Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Exploration for SEDEX deposits in the Purcell anticlinorium for >50 years has produced a large amount of regional geological, geochemical and geophysical data. 3D geological models are critical for discovery of buried mineral deposits, especially in well-explored areas like the Purcell anticlinorium, where good stratigraphic markers, a new digital map series and good topographic expression allow a regional 4-D restoration of the ore horizon. We now have the geologic and technical expertise to do this modelling for the more challenging regions away from a mine site and are also ready to enhance the way models are built with new tools that support more regional scale interpretation through estimation of spatial continuity of subsurface and surface geological features.
