Utilizes big data and AI for efficient mineral exploration
Company Overview
KoBold Metals is transforming the mineral exploration industry by leveraging statistical modeling, big data, and foundational ore-deposit science to enhance the discovery of natural resources essential for electric vehicles. Their unique approach, termed the Epistemology of Exploration, focuses on quantifying and reducing uncertainty in data, making the exploration process more efficient and scientific. Additionally, they've developed TerraShed, a proprietary data system that organizes, standardizes, and quality tests diverse geophysical data, providing a robust information repository for their scientists to drive further discoveries.
