Structural Secrets: mining software

Abstract

Midland Valley Exploration based in Glasgow, UK, is applying structural biology experience and techniques across the mining and petroleum sectors. Structural restoration and validation of 2D and 3D models allows the prediction of palaeo-surface geometries, fault architecture, and fluid migration pathways through geological time. Typical mining oriented software packages, such as Vulcan and Mine Site, output static models are introduced that can be imported into Midland Valley's software. The Move software uses a data hub management system in which maps, cross-sections, dip and drill hole data are completely geo-referenced. The software has applied algorithms to predict fault geometries for different deformation mechanisms that are based on the shape of rocks in the hanging wall. There is need to understand the controlling factors that impact decision and outcome that can provide commercial advantages.
