30 Seconds of Info from Ian Glacken – Capping before compositing or after?


Resource estimation and evaluation.

Capping before or after compositing: This is a controversial topic which has adherents on both sides, although most believe that capping should be carried out after compositing, when the data has equal support.  If you are going to cap before you composite the data, then the capping should be carried out with the variable as ‘metal’ or accumulation (grade times length), rather than just the assay itself.
