DiscoverMine Radio podcast – Episode 24: Conditional simulation and uncertainty in the ore body by David BarryPosted on
David Barry, Senior Geostatistician and a Geovariances’ Perth-based consultant, has been invited by DiscoverMine Radio, to explain about conditional simulation as one of the method used in the mining operation to better estimate the ore body. Listen to the recording and learn what are conditional simulations, how they differ from classic mining geostatistics techniques.
Uncertainty in the ore volume is a big part of the risk in a mining project. That is why in this episode DiscoverMine Radio interviewed David Barry, senior geostatistician currently working for Geovariances, to explain about conditional simulation as one of the method used in the mining operation to better estimate the ore body.
(02:10) About kriging, estimation, and simulation;
(06:40) The differences in between geostatistic and conventional simulation;
(09:30) Why conditional simulations are required to model ore body?;
(13:20) Successful stories about ore body simulations;
(17:30) How the simulation results are optimized;
(23:50) Alternative methods to deal with unbalance drill holes distribution.
