DiscoverMine Radio podcast – Episode 24: Conditional simulation and uncertainty in the ore body by David Barry
David Barry, Senior Geostatistician and a Geovariances’ Perth-based consultant, has been invited by DiscoverMine Radio to explain conditional simulation as one method used in the mining operation to better estimate the ore body. Listen to the recording and learn what conditional simulations are, how they differ from classic mining geostatistics techniques.
What are recoverable resources? (2/2)
David Barry, Senior Geostatistician and a Geovariances’ Perth-based consultant, has been invited by Optiro, a resource consulting group, to participate in a podcast about recoverable resource estimation. Listen to this 2nd recording and learn more about the alternatives to uniform conditioning, such as MIK and conditional simulations, and their pros and cons.
What are recoverable resources? (1/2)
David Barry, Senior Geostatistician and a Geovariances’ Perth-based consultant, has been invited by Optiro, a resource consulting group, to participate in a podcast about recoverable resource estimation. Listen to the recording and learn what are recoverable resources, how they differ from reserves, and what are the main techniques to compute them. The focus in on Uniform Conditioning. Other possible techniques will be presented in a further podcast.
The importance of being … consistent
The search for productivity improvements is pervasive in the mining industry and MRE software are no strangers to the quest for speed seen in all operational processes. But that quest, whilst valid and sound, should not come at the price of quality, optimality or consistency in the manner information is treated.
Can you afford to bypass geostatistics for the sake of productivity?
Anyone involved with today’s mining industry understands that the sector is facing very tough challenges. And it is under enormous pressure from due cost control and budgetary management constraints that innovation and ingenuity must still find their way to propose new ways of tackling traditional issues. Mineral Resource Estimation (MRE) is no stranger to that conundrum and their practitioners all know the multi facets of the game: integrate more and more data, boost productivity, and come up with an answer fast and at the same time enriched with an assessment of the uncertainty that can be attached to that answer. All of that in a fraction of the time they used to have at their disposal and less resources to double check…
