Join Gustavo Usero, Geovariances CEO and Datamine VP Geology, to learn how geostatistics and Machine Learning can be used to optimize ore control. It will also be your chance to discover a new Studio RM Pro offering access to Studio RM, Supervisor and Isatis.neo.


The use of geostatistics and machine learning to optimize ore control models in mining operations

October 12 at 10:30 am


In the mining industry, the final destination of each mining block is often determined using geological models called production, grade, and ore-control models. The available information from diamond or reverse circulation drilling often does not provide the required resolution. For this reason, we proposed a hybrid machine learning and geostatistical workflow that integrates available grade data from production blast holes with its operational logs taken during drilling, ensuring the required resolution in the grade control models.

The step of geological logging can be either replaced or enhanced by machine learning models for classifying blast holes into lithologies and hardness classes. An automated workflow then uses all the available data to construct a short-term geological model with estimated rock type, ore grades, and hardness. This workflow was applied in a world-class iron ore mine in Brazil and could reduce ore loss and dilution and improve mining predictability. By extending the life of the mine and reducing waste, the workflow contributes to a more sustainable mining industry.
