Compiling 65 years of data to develop a reliable resource estimate: Target compilation and modelling of San Fernando Mine, Cuba
A digital compilation of historic hardcopy and digital data dating back to the 1950s from the San Fernando massive sulphide deposit in Cuba was completed. The goal was to generate an updated 43-101 resource estimate on a deposit that had not seen any mining activity since 1963. A database was built of all historic drilling, mine plans and sections. These data were validated and then the geology and mineralization modelled creating a framework for resource estimation.
