• consultation system to assist geologists working in mineral exploration• developed by Hart and Duda of SRI International• attempts to represent the knowledge and reasoning processes of experts in the geological domain• intended user is an exploration geologist in the early stages of investigating a possible drilling site
PROSPECTOR: Operational details
Characterisitics of a particular 'prospect'
(exploration site)
volunteered by expert
(e.g.geologic setting, structural controls, and kinds of rocks minerals, andalteration products present or suspected)
PROSPECTOR compares observations with stored models of ore depositsPROSPECTOR notes similarities, differences and missinginformation(POSPECTOR asks for additional information if neccessary)

PROSPECTOR assesses the mineral potential of the prospectPROSPECTOR 
• system has been kept domain independent• it matches data from a site against models describing regional and local characteristics favourable for specific ore deposits• the input data are assumed to be incomplete and uncertain
