Vulcan Explorer Bundle

Vulcan Explorer provides an interactive 3D visualisation and modelling environment to plan drill holes, identify targets and preliminary reserves, and test and validate exploration models. Block models and 3D triangulated surfaces created with Vulcan Modeller, GeoModeller or MineModeller can be viewed.

Explorer Modules


  • Manage and validate drillhole, geophysical, lithological and analytical data in Vulcan, or interface to third party databases
  • 3D display/analysis of drillhole data
  • 3D geological interpretation
  • Compositing for non-stratigraphic and stratigraphic environments
  • Model both grade shell and geology domains
  • Ability to calculate strip ratios from user-defined stratigraphic block model (HARP) variables, limiting a lowest mineable level

Block Model Viewing

  • Visualise the block model
  • Query information in the block model
  • Compositing and grid modelling


  • Statistical analysis of Vulcan databases, grids and block models
  • Automatically output results and charts to Microsoft® Excel™
