Program Summaries

CONCSA - Conversion of Collar, Survey, Assay and Geology Data to 201 Format

This program is used to create a “MEDS-ready” M201V1 input file from an ASCII collar file and one or more ASCII assay files. An optional downhole survey file and up to four geology files can be merged in as well. CONCSA reads in the collar, survey, assay and geology files, and converts the data into a format that can be used by the MineSight ® program M201V1

M201V1 - Load Drillhole Data to MineSight ® Data Files

This program checks the raw drillhole data and adds it to the drillhole assay file and the drillhole survey file (Files 11 and 12).

M202V1 - Drillhole Data File Editing

Update drillhole values in the assay file from a prepared input file.

M203V1 - List Drillhole Assay File

DRILLHOLE DATA OPERATIONS

Introduction To Drillhole Data Entry & Manipulation

CONCEPTS OF RAW EVALUATION DATA

Mineral projects produce many different types of data in large quantities which must be maintained in a form that is useablet for a variety of engineering and graphic functions. Most data will be stored in a numeric form which means that seam and geologic codes must be converted if any descriptive terms have been used.

Sample Data is the primary information taken for most mineral deposits. Theoretically, each sample should be an accurate representation of the mineralization at that location. Interpretations of critical relationships and estimations of commercial values will be based on this data.

Sample data is normally obtained from a drilling program followed by some assaying procedure. Sample data may also be obtained from various types of geophysical logging methods or from channel, chip, or bulk sampling.

Sample data should usually contain information for:

Distances at the start and end of the interval

Assays and other quantitative values

Geologic codes and other qualitative data

This data must be accompanied by information that will allow three-dimensional coordinates to be calculated when needed.

Two MineSight ® Data Files are usually created from the raw drillhole data:

File 11-Drillhole Assay Data File

File 12-Drillhole Survey Data File

where 11 and 12 are the MineSight ® file reference numbers.

STEPS FOR ENTERING DRILLHOLE DATA

1. Plan the use of each item of drillhole data.

2. Select the formats for the assay and survey data.

3. Enter the drillhole data with the format selected in Step 2. Check it against a printer listing.

4. Run M200V1 to determine the minimum and maximum values of the data.

5.

Assign the item descriptors for Files 11 and 12 (if not previ- ously done) with M102TS. Suggestions on items to include are following.

6.

Run M201V1 to load the assay data to File 11 and the survey data to File 12.

7.

List the assay data from File 11 with M203V1. List the survey data from File 12 with M204V1. Check both lists carefully.

8.

Prepare a map of the drillhole collar locations with M206V1 (if a plotter map is desired) or with M206V2 (for a printer map). Check locations of each drillhole as thoroughly as possible!!

9.

Code the geologic data for each drillhole. Enter the codes into File 11 with M205TS or M205V1.

10.

Check File 11 and/or add calculated data using M208V1 or M208RP with your own USR208 routine.

11.

Plot cross-sections with M216V1 or M216SM followed by M122V1 to check the data.

SUGGESTIONS FOR DRILLHOLE ITEMS

Each drillhole interval to be stored in File 11 must have the following items of information:

REF# - the drillhole reference number assigned by M201V1

FROM - the drillhole distance at the start of the interval

-TO- - drillhole distance at the end of the interval

-AI- - the optional interval length

Labels REF#, FROM, and -TO- must not be changed.

The following items may be useful in certain projects:

ZTOP - elevation at the FROM drillhole distance

ZBOT - elevation at the -TO- drillhole distance

TRUE - the true interval length corrected for dip

All project should have at least one assay value, e.g.:

T-CU - the total copper assay

ASCU - the acid soluble assay

S-CU - the sulfide copper assay

DRILLHOLE DATA OPERATIONS

MineSight ® is a registered trademark of Leica Geosystems, AG.

MOLY - the molybdenum (MoS2) assay

GOLD - the gold assay (oz/ton, g/tonne)

-AG- - the silver assay

Many projects will need geologic items, e.g.:

ROCK - the code describing rock type

ALTN - the code describing alteration type

ATYP - the alteration intensity

FALT - the code describing fault location

MNRL - the code describing mineralization

MIN% - the % volume of mineralization

STRC - the code describing structure

ZONE - the code describing zones

Other items of use to certain projects:

SPGR - the specific gravity of rock

REC% - the percent recovery of core

For most 200-series programs, File 12 data unit numbers control what data is accessed. M12 refers to the first data unit to access and N12 refers to the last data unit to access. By default, M12=1 and N12=last data unit stored in File 12. Each data unit represents a survey interval. Therefore, holes with down the hole survey data may have multiple data units for each hole.

