How confident are you in your data quality when it comes time for EOM reporting?
Would you build a house without following a plan? Then why would you mine a resource without following the plan?
We have seen some AMAZING excel spreadsheets in our travels with some equally amazing macros providing the basis for reconciliation reporting in our industry. But what happens when the owner leaves, the macros break or you simply have a complex orebody or a long mine life?
Every block estimated in a model is independent of every other block estimate and each block should be estimated with the best possible configuration of samples and the most reasonable topcut. Snowden’s Supervisor software provides tools that ensure that each block is estimated with the best possible combination of parameters (LKNO) as well as the most reasonable LOCAL topcut (local transition topcut model).
In this version we have expanded the “going local” approach to optimising estimation which was introduced in v8.11 through LKNO and provided a unique solution that allows you to examine the effect of topcutting local samples on a per block basis.
Local Kriging Neighbourhood Optimisation (LKNO) and Local Top-cutting are both included in the new release of Supervisor (v8.11),
Local Kriging Neighbourhood Optimisation (LKNO) is an alternative approach to optimising estimation parameters.
