Abstract This paper presents an evaluation study of the use of newly developed clustering tools for on-stream analysis instrument calibration at Western Mining Corporation's Leinster Nickel Operations. In this application, data corresponding to different ore types are present. This causes unsatisfactory instrument calibration using existing methods. The clustering program is able to identify the distinct regions and superior predictive capabilities from the equipment are demonstrated. The use of an on-line expert system (which utilises the clusters as its knowledge base) to enhance analyser performance and identify instrument and plant anomalies is also discussed.
