Understand how to edit database values manually and with calculations. You will also know how to quickly add a drillhole to an existing database, or merge two separate databases into a single file.
This module provides an overview of Vulcan samples databases. You will learn how samples data differs from drillhole data, and have the opportunity to view several ways Vulcan utilises samples databases.
In this module, you will learn several methods for planning drillholes in Vulcan. You will know how to flag drillhole intervals that fall within the boundary of existing triangulations and block models. You will discover how to create correlated sections and fence diagrams from loaded drillholes, and save the section for later use.
The final module is an exam where you can test your knowledge of the concepts introduced in this course. Pass this exam with a 70% or better to receive your completion certificate.
