Mining geostatistics.


Mining geostatistics.

Journel, A.G. and Ch. J. Huijbregts.

The Blackburn Press


600 pages




Writing for geologists, mining engineers and metallurgists, Journel (Stanford U.) and Huijbregts (Bureau of Geological Research and Mining, France) aim for a complete handbook. They work from their practical experience gained in mining operations in France to cover geostatistics and mining applications, the theory of regionalized values, structural analysis, case studies of structural analysis, Kriging and the estimation of in situ In place. When something is "in situ," it is in its original location.  resources, selection and estimation of recoverable reserves, simulation of deposits and introduce non-linear geostatistics. Readers should have a modest framework in integral calculus integral calculus: see calculus.
integral calculus

Branch of calculus concerned with the theory and applications of integrals. While differential calculus focuses on rates of change, such as slopes of tangent lines and velocities, integral calculus
, linear algebra linear algebra

Branch of algebra concerned with methods of solving systems of linear equations; more generally, the mathematics of linear transformations and vector spaces.
, statistics, stochastic processes stochastic process

In probability theory, a family of random variables indexed to some other set and having the property that for each finite subset of the index set, the collection of random variables indexed to it has a joint probability distribution.
, variance, covariance Covariance

A measure of the degree to which returns on two risky assets move in tandem. A positive covariance means that asset returns move together. A negative covariance means returns vary inversely.
 and distribution functions, along with a geological and mining background. The authors include programs in FORTRAN.
