Target Fundamentals with Geochemistry Training CourseThis course will provide you with the fundamental skills to process, visualize and interpret surface and drillhole data within Target, as well as introduce you to additional workflows for processing and analyzing geochemical data.

Participants will learn to use key surface mapping tools, including working with databases, assigning projection information, and creating and displaying gridded data. Drillhole data management tools for importing collar, survey, from-to, and point data and the QA/QC of drillhole data are also covered.

The course also focuses on handling drillhole data to quickly and easily create plan maps, section maps, fence diagrams, strip logs and 3D maps. Working with prepared drillhole projects, participants will explore additional topics for managing, mapping and modelling drillhole projects.
