Ore Reserve Analysis and Geostatistics

This course introduces conventional and geostatistical methods for construction of orebody models. Topics include principles of geostatistics, theory of spatially correlated random variables, variance and co-variances and their application on the evaluation of mineral resources, ore reserve estimation, strategic exploration and production planning. Case studies from the mining industry are presented. Prerequisite: GEOL 1006 and STAT 2246. (lec 3 lab 2) cr3
