Simulation technique has been used for a feasibility study of a prospecting project for deep seated ore bodies.The simulation model is divided into three main parts:
1)The bedrock model - the mathematical model of the geology in the investigated block.
2)The ore model - the mathematical model of the "economical" targets within the investigated block.
3)The drilling model - the mathematical description of a borehole.
Each part makes use of several parameters which make it possible to study different prospecting situations. Distribution functions for the parameters are estimated according to the geology of the Skellefte ore field.The simulation procedure consists of three parts:
1)Random location and determination of the geometry of ore bodies.
2)Location of boreholes.
The simulation procedure is realized in a computer by a system of computer programs.
