Windfall Geotek president and CEO Michel Fontaine said: “The AI approach combines geological expertise, all available terrane and geophysical data and uses proven algorithms to predict the location of highly ranked exploration targets.

“It validates the target areas where QPM is currently performing a 25,000m drilling campaign.”

The gold mine lies within the central part of the Superior Geological Province. It is 23km along the contact between sediments and volcanics between La Grande and Opinaca sub-provinces.
