DEVELOPMENT OF FUSION TECHNOLOGY FOR EXPLORATION DATA BASED ON A 3D GEOLOGICAL MODELING PLATFORM
Detailed 3D geological models were developed using a 3D geological modeling platform based on mine exploration data from drilling investigations, surface geologic/geophysical and ore deposit surveys, and airborne and unmanned reconnaissance surveys conducted for domestic ore deposits (Ti-bearing iron, skarn, porphyry copper, and chromium deposits). Together with other resource-rich countries we consistently carry out exploration activities and maintain international cooperation to secure promising prospects. In addition, 3D technology for estimating potential ore deposits has been developed using the data obtained from mine exploration activities.
