Geostatistics and Resource Estimation Short Course at SME Arizona

 SRK enhances modelling skills for evaluating mineral deposits at SME Arizona 2013.Description:

This three-day short course is designed for resource geologists, mine geologists, geoscientists, and engineers who can benefit from enhancing their skills when using and/or constructing resource models for evaluation of mineral deposits.

You will:

- Learn basic geostatistical theory
- Learn practical tools to facilitate decision-making during model construction
- Focus on resource estimation

The goal of the short course is to provide hands-on geostatistical exercises, and participants will provide their own software. Software support for Minesight during the short course will be provided by a representative of Mintec.

Topics include:

- Exploratory data analysis including capping analysis and compositing
- Valogram calculation and modelling
- Selection of estimation methodologies, search ellipses, data restrictions and other associated parameters
- Model validation and sensitivity analysis
- Special topics for mining geostatistics
 


Instructor:

Oy Leuangthong, Ph.D., P.Eng.,
is Principal Geostatistician at SRK Consulting, with more than 10 years of experience in geostatistics for resource characterization and uncertainty assessment.  Previously, she was an Assistant Professor of Mining Engineering at the University of Alberta.  She has taught geostatistics to engineers and geologists, and has consulted on mining and petroleum projects.

Registration fee:

The course registration fee is:
$595 + tax Member
$695 + tax Nonmember
This includes all instruction and course material, lunches, coffee breaks, and 21 Pdh.

No geostatistics background is necessary; however, some experience with resource modelling is recommended.

Participants are required to bring their own laptops and mining software, with which they should be familiar.
