AbstractLogistic regression analysis and classification methods using decision tree analysis were used to generate two quantitative mineral potential maps for the Lake Ambrose area (NTS 12A/10) of central Newfoundland. The response variable consisted of 47 surface mineral occurrences plus 49 randomly selected sites representing nonmineral occurrences. Mineral deposit models and regional exploration methods were used to choose a set of predictors consisting of geology, fault proximity, till and lake sediment geochemistry, and surficial geology. A spatial weighting function predictor was developed to account for the clustering of the mineral occurrences.
