Brisbane, September 9, 2014 – Datamine is launching a significant addition to its geostatistical capability with the release of the Uniform Conditioning Module in Studio 3. This development will provide users of Datamine’s industry-leading resource and reserve evaluation system with an enhanced understanding of their potential recoverable reserves and an ability to bring extra value to their organisation.
Uniform Conditioning is the first module to be developed from the collaboration between Datamine and Geovariances and uses algorithms identical to those available in Isatis. Uniform Conditioning provides a method for creating a resource model that is representative of the variability of the deposit for a defined selective mining unit (SMU), which if used for mine planning and reserve calculation can increase the confidence in the resulting reports and mine plans.
The module produces grade tonnage curves from sample data, as well as alternative grade tonnage curves and representative models for different SMU sizes. The workflow user interface takes the user through the steps of carrying out a study and interpretation of the results is greatly assisted by the integration with Studio’s charting and visualisation capabilities.
Hennie Coetzee, Datamine’s Geology Solution Manager, explained how delighted he was regarding this new development – “It’s a great addition to Datamine’s resource evaluation toolset and will help our customers develop more reliable resource reports. I’m especially pleased to see that our relationship with Geovariances has resulted in sophisticated Isatis functionality being delivered to our customers by integrating it completely within Studio.”
To provide an in-depth insight into the Uniform Conditioning module, Jonathan Graham – Australasian Consulting Manager for Datamine – will be hosting a webinar on the 12th of September covering the following topics:
- Why resource geologists should be using Uniform Conditioning
- Explanation of how to interpret the results generated by Uniform Conditioning
- Overview of the workflow in Studio 3
- Demonstration of the results, graphs and visualisation provided by Studio 3.

The Uniform Conditioning module is one of many key functionality enhancements that will become available with the launch of Studio 3 MR24, scheduled for release in September.
