Localised Multivariate Uniform Conditioning (LMUC) is a technique designed for spatially locating Selective Mining Unit (SMU) grades derived using Multivariate Uniform Conditioning (MUC) for the assessment of recoverable resources. LMUC has the advantage of producing SMU estimates conforming to the MUC panel-specific grade-tonnage curves while preserving the spatial grade distribution at the selective mining level. However, LMUC results have two severe artifacts. This paper documents both artifacts using four grades from a large nickel–cobalt laterite deposit in Western Australia.
