Gran Colombia Confirms GoldSpot's Machine Learning Targets
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 22, 2019) - GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSXV: SPOT) (the "Company" or "GoldSpot") congratulates Gran Colombia Gold Corp. ("Gran Colombia") on its recent exploration successes. Over the last several months, GoldSpot has been working closely with the exploration team from Gran Colombia to leverage machine learning capabilities for data processing and prospectivity analysis to aid in establishing future drilling targets at Segovia, both near the existing mine areas as well as regional exploration away from the main mines.
Serafino Iacono, executive chairman of Gran Colombia, commented: "Over the last several months, our exploration team has been working closely with the team from GoldSpot Discoveries as they leverage machine-learning capabilities in a data processing and prospectivity analysis to aid in establishing future drilling targets at Segovia, both near the existing mine areas as well as regional exploration away from the main mines. We successfully tested some of our recent drill results against the preliminary findings in GoldSpot's analysis. The favourable overlap of our actual drill results with the preliminary machine-learning models bodes well as we get ready to carry out about 70,000 metres of drilling at Segovia over the next approximately 18 months."
"We commend Gran Colombia on the rigorous work of geologists and its ground-truthing results," said GoldSpot President and CEO Denis Laviolette. "This drilling campaign illustrates how even a seasoned technical team can benefit from adding machine learning to its toolkit, and we are pleased to have contributed to our client's success."
