The Challenge

Andres Beluzan, a Mining Civil Engineer and Executive Director of Marco Alfaro Consultores, has been using Surpac throughout the past decade for his work in geological resource estimation.

Dassault Systèmes Response

A recent upgrade to Surpac has made the organization impressed with the efficiency of achieving estimation results at processing speeds nearly 17 times faster.


When completing resource estimation for an iron-ore body in northern Chile in which 549,994 blocks were estimated using ordinary kriging, the entire processing time with Surpac 6.7 took only 1 minute and 30 seconds. Previously, the same process took 25 minutes and 26 seconds.
