Automating Block Modelling with AI

Figure 1: DRIVER automatically calculated anisotropy for Sn (ppm). The primary deposit trend is oriented 240/50 degrees.
Figure 2: The new ordinary kriging interpolation function in DRIVER
Figure 3: Horizontal (z-axis) slice through the 10 m block model interpolated using ordinary kriging and an oblate anisotropy trending 240/50. Note the continuity of high-grade Sn lenses aligned parallel with the anisotropy trend.
Figure 4: View looking NE showing instant wireframe surrounding Ti (pct) blocks that have concentration between 0.6 and 1.4 pct. The outlines of three NW dipping mafic dikes are clearly visible.
