Recovery of Stratigraphic Data from Drillhole Databases

Jun 18, 2021

The MinEx CRC has funded a new 3-year project to recover stratigraphic information from legacy geological survey drillhole databases. Legacy and new drillhole data are a key constraints for geological understanding and subsequent 3D prediction. Company databases held by Australian Geological Survey Organisations (GSOs) often contain complexly coded lithological information, but limited stratigraphic data. This project will develop Open Source algorithms automating the extraction of stratigraphic data. Dr Vitaliy Ogarko will be joining the CET from his current position working on the Square Kilometre Array at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research.
