Drill hole spacing and product variability analysis in coal

Learn how a drill hole spacing can be defined from your data using your quality and classification standards to quantitatively defend your classification decisions

Objective

This 1-day course offers a complementary understanding of the use of geostatistics in coal mining to the course Geostatistics Fundamentals for Coal Resource Estimation.

This course is a great introduction to discover how you can gain confidence in your JORC declaration. Learn how a drill hole spacing can be defined from you data using your quality and classification standards to quantitatively defend your classification decisions.
