At Vektore, we work with you to build a consulting package that fits your scope. This may include analytical assistance and problem-solving that improves your workflow and ultimately, your results. We can provide mentoring to your team and support you in the deployment of Applied Structural Economic Geology within your organization. We provide planning, technical leadership, supervision, data acquisition, along with full implementation, integration and analysis, which leads to 3D models of the targets being considered. We can also help in the planning stages so that the solutions and services we deliver will be of the most benefit to you. This option allows you to have Vektore bring in our expert team and our unique resources to your site to acquire and process structural data for you.
Ideal for companies that are pursuing in-house development, we cultivate your technical team with comprehensive knowledge of the structural geology tools and methods that are most significant to mineral exploration and the mining industry today. Training is designed to deliver customized up-skills in applied structural geology and can run from two to five days in business unit or site, depending on the scope. The courses include theoretical and practical structural concepts and tasks aimed at improving your exploration practices.
3D Structural Analysis of District and Targets
In our building of a highly comprehensive 3D architecture of districts and mineral targets, Vektore uses an integrated collection of cutting-edge 3D-based software, including Vektore’s Ore.node™ and our ever expanding specialized modules.
We create sound exploration scenarios for our clients to advance with their district and target development. Target Architecture Modeling™ or TAM™ and TAM-Extrapolation™ have been used successfully in various mineral districts worldwide to focus exploration towards the most likely structural traps. We provide an integrative work with our Alliance.
ore deposit structural analysis
Aiming at a deeper insight into a mineral deposit architecture, Vektore gathers structural information, based on our Structural Vectoring® method, to build 3D models that allow clients to most efficiently understand their mineral bodies and the impact of such understanding on the mine operation and its life-cycle. In association with Ore Deposit Structural Analysis, we identify and characterize high-grade zones within a mineral body, including their distributions, shapes and orientations.
We can provide these services, or supervise and mentor mine geologists who are already working on-site. At the early stages of target exploration, we prefer to use modern pattern recognition methods to help unravel potential directions of oreshoots (Vektore’s Point Cloud Deletion™ method), including the Fry-Patterson Analysis described in Vearncombe & Vearncombe (1999) and Blenkinsop (2004). Some vectors are revealed by point-cloud pattern recognition tools, while others are extracted from core or geological mapping. Either way, these are significant components of the near-mine Structural Vectoring® provided by Vektore. We bring this approach to its full potential by employing various techniques that we have developed, including the vSET™, vSI™, vSBI™ methods and the Target Architecture Modeling™ (TAM). The Mine Site model is further integrated with the TAM-Extrapolation™ to provide basis for regional exploration.
High-grade bodies or ore shoots add significant value to mining operations. Vektore shares with clients its extensive expertise in conducting studies from a structural geology perspective that focus in on domain analysis and characterization, while integrating structure and grade distribution patterns to better understand such vital grade-associated geometries.
We provide short courses on structural economic geology, bringing the field and core shack into the meeting room. From basic principles to practical exercises, the audience is exposed to a new core logging technique that focuses on identifying and extracting mineralization-related structural features which can can be efficiently used as predictive tools to direct drilling towards mineral bodies.