PROGRAM SUMMARY

CONCSA is used to create a “MEDS-ready” M201V1 input file from an ASCII collar file and one or more ASCII assay files. An optional downhole survey file and up to four geology files can be merged in as well. CONCSA reads in the collar, survey, assay and geology files, and converts the data into a format that can be used by the MineSight ® program M201V1.

REQUIREMENTS AND CONSIDERATIONS

A run file containing a list and description of the collar, survey,

assay and geology files must be used. Based on the items in the assay file, a dat102.i11 file is generated which can be used when initializing File 11. This auxiliary output file lists the assay items, their minimum and maximum values and precision.

The ASCII input data files can optionally contain header information (i.e., files with headers). In general, most ASCII files do not contain header information. If you are using a data input file which contains header information, that information must occur at the very top of the file, above all of the data lines, and must be in the following, specific format:

1. Title line (comment line).

2. Number of lines that follow describing the data variables.

3. A line of information describing each variable (or column of data): name; whether the data is alphanumeric (charac- ter), ‘C’ or numeric, ‘N’; the column width; and the number of decimal places.

Sample File With Header Information

In the example below, the first seven lines contain information

about the data that follows:

Drillhole assays

N 5 1

N 8 2

If the ASCII file type is without header information, then you

must specify the format in which the data occurs using a specific Fortran format statement (i.e., A10,3F12.2,2A8,4F8.1,9I9)

-OR-

if the data is in Free Field (*) format, meaning there are spaces

between the columns of data. The default file type is without header information and Free Field format. In a case of Free Field format, commas and semicolons can be used as delimiters.

You do not need a PCF to run this program.

File Types

To. The assay interval will be calculated if an assay interval item

Collar File

is not specified. The total number of items in the assay file must be specified.

One collar file is allowed and it is a required file. The subsequent files (assay, survey and geology files) use the DHID for correct merging.

If these assay file(s) have header information, then the program will read the header line for information regarding the other items. If the assay files do not contain header information, then

If an assay interval does not exist or is missing from the data

Five items are required by the program, and their location in the collar file must be specified: DHID, Easting, Northing, Elevation and Total Depth. There can be more items in the collar file than the five required ones, and the item label name is input on the second panel whether or not it is alphanumeric (character) or numeric. The optional extra items are read from left to right, passing over the columns where the required items are located.

the item labels must be given. In addition, if the data is not in Free Field format, a format statement must be specified. When the data is Free Field, then you have to specify whether this item is alphanumeric (a character) or numeric (a number).

input file, the program will output a -1 value AND a warning message. You can disable the warning messages, which will speed up the program and decrease the output file size.

There is an option to apply a shift to the Easting (X) and/or Northing (Y) values (Par1-2). Collar and survey data can be rotated by selecting the rotate option (PAR11-15).

Geology File

Survey File

Up to four geology files can be used, and these can be mixed file types (with and without header information). Although To

This is an optional file and is not necessary for the program to execute. Only one survey file is permitted.

is an optional data item, if it exists in the geology data file, the column number where the To values occur must be specified.

If a survey file is used, four items of information are required, and their location in the file must be indicated: DHID, From, Azimuth and Dip. As with the collar file, there can be more than the four required items in the survey file, and extra items are read from left to right, skipping over the columns where the required items are located. In the present version, extra items are read but ignored.

If a survey is not available for a DH, that hole is assumed to be vertical. Survey data can also be smoothed down the hole. (IOP70/PAR9). Smoothing is performed via linear interpolation of azimuths and dips.

The Survey dip can be inverted in the case where the survey data was taken at the bottom of the survey and the dip is projected upward (IOP60).

Survey data can be checked for errors. Note that after any errors have been corrected, processing can be sped up by disabling error checking.

Assay File

Multiple assay files can be used. They must all be of the same file type so that the data is all in the same format, either with headers or without headers. Mixed assay file types are not allowed!

The drillhole data must be consecutive. The data for a particular drillhole need not be in order, but it must be in one location within the assay file.

Three items are required in the assay file(s): DHID, From and

The Total Number of items is the total items specified, including:

DHID, From, To (if this item exists in the geology data file), and all other value items that you specify.

If and only if you select the option to split assay intervals to honor geology, then the assay interval will be split, honoring geology, and the assay values will simply be repeated if a geologic boundary (or change) occurs within an assay interval. The overall total assay length will be maintained. If you opt NOT to split assay intervals, then the geologic value that is assigned to that assay interval will be the geologic code at the start (or top) of the assay interval.

M201V1 LOAD DRILLHOLE DATA TO MINESIGHT ® FILES

M201V1 LOAD DRILLHOLE DATA TO MINESIGHT ® FILES

PROGRAM SUMMARY

M201V1 checks the raw drillhole data and adds it to the drillhole assay file and the drillhole survey file.

