Limestone constitutes the predominant raw material for manufacturing clinker, which in turn is an intermediate product to produce cement. But if the deposit is not homogenous and the coeffi cient of variation (COV) of the main inherent radicals in limestone is very high then the consistency in the quality parameters of the product varies and so on the process requirements thereby affecting productivity. In such cases the deposit has to be understood statistically and a proper geological model should be designed to best fi t our mine design parameters. This paper deals in detail how surpac leads in solving a similar problem…
