Will GeoLog Assist Be Able to Replace the Logging Geologist?

GeoLog Assist is a software solution for the rapid assessment of key indicators when describing photos of core, drilling chips, thin sections, and outcrops at ore deposits. The software will help the logging geologist solve several tasks related to the routine processes of estimating the proportion of vein material in core and mineral phases in drilling chips, classifying tectonites and assessing the degree of fracturing, as well as the granulometric characteristics of particles of loose stone material. Algorithms based on neural networks make it possible to quickly and accurately detect and quantify these indicators in images.

One of the key tasks of GeoLog Assist is to help the logging geologist through quality control and refinement of the results of his work. The use of GeoLog Assist will significantly reduce the time spent on mapping veins and stockworks, accurately identify areas with different concentrations of sulfides and will allow you to quickly log tectonic faults. Optimized recognition algorithms allow you to obtain quantitative evaluation results in minutes, even on medium-performance laptops, which allows you to use the software in the field without having to access the global network. Numerical and graphical results can be easily imported into modern GIS/CAD and used to build geological, structural, geotechnical and resource models.

The report highlights examples of the use of GeoLog Assist at the exploration stage of several quartz-vein gold deposits. The advantages of using the software in the construction of a geological model are clearly demonstrated. A comparison is carried out with the results of the assessment of the above indicators performed by a logging geologist.
