Introduction to Modern Geostatistics

Provides a high level overview of modern geostatistics including workflows for long range resources, drill hole spacing and classification, grade control and geometallurgical modeling. This is suitable to a wide audience including managers, staff from other disciplines who want to know about geostatistics and those that want a refresher.

Exploratory Data Analysis and Outlier Management

Focused on the calculation, interpretation and modeling of variograms for continuous and categorical variables. The practical steps to obtain a geologically realistic and suitable variogram for all required variables are covered. Combining general geological knowledge with sparse drill data for the best possible variogram is reviewed. Change of support will be summarized.

Variogram Inference

Covers exploratory data analysis including multivariate and outlier management, statistical displays and summary statistics for univariate and multivariate continuous and categorical variables. Outlier management by visual, statistical and geostatistical-simulation based methods are presented with examples.

Estimation and Kriging

Fundamental aspects of estimation including validation and setup for different model applications (implicit modeling/visualization, final estimates, interim estimates and probabilistic prediction). The theory will be developed. Attention will be given to practical application, parameter selection and validation of the results. Measures of performance are reviewed.
