Stratigraphic interpretation and modelling

We provide the knowledge and tools for the construction of 3D models and interpretation of complete geological frameworks, supported and cross-validated by multiple data sets.

We offer solutions to address the need to include complex fault networks, vertical repeats, overturned folding, and additional 3D geometries into structural models. Our team has expertise in all aspects of resource modelling, including burden characterization, which is crucial to improve mine design and support blasting decisions; all of which leads to substantial operational cost savings and increased profitability. With years of experience carrying out complex geological modelling projects, we are specialists in providing our clients with innovative interpretation and modelling results. We have called upon that experience and expertise to develop proofs of concept, as well as implement systems, establish workflows, and set up tools specific to the coal industry.
Our team works across the complete spectrum of geophysical techniques. We provide analytical and interpretational value in ore body detectability analysis, survey design, geologically-constrained inversion, 3D geological modelling, integrated interpretation, drillhole targeting, contract geophysical research, and geophysical software development.

A single platform for unifying data

We use the best technology to offer the repeatability and speed advantages of implicit modelling, resulting in a modelling environment that allows any fault complexity and representation. Our solution provides the simplicity of 2D grid modelling with the geological complexity of 3D volumetric surface modelling. It also facilitates rapid updates of models with newly acquired data.

Extracting additional value from data with machine learning

Applying machine learning to large volumes of wireline data, Mira Geoscience has developed a method for semi-automatic lithofacies classification. Using a data-driven approach, standardized geological logs can be extracted directly from borehole geophysical logs. Through levelling and analysis of commonly collected wireline parameters, our team has been able to characterize rock types and interpolate rock properties into the 3D structural framework using industry-standard geostatistical tools.

Data sets we work with

Mira Geoscience ensures fast, intuitive, and accurate 3D earth models, regardless of your data types. We work with geological, geophysical, geochemical, and geotechnical data from different mining industry formats: ArcGIS, MapInfo, AutoCAD, GOCAD/SKUA, Gemcom, Surpac, CAE Studio, Vulcan, Geosoft, Leapfrog, ER Mapper, ioGAS, UBC-GIF, VPmg, Profile Analyst, Maxwell, and others.
