Reduce misclassification through best practice grade control

You will learn:

  • Best practice grade control sampling and data collection techniques
  • The pros and cons of different sampling methods used for grade control
  • The importance of good geological mapping
  • To understand the concept of misclassification and how to minimise ore loss and dilution
