Advanced mining geostatistics is covered in a three-day intensive short course. The focus will be on simulation techniques for uncertainty and risk assessment; however, fundamental principles of variography and kriging are covered as prerequisites to simulation. Gaussian techniques are developed. Indicator, object-based and annealing-based techniques are introduced. The course will be taught in the context of the Pangeos software.


Clayton Deutsch is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering Engineering at the University of Alberta. He teaches and conducts research into geostatistics. Prior to joining the University of Alberta, Dr. Deutsch was an Associate Professor (Research) in the Department of Petroleum Engineering at Stanford University, a Research Specialist with Exxon Production Research Company, and an Engineer with Placer Dome Inc.


The Campus Tower hotel is very close to the campus (perhaps 3 minutes away).

The Varscona hotel is a 20 minute walk away, but it is a bit nicer (same cost) and closer to a variety of restaurants and such.
