Blog Part 1 of 4 | SURPAC – Long Section Puncture Plots.
As an underground geologist, one of your job’s may be to create a long section puncture plot of the ore body drill-hole intercepts displaying the grade and true width.
This plot can then be used to help monitor the grades while mining, and to assist in the design of infill drilling programs to upgrade the resource-reserves.
In this first in a series of 4 posts on this topic, we outline the steps to create a Long Section Puncture Plot of the Mine Ore Zone displaying Hole ID, grade and true thickness.
Coding the Geological Database, compositing
and calculating True Thickness
Create an intercept table in the database if this is not done already.

Part 1: Click here | In the first post we show how to create a Long Section Puncture Plot of the Mine Ore Zone displaying Hole ID, grade and true thickness.
Part 2: Click here | In the 2nd post, we look at creating an entity to display the hole ID, thickness and grade and to create a legend.
Part 3: Click here | In the 3rd post, we go through the process of creating a gram-meters plot and contouring the data.
Part 4: Click here | In the 4th post, we describe how to outline the Ore Body with greatest value with a contoured gram meter plot.
