The Kriging Oxymoron: A Conditionally Unbiased and Accurate Predictor (2nd Edition)

  • Edward Isaaks
Part of the Quantitative Geology and Geostatistics book series (QGAG, volume 14)

An analysis of conditional bias and its impact on mineral resource estimation is presented. A simple method is proposed for building a long-term mineral resource block model that accounts for conditional bias, change-of-support, and the information effect at the time of mining.
