BLOCK ESTIMATE METHODS They base on block models of a mineral deposit, either on bench by bench (2D) models or on real 3D models. The deposit space is subdivided into a matrix of blocks whose dimensions are governed by the mining method chosen as well as the geology and the sampling network of the deposit. If the blocks are similar in size and shape, any 2D spatial statistics can be