PROGRAM FLOW DIAGRAM

Prior to running M201V1, scan the data with DHSCAN and use the item descriptors output from DHSCAN to initialize the assay File 11 and the survey File 12 with M102TS or M102V1. Then scan the drillhole data for errors with M201V1 using IOP7=2 to not store data back to the files. If the data is okay, run M201V1 again with IOP7=0 to load the data to the assay and survey files.

INPUT:

- File of prepared Dh data with both surveys and assays

- File of prepared Dh data with both surveys and assays RUN FILE: - DH assay

RUN FILE:

- DH assay item labels

- Extra survey item labels

- Input DH data formats

CALCS:

- Extra survey item labels - Input DH data formats CALCS: - Edit checks DH distances

- Edit checks DH distances

- Load Data Files 11 & 12

- Edit checks DH distances - Load Data Files 11 & 12 OUTPUT: - File 11

OUTPUT:

- File 11 (assay data)

- File 12 (survey data)

After loading the data, manually check the printer report for any errors. If there are several errors, edit the prepared drillhole data and rerun M201V1. If there are only a few errors, you may update File 11 or 12 directly with M202FS. M205TS or M205V1 can be used to load geology or other qualitative codes to File 11.

REQUIREMENTS AND CONSIDERATIONS

The input file for M201V1 must be in the following order:

1. Drillhole collar line

2. Optional survey lines

3. End-of-surveys line (DH-IDENT followed by blanks)

4. Assay intervals (one per line)

5. End-of-drillhole line (blank)

Repeat the above set for each drillhole. See the 200 Technical

Section for a complete description of the drillhole data file format.

Each line of drillhole data for sequence 1 to 4 above begins with a field of alphanumeric (alphabetic and/or numeric) data referred to as the DH-IDENT in later documentation. This field is usually assumed to be 10 columns (characters) in length. You may specify from 1 to 10 columns by defining the appropriate length with

IOP9.

Other than the DH-IDENT, which must be the first field on each line of drillhole data, there is not a required order of items. The INP11 command specifies the order of the items input for assays.

The drillhole data file must contain items FROM and –TO– (spelled this way) which correspond to the assay FROM and the assay TO. The assay interval must be labeled –AI–. Otherwise an assay interval will be computed as(–TO–) – FROM

The formats for the survey and assay data (FMT1, FMT2) must match the specifications described in the Technical Section. These format statements should not exceed 80 columns in length. Presently there is no way to continue a format on a second line.

This program has a limit of 98 surveys, including the collar line.

“Free-field” input can be used if the following conditions fit the data.

1. Collar and survey data must be prepared with 2-field angles (one each for azimuth and dip).

M201V1 LOAD DRILLHOLE DATA TO MINESIGHT ® FILES

MineSight ® Proprietary Software: Mintec, inc.

2. The 10-column drillhole identification must not have any blanks within the alphanumeric field.

3. Use “-1” to store a blank in an alphanumeric item field while using “free-field” format input.

4. The data fields must be separated by at least one blank col- umn.

5. Data must be limited to 1000 columns.

Include the following commands in the run file to read data in “free-field” format:

IOP10=1A single field angle for both azimuth & dip FMT1=(*) Free-field collar, survey data FMT2=(*) Free-field drillhole assay data

Free-field and fixed formats may be used in the same run.

You can specify the bearing and dip angles in terms of degrees and minutes or degrees and fraction. If you are using degrees and fraction, the bearing angle must be measured as an azimuth from north. The azimuth must be between 0 and 360 degrees and the dip between -90 and 90 degrees.

File 11 and File 12 are created with programs M102TS and M102V1. Then M201V1 is used to load Files 11 & 12 or to make additions to these files at a later time. It should not be used to update these files. M202FS is used for interactive updating.

M201V1 will find each occurrence in the data where there is a gap between assays. Many projects need to have each interval in the hole defined, and any gap should be filled in. M201V1 will provide “fill” intervals with -1.0 values.

If an assay straddles a downhole survey point, the assay is split into two parts. Each part will have the same grade values. To avoid this, survey intervals must be modified so that they will fall on an assay interval boundary.

Before M201V1 is run, data items that are to be stored in the drillhole files must be described in the PCF (with M102TS or M102V1). See the Program Section 102 for suggestions on what items to store in Files 11 and 12.

