Hi,

I've xyzg data of holes by depth 2.5m for all holes inside mine .G= gold content .

I draw ore limits by polygon in 2d map, how I calculate average grade of ore body that I bounded by polygon(see attached photo)

thanks

Hi deyaaeldeen,

Your photo did not get attached, but you can right-click your polygon in RockPlot 2D and save it to a Polygon Table, then use the polygon as a solid filter in the Utilities Solid | Filters | Polygon Clip menu.

Use the Utilities Solid | Statistics | Report menu to view volumes and mean node values.

I saved the polygon and I filtered the soild model.but which best method for modeling (inverse distace Anisotropic or Inverse distance weighting)

I use rockwork 15

thanks

Both methods can be used to apply a horizontal preference to the weighting.

• Inverse Distance Anisotropic uses one point from each quadrant or sector.
• Inverse Distance Weighting uses the specified number of points from each quadrant or sector.

Every data set is different, so try them both to see which one gives the best results.

Dear sir

I have a 2 questions in volumetrices > extract solid in mining application.

1- what does maximum slope represent (ore dipping-bench angel-mine slope)?

2- if i want to draw an road for pit after excavation how to do this?

thanks

Hi Deyaaeldeen,

1. The Volumetrics | Extract Solid menu uses the Maximum Slope value to define the maximum slope of the sides of the pit. This item and all the menu items are explained in the Instructions tab to the right of the menu item in RockWorks 17, 16, and 15.

2. RockWorks does not have the option to include the drawing of a road in the volumetrics. The tool is intended as a rough estimate, not a mine pit planning tool.
