GeoModeler Feature List – Block Modelling

 

Module/Feature

Foundation Module GeoModeler Module
DrillHole sub-module: Import assays, attributes (categorical or continuous) and geological structures including faults; Desurvey drill holes with choices of 5 desurvey algorithms; Composite and color-code drill holes by lithology, attributes or assays; Create custom DDH attributes as input to subsequent block model interpolations; Create planned drill holes for drilling planning.
Block Modeling sub-module: model vein or seam type deposits with non-axis aligned Mine North and non-axis aligned block models; model large deposits with Octree universe; model dissiminated multi-orebody deposits with multiple block models in a single GeoModeler session; Create block model masks for open-pit deposits; Create and assign user-defined attributes to block models with a visual formula/scripting editor. manually assign rock code to parts of a block model using a solid mesh; includes integrated Block Model Reconciliation.
Implicit Modeling sub-module: Automatically create lithology wireframes; Create real-time grade shells to quickly evaluate what-if scenarios.
3D Variogram Modeling sub-module: Model anisotropy with 3D per-mesh variograms and non-axis aligned ellipsoidal search radii.
Interpolation sub-module: Interpolate block model grades with high performance inverse distance power, anisotropic RBF (radial basis functions), nearest neighbour and multi-threaded Kriging methods (simple, ordinary, ordinary LVM) with or without geological domains. Includes an option to use powerful surface based dynamic anisotropy search strategy for more accurate resource estimates.
Data Analysis & Block Model Validations: Create distribution bar charts and curves for drill hole assays, composites and block models; Validate block models using Histogram Comparison Plot, Q-Q & P-P plots and Swath plots.  
Resource Classification and Resource Reporting: classify and export estimated blocks into measured, indicated and inferred categories for public reporting; Advanced custom report generation with ThreeDify’s formula-based Block Model Report Generator.  
Import DDHs: Imports drill holes in CSV or Microsoft Acess database format (*.mdb)
X-Section sub-module: Create and edit axis-aligned and non-axis aligned cross sections
Wireframing & Surface sub-module: Create DA (dynamic anisotropy) surfaces either manually or automatically from a wireframe; Create wireframes from cross sectional polylines; Create 2.5D gridded surfaces; Create gridded seam solids; Create 2.5D TIN surfaces; Mesh repair tools including hole filling and mesh solidification.
Topography/Geo-Surface sub-module: Create gridded topographical or geological surfaces from drill hole collars, categorical attributes, block models and/or an imported 2.5D mesh.
Import/Export Bock Model and Composites CSV filesImport external block model and/or composite CSV files.Export block model and/or composites csv files.
