Description

This 3D model combined to 3D queries carried out jointly with a regional metallogenic synthesis, allowed a better understanding of this mature mining camp. In addition, new areas of high economic potential, that would have been difficult to recognize only from surface information and diamond drill holes (DDH), were determined by this low-cost method.

Dimensions

11.4 x 4 x 1 km
