  3. 3. How: Through experimental design techniques applied to variogram based estimation methods. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August 2009 [email_address] http://www.slideshare.net/bragaprof/stanford-2009-1872654
  4. 4. Outline of the presentation a)Creating a synthetic study case: Simulate the grade on a regular 3D mesh based on data of a lateritic Ni deposit and calculate the amount of resources. b)Applying designed experiments: Varying the values of the four main parameters of the semivariogram, according to an experimental design. c)Testing the method with kriging: Using a sample, estimate the total resources with kriging by changing the semivariogram parameters values, according to an experimental design. Calculate the different resource totals and compare with a). d)Testing the method with simulation: Repeat c) with simulation as an interpolator. e)Discussion. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August 2009
  5. 5. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August 2009 a) Simulate the grade on a regular 3D mesh based on a sample of a lateritic Ni deposit, and calculate the amount of resources. Figure 1
  6. 6. a)The data consists of 76 drillholes, located in a grid of 100mx100m having in total 2021 drillholes samples which were collected downhole at 1m interval. The experimental and the adjusted semivariogram in the principal directions were obtained by a geologist .

  7. 7. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 a) The central values(0) of a spherical semivariogram model parameters, as well as, the minimum(-) and maximum(+) acceptable values to the geologist are presented in Table 1. Table 1

  16. 16. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 b)For each interpolator the sequence presented in Table 2 was applied, obtaining different resources values. For each range and level an average of the resources obtained are calculated, as shown in the next slide, leading to the average effect table.

  19. 19. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 b)From Table 3 we build the average effect plots that indicate the best combination regarding the estimation of the resources. We are not proceeding the full designed experiments phases, that is, the regression between the variable with its factors, but only keeping the factors levels assignment strategy.

  26. 26. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 Resources 9, 18 and 27 are equal because they correspond to the same choice of parameters - central values. Table 4 30558.84 R[27] 30558.84 R[18] 30558.84 R[9] 30608.18 R[26] 30379.65 R[17] 30328.81 R[8] 30610.49 R[25] 30712.45 R[16] 28159.78 R[7] 30522.38 R[24] 30277.72 R[15] 30660.73 R[6] 30525.41 R[23] 30612.68 R[14] 30669.34 R[5] 30579.27 R[22] 30809.97 R[13] 30846.89 R[4] 30912.85 R[21] 30811.65 R[12] 30594.60 R[3] 30346.11 R[20] 30547.45 R[11] 30591.69 R[2] 30686.57 R[19] 30549.52 R[10] 30500.94 R[1]
  27. 27. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 c) As mentioned before we calculate the average of the Resources for each set of runs, as arranged by type of parameter and its value. It will allow us to build the so called “average effect plot”. For each row we calculate the average of the corresponding Resources indicated by its run number. That is, for N-S RANGE(-) we take the average between R[1], R[2], R[10], R[11], R[19] and R[20], that happens to be 30,539Kg. The same procedure is repeated for each row, generating a designed average.

  46. 46. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 The extension of the method to simulation will be called designed averaged simulations (DAS). The results preserved the relation between the quality of the semivariogram and that of the resource estimation.
  47. 47. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 The vertical semivariogram is the best one and there is no relevant difference between conservative and central choices, but for optimist choices the impact is negative. The resources estimation is better achieved with DAS(Vrange(0)) than simulation.

  50. 50. International Association for Mathematical Geosciences, Stanford, USA, 23-28 August, 2009 d) conclusions: 1)The gain in the evaluation process was almost 10% 2)The method orientates which simulations or interpolations must be kept. 3)The method allows a better selection of directional semivariograms and its parameters levels. 4) Future work includes tests with other samples and simulation methods.
