PDAC 2016: A busy congress!

By IOS team, March 6, 2016

As for the last 22 years, IOS will attend PDAC convention, from Monday, March 7th to Wednesday the 9th, with a little plus! IOS invites you to three activities:

1. Within the Exploration insights session, Réjean Girard will give a talk about "Geochemical exploration above clay belts: How to make it work!" This talk will review how the latest protocols for soil geochemistry developed by IOS team enabled the detection of the signature of mineralization buried underneath 20-60 meters of poorly drained overburden material such as Northern Abitibi. The talk will present the procedure in fair details, although case studies will not be presented, many of them being currently drill tested. The talk is held on Tuesday. March 8th at 9:35 am in room 713, open to all pass types. http://www.pdac.ca/convention/programming/exploration-insights


2. Within the Student Colloquium sponsored by SEG Éric Larouche, a young engineer from IOS, and his co-authors will present a poster on: "Hypercube: New tool for the study of the mineral potential". The poster will be on display in the Royal York ballroom, between noon and 7:00 PM on Monday, March 7th.

3. During the congress, IOS and BearingPoint team will offer private presentation on the geological applications of Hypercube® rare event prediction software. This artificial intelligence software enable deciphering of subtle relations between complex data (phenomenon) and rare events (such as mineralization), in order to enables prediction of such event form large datasets. This binary classifier can analyze discrete (text) as well as continuous (numbers) values from vast incomplete or asymmetrical datasets. Examples dealing with geochemistry, mineralogy and geological mapping can be reviewed, while drilling, metallurgical processes, health and safety as well as financial applications can be discussed. Please, contact Mr. Clément Dombrowski (email: [email protected] or office: 1-800-307-4498) to organize a private presentation or to join a group.


According to tradition, an IOS representative will be present permanently at the Québec government booth.

Bon congrès!
