AbstractRegional scale 3D modelling is important in enhancing our geological understanding of the subsurface to explore for mineral deposits at greater depths. The challenge is to upscale information available in densely drilled mine sites to regional 3D models in sparsely drilled environments. We present innovative methods used for regional-scale 3D geological modelling of the world class Pb-Zn SEDEX system in the Purcell Anticlinorium in B.C., developed through the Geological Survey of Canada's Targeted Geoscience (TGI4) program. We demonstrate how integration of geological map, drill hole and geophysical data is levered in a 3D environment to support interpretation of the entire ore system, thereby increasing the potential for deep discovery.
