KrigeLognormal-De Wijsian Geostatics 25Kriging was the name given in 1960 by Matheron to the multiple regression procedure for arriving at the best linear unbiased estimator or best linear weighted moving average estimate of the ore grade for an ore block (of any size) by assigning an optimum set of weights to all the available and relevant data inside and outside the ore block.
1987S. Afr. Panorama Oct. 14Internationally, the term ‘kriging’ is associated with Professor Krige’s pioneering work in the field of geostatistics — the application of mathematical statistics in the earth sciences. ‘Kriging’, derived from his surname, refers to statistical methods for ore valuation developed by Professor Krige in the sixties. Today ‘kriging’ is part of the international mining vocabulary.
