3-D Software Solution for Geological Modeling


Aranz Geo Ltd., developer of 3-D geological modeling software Leapfrog, has released Leapfrog Geo, a new workflow-based solution for modeling geology and mineralization.

According to the developer, Leapfrog Geo advances the techniques pioneered in Leapfrog Mining with intuitive workflows that simplify operation and enhance flexibility. Leapfrog Geo offers an add-on Interpolation module that provides a robust indication of the available resource while ensuring the effects of geology are incorporated clearly and effectively. Intuitive workflows and simplified operation means rapid grade contouring is now accessible to many levels of users. The Leapfrog model is produced as a continuous shape that clarifies artifacts and domaining deficiencies. This rapid grade contouring is an important step in verifying domains and estimating parameters, according to the company, and the Interpolation module also integrates with, and complements, traditional geostatistical workflows—with the successful synergy of implicit geological modeling, interpolation and geostatistics representing a major advance for grade shell production, said Aranz. The software is
available in 32 and 64-bit architectures. A full-featured trial version can be obtained by visiting the URL below.
