Stratigraphic Modeling | Interval Separation
In order to make this calculation, the "Ore" option must be selected in the "Model Definitions" and the "Minimum Waste Thickness" information and "Min. Ore/Waste Separation" information in the "Model Definitions / Advanced Settings" must be filled. The waste that remains below the Minimum Waste Thickness value and falls between the two ore lithologies to be modeled is included in the ore. The amount of waste included in the ore below a certain limit cannot be distinguished from ore. However, those above a certain limit value can be calculated in volumetric terms. In this, Min. Ore/Waste Separation criterion is used. As a result, the amount remaining between the value below the minimum waste thickness included in the ore and the minimum ore/waste separation value represents the waste volume in volumetric terms. This feature is used in mining operations to calculate the amount to be distinguished as waste from ore volume.
More than one lithology or interval can be defined as ore in Model Definitions. With this feature, the total waste volume and tonnage between the lithologies defined as ore can be automatically calculated.
