After outlining the types of problems in mining that geostatistics can be used to solve, an introductory exercise is presented. It illustrates the need for good estimators, particularly when selective mining is being used. The economic impact of the support and information effects on reserve calculations is stressed. Lastly some case studies comparing geostatistics with other estimation methods are reviewed.
