Earlier this year, the Lands Geological Survey Division (LGSD) of Mines and Geosciences Bureau – Central Office (MGB-CO) organized a training on Mineral Resource Estimation using GEOVIA Surpac. The two-week activity was attended by representatives from the technical staff of MGB CO and MGB ROs at the Cocoon Boutique Hotel, Quezon City on May 27- June 7, 2019.
Parallel sessions for both advanced and beginner’s training were facilitated by the technical representatives from Paramina Earth Technologies, Inc. to cover concepts and procedures of operating GEOVIA Surpac especially in mineral resource estimation. The software showcases comprehensive tools such as drill hole data management, geological modeling, block modeling, geostatistics, mine design, mine planning, resource estimation and more.
As a follow-up to the said activity, MGB-CO spearheads another training on Resource Estimation Techniques scheduled on November 25-29, 2019 at the Hive Hotel and Convention Place in Quezon City to further capacitate MGB technical staff. #agotdumanas
