Geologic Modeling

In any mining or exploration project, geologic models provide the basis of informed decisions, successful exploration programs, technical reporting and resource estimation. Models are based on real data. That data can come from a multitude of sources and in many different formats. It is important that this data has gone thru quality control procedures so you have confidence that the model accurately represents the subsurface geology.  Good models make for good decisions.


3D geological modeling, analysis and interpretation has become essential as mineral exploration has become progressively more focused on deep, under cover and brownfields targets. A project’s success depends on the understanding of each deposit’s 3D geometry. This knowledge is gained thru the use of 3D GIS in mineral exploration to utilize all available parameters to evaluate exploration, grade distribution, and resource estimation. Integrating different types of data such as geology, alteration, metallurgy, recovery, geophysics within a single 3D environment adds significant value to the existing data model.

GeoGRAFX provides the in-house capability to create three-dimensional (3D) explicit and implicit geologic models that fully incorporate geological, geochemical, geophysical and surface data from a variety of data sources to enable a better understanding of an ore deposit and serve as a basis for decision making in drillhole targeting and resource estimation. We work with an extensive set of 3D-GIS, data analysis, and visualization tools to ensure data integrity and provide insight into your interpretation.

Van Deemen Au Project, AZ

The Van Deemen property is located in the Black Mountains, one of the most productive gold mining areas in Arizona. The deposit is a breccia-hosted gold deposit controlled by a detachment fault separating Tertiary age volcanic rocks from Precambrian granite.

Lisbon Valley Cu Mine Site, UT

Lisbon Valley Mining Company engages in mining copper in Lisbon Valley, Utah. Copper concentrations occur mostly as intergranular disseminations in sandstones and pebble conglomerates.

Kerrs Au Project, Ontario

The Kerrs gold property is situated in the Abitibi area of the Canadian Shield East of Timmins/Matheson Ontario. The quartz-carbonate breccia deposit is stratabound occurring at the contact of a thick, mafic pillow flow sequence overlying an ultramafic, magnetite-rich flow sequence.
