Satellite imagery linked to artificial intelligence (AI) have proven to be important tools in support of mineral exploration projects. AI allows the interpretation of wavelengths that cannot be seen by the human eye; therefore, near-infrared, short wave infrared, and thermal infrared can be used to identify the difference in structural features of the earth's surface.
Furthermore, multispectral imaging and thematic mapping allow researchers to collect reflection data and absorption properties of soils, rock, and vegetation. This data is leveraged to interpret surface lithologies, identify clays, oxides, and soil types from satellite imagery.
