OreFox Target AI & Data Mining AI. OreFox also provided a digitising service for a large amount of data in old reports.

  • Gympie Gold field for Nash Mining
  • Nash Mining is looking to re-open the Gympie gold mine, and wanted the OreFox Prospector AI system to find new areas of gold mineralization the area, and to use the Target AI to define new drill targets in the narrow vein systems.
  • Historical Gold mine for GoldStrike Mining
  • GoldStrike Mining has a small high grade historical gold mine under exploration, that has had limited drilling. The OreFox & Target AI we able to find new areas of interest and uncover a previously unknown shear zone hosted gold system.
  • Project Generation for Oz Minerals Limited
  • The OreFox technology, Prospector AI, generated 108 targets for exploration using its proprietary machine and deep learning algorithms. Of these targets, 69 were found to have previously been drilled. These drilled targets were further examined, and all downgraded. The Hunter AI system was then implemented to refine the remaining targets down to 10. These top 10 targets can be found in Table 1. Three targets of significant note are Nick’s Rings, Amy’s Target and OreFox Pipe.
  • Project Generation for Oz Minerals Limited
  • Finding high pressure differentials at LNG wells
  • When gas is extracted from the ground by the well, water is also extracted. Water can get into the gas gathering network which slows (constrains) the flow of gas – impacting production, and costing an estimated $20 million a year for Origin Energy. OreFox built an integrated, multi-platform solution which leverages existing Origin systems to optimize gas production.

  • Predicting zinc recovery at McArthur River Mine
  • Glencore’s McArthur River Mine (MRM) is a world-class zinc-lead mine with a long future ahead of it, Glencore's aim is to develop optimisation algorithms for the processing facility. This is a work in progress by OreFox for the implementation of an optimisation algorithm. This is an Online challenge hosted by Unearthed Solutions.

Super deposit tests

  • BHP Olympic Dam IOCG mine
  • Olympic Dam was an inspiration for building the Prospector AI, being a deep undercover greenfield target. OreFox Prospector AI was able to find the Olympic Dam deposit and highlight two areas inside the orebody.

  • KCGM Superpit gold mine
  • OreFox ran a test on the KCGM Superpit gold mine, and gained valuable new information on how the Prospector AI works. Newmont Minings Boddington Gold mine and AngloGold Ashanti's Tropicana mine were also tested.
