This paper describes a framework for capturing geological structures in a 3D block model and improving its spatial fidelity, including the correction of stratigraphic boundaries, given new mesh surfaces. Using surfaces that represent geological boundaries, the objectives are to identify areas where refinement is needed, increase spatial resolution to minimise surface approximation error, reduce redundancy to increase the compactness of the model, and identify the geological domain on a block-by-block basis. These objectives are fulfilled by four system components which perform block-surface overlap detection, spatial structure decomposition, sub-blocks consolidation and block tagging, respectively. The main contributions are a coordinate-ascent merging algorithm and a flexible architecture for updating the spatial structure of a block model when given multiple surfaces, which emphasises the ability to selectively retain or modify previously assigned block labels. The techniques employed include block-surface intersection analysis based on the separable axis theorem and ray-tracing for establishing the location of blocks relative to surfaces. To demonstrate the robustness and applicability of the block merging technique to a wider class of problem, the core approach is extended to reduce fragmentation in a block model where surfaces are not directly involved. The results show the proposed method produces merged blocks with less extreme aspect ratios and is highly amenable to parallel processing. The overall framework is applicable to orebody modelling given mineralisation or stratigraphic boundaries, and 3D segmentation more generally, where there is a need to delineate spatial regions using mesh surfaces within a block model.
