Abstract

Of particular importance to the geologic community is the ability of computers to calculate surfaces, extrapolate the subsurface geometry of rock units, and exhibit the spatial distribution and intensity of related parameters such as rock chemistry. Methods and techniques that describe subsurface-bedded ore deposits are used to define lithologic units of interest, determine the geometries of these units by using computer-generated grids, document the spatial distribution and intensity of related attributes, and produce derivative products through the mathematical manipulation of these grids.
