Messrs. Roy and Roadifer, in separate papers, have proposed similar methodologies for making regional resource estimates. The idea underlying their approach is quite interesting, and may have extensions incorporable in larger schemes of estimation.
Roy's and Roadifer's approach adopts a simple "structural" model of deposit size, and uses the subjective feelings of geologists to generate probability density functions (pdf's) of the model parameters. A pdf of regional resources is approximated by using Monte Carlo simulation.
