John Cooper, Advisory Board Member, Black Tusk Resources
In late 2018, Black Tusk set out to investigate modernizing our current techniques and methods for traditional mineral exploration. Although some of these technologies are fairly new applications, artificial intelligence and machine learning can help mining companies to find minerals to extract, a critical component of any smart operation. Researching the possibility to review all the geological info available to find better drill locations is very exciting. We are also looking at blockchain technologies to track exploratory extractions from our properties. Bringing new technologies to an old game.