If you wish to store alphanumeric information (e.g., geology descriptors) in File 11, you must specify the item in M102TS with the following descriptors:

Label Minimum = 0.0 Maximum = 0.0 Precision = -1. Roundoff = 0.0

Each alphanumeric item can store up to four characters of alphanumeric information. If you wish to store more than four characters you must specify two or more items. For example, if you want to store eight alphanumeric characters, use the following item descriptors:

label

HOW TO DEBUG AN M201V1 RUN

1. The most common errors observed when M201V1 is run involve the format statements for the survey data (FMT1) and

assay data (FMT2). The program will output the first survey and assay line to the terminal, as illustrated below.

First collar line input under FMT1:

This output should be checked as the messages appear.

2. To test the input formats, you may want to try a small amount of data in a test run before running the full amount of drillhole data.

3. By specifying I-O= 1 in the run file, a single line will be displayed on the terminal and in the printer output file for each drillhole:

The MAX column above indicates the number of input values that exceeded the allowable maximum for all items and the MIN column indicates the number of input values that were below the minimum (i.e., missing) for all items. Note that items exceeding the storable maximum value will be truncated!

4. At the end of the M201V1 run, the program will display a summary of the drillhole data loaded to the MINESIGHT Data Files:

** DRILLHOLE DATA ENTRY TO FILES 11 & 12 ** ** NEXT AVAILABLE ASSAY DATA UNIT = 1997 ** NEXT AVAILABLE SURVEY DATA UNIT = 44

Each drillhole collar and survey interval is stored in its own data unit. Each assay interval is stored in its own separate data unit. In the example above, the last assay interval will actually be stored in data unit 1996 of File 11.

When entering two-field azimuth and dip angles, make sure you specify IOP10=1. In the format statement, you only

need to have a field for the azimuth and a field for the dip angle.

When entering six-field bearings and dip, make

sure you specify IOP10=0. You need to have fields in the format statement for N-S bearing indicator, degrees of bearing, minutes of bearing, E-W bearing indicator, degrees of dip and minutes of dip.

The terminal message:

 

** ERROR. INP11 ITEM label IS NOT IN PILE 11 **

 

indicates that the INPll= label was not found in the PCF descriptors for File 11. When this occurs, the program run

is

terminated and no data is stored in File 11. If the label on the INP11 statement is spelled wrong, correct it and

rerun M201V1.

indicates that either the label FROM and/or the label -TO- was not found on the INP11 statement as required. The label FROM is used for the distance at the start of each assay interval and the label -TO- is used for the distance at the end of each assay interval. If these fields are not present in the data, you cannot load it to File 11.

M202V1 DRILLHOLE DATA FILE EDITING

PROGRAM SUMMARY

Update drillhole values in File 11 or deleting/undeleting drillholes from File 12.

PROGRAM FLOW DIAGRAM

Prior to running M202V1, the assay and survey data must be loaded into MineSight ® Data Files 11 and 12 (M201V1).

INPUT:

- PCF

- Input File

- Files 11 & 12

(M201V1). INPUT: - PCF - Input File - Files 11 & 12 RUN FILE: - File

RUN FILE:

- File location to access for update

- Items to update & input format

- Updates values (can optionally be in separate file)

CALCS:

Updates values (can optionally be in separate file) CALCS: - Reset existing File 11 items -OR-

- Reset existing File 11

items

-OR-

- Delete/Undelete File 12

drillholes

OUTPUT:

-OR- - Delete/Undelete File 12 drillholes OUTPUT: - Updated MineSight ® File 11 or 12 List

- Updated MineSight ® File 11 or 12

List the updated File 11 or 12 (M203V1/M204V1) to document and check values inserted with M202V1.

REQUIREMENTS AND CONSIDERATIONS

M202V1 is used for updating one or more assay items in File 11 or for deleting/undeleting drillholes in File 12.

File 11

If you are updating File 11 items, the input data to M202V1 must contain:

DH-IDENT (must be in 10A1 format)

Interval FROM

Interval TO

One or more assay values to update in File 11

The intervals input with M202V1 do not have to be identical with the assay intervals in File 11. They can be larger than the assay intervals, assigning the same value to an item in several assay intervals, but cannot be smaller (except by the tolerance specified by PAR1). For example, if every 20’ interval from

40’ to 120’ in a drillhole has a GEOL code of 3, those intervals

can be updated together by using a single FROM –TO– range

of 40’–120’.

Important Note: Once you have updated File 11 with M202V1, there is no way to restore the original file. Save a copy of the original file (on disk or tape) before beginning your M202V1 run.

File 12

If you are deleting/undeleting drillholes in File 12, then your input data to M202V1 must contain:

DH-IDENT (must be in 10A1 format)

Selected drillholes will have all their surveys tagged as deleted/ undeleted in File 12. They will not be physically deleted but will be ignored by subsequent programs.

If you have multiple drillholes with the same name, only the first one encountered will be modified. To access a specific one, select it with IOP1 and IOP2.
