SGS professionals perform geostatistical analysis and block modeling using the data generated through orebody modeling. Our geological professionals act as your Qualified Person (QP) or Competent Person (CP) and can prepare reports that are NI 43-101 and JORC compliant.
Generally, the first step is to produce a set of drill-hole sections from the drill-hole database. These sections are then used to verify the project data and then to establish interpreted geological limits for various ore and rock types. The next step is to divide those geological zones into blocks and estimate the tonnage and grades of each block. The shape of blocks and the estimation methods vary according to the specific requirements of your project.
The information gained from geostatistical analysis is the base data for ore resource calculation and grade control. The analysis begins with our examination of the data produced by orebody modeling. We then:
The resulting information can be used to:
