Kriging, a geostatistical method, was used to examine spatially correlated geological phenomena with respect to their geometrical influence in a uranium underground mining region of Wyoming. A comparison with the usual technique, assuming independence of the data, showed that kriging gave lower mean estimates and corresponding variances which are more representative of the sample distribution.
