3D geological model of the Knurów-Szczygłowice hard coal deposit.
A b s t r a c t. The paper describes a workflow (and a resulting 3D geological model), developed for detailed 3D modeling of coal deposits in the "Knurów-Szczygłowice" Underground Coal Mine in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin. The model covers 20 sq. km (4*5 km) and integrates data from various sources: mainly coal seam mining maps and lithological borehole profiles, but also auxiliary sources like legacy cross-sections and structural maps. High grid resolution and relatively small uncertainties allow future testing of the model's application in industry-related issues such as mining subsidence prediction or underground coal gasification.
