The Kevitsa Ni-Cu-PGE disseminated sulphide deposit is hosted by the Kevitsa mafic to ultramafic intrusion, located within the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt in northern Finland. A 3D seismic reflection survey was conducted in Kevitsa in 2010 for mine planning and deep mineral exploration purposes. Within the Kevitsa resource area, the 3D seismic data are characterized by laterally continuous reflections. Here we use data mining, namely Self-Organizing Map (SOM), analysis to better understand the possible causes of reflectivity within the Kevitsa intrusion. The results show that the mineralized zones within the intrusion could be potential causes of reflectivity, and hence could set potential exploration targets in the area.
