Minerva Announces Commercial DRIVER Contract with Canadian Intermediate Miner

September 30, 2020, 07:00 ET

Vancouver, BC – Minerva Intelligence Inc. (TSXV:MVAI) (“Minerva” or the “Company”), an artificial intelligence company focused on knowledge engineering, is pleased to announce the signing of a contract with a Canadian intermediate mining company. The new contract is for Minerva’s new DRIVER product, which provides deep insights into previously untapped geometallurgical data. 

Minerva can deliver such insights by using their DRIVER software to identify multi-element zones in drilling data which are too time consuming and complicated to identify by conventional means. DRIVER then can associate these zones with relevant lithologies and structures and express this knowledge of identified exploration vectors extracted from the client’s exploration data in a form that enables computer reasoning.

Minerva’s cognitive reasoning platform then extends its AI work by comparing the identified vectors to hundreds of past and present mines throughout the world, short-listing those most similar to the client’s targets, which can then serve as reliable, explainable models upon which geologists can build their drilling strategies.

“Our work on this project reaffirms the value of Minerva’s AI technology for the mining and exploration sectors,” said Scott Tillman, Chief Executive Officer of Minerva Intelligence. “We are gratified that companies are embracing DRIVER as a critical new tool in their toolbox, and we look forward to delivering valuable insights into their drilling data.”

Mr. Tillman continued, “The continued validation of our software in the field of mineral extraction is proving the value of our cognitive AI technology both in the exploration process and with risk analysis. This new contract should further cement Minerva’s reputation as a cutting-edge solutions provider in these domains.”More information on Minerva’s DRIVER application can be found at https://minervaintelligence.com/DRIVER.
