The present study is focused on spatial modelling of a kaolin deposit in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, and the methodical procedure of development, evaluation and visualization of a 3D model are described step by step. The implementation of this methodology is performed in Visual Studio 2019 with use of the Surfer and Voxler objects from Golden Software. This methodology combined with the newly developed software (Kaolin_A and Kaolin_Viz programs) allow a user to create a variant dynamic model

It enables a quick update of the model when changing the input data, based on the new mining exploration or when changing the modelling parameters. The presented approach leads to a more advanced evaluation of deposits, including various estimates of reserves according to pre-specified usability conditions. The efficiency of the developed methodology and the software for the evaluation of the deposit are demonstrated on the kaolin deposit Jimlíkov-East, located near the village Jimlíkov about 5 km west of Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic.
