Abstract

The aim of this paper is to show how, under certain conditions of mineralization and exploration, the krig­ing equations of G. Matheron can be simplified by the random kriging procedure. The kriging equations are briefly discussed, then different possibilities of sim­plification are considered, according to the size of panels to be estimated, i.e., large, medium or small in regard to the exploration mesh. In each situation, an example of application to the estimation of tonnage-mean ore grade curve in a bauxite lens is given.
