Geostatistical Resource Estimation
 
School of Resources and Environmental Engineering Wuhan University of Science and Technology
 
Course syllabus
This course covers various important topics in mineral resource estimation,     with particular focus on geostatistics, including:  traditional  estimation  methods; data composition; variogram definition,  calculation  and  interpretation; kriging and kriging variances; orebody and block modelling; grade-tonnage curve, selection and recoverability issues; introduction to advanced geostatistical techniques; JORC code. A brief introduction to the Australian mining industry will also be presented.
 
Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
· Apply basic geostatistics to characterise and model spatial variability,
· Interpret models of spatial variability in the context of mineral resource estimation,
· Understand how to estimate values of spatial variables together with the variance of the error associated with such estimates,
· Perform orebody modelling and block modelling, and
· Understand how to report resources and reserve using the JORC code.
 
Learning resources
The following resources will be made available to students:
· Course notes,
· PowerPoint slides, and
· Software: Geostatistics for Windows, V3
