How can I calculate the volume and average of a voxel model?

Occurrence

Can I calculate the volume of my Voxel Model?  Can I calculate the volume for a specific assay range
or lithology groups?

Solution

Once you have created or loaded a Voxel Model in 3D, right-click on its Workspace branch and open
the Properties dialog for the model. Under the Data tab select the Model Information button.
This opens a text report summarising the Voxel model's properties and statistics (this can be saved),
as well as providing access to the statistics explorer.

Any lithology bands in the model, as set under the Lithology tab in the Properties dialog, will
automatically have their individual volumes calculated.

For assay and other data bands in the model, you will have to set a Threshold range (in the Threshold
tab
). The Model Information text report will display the volume for the thresholded range, as well as
the mean value for the range.
