Soil Sampling

Samples are taken approx. 1 foot below the soil surface and are less than 1 cm3

DNA Analysis

Bacterial DNA is extracted, producing tagged 16S rDNA, translated to bacterial species

Machine Learning

Using our existing database with known samples a correlation model is built

Prospect Mapping

A prediction map is made which reduces drilling risks and only targets profitable sites
