Pit Optimization for bedded deposits

Standard pit optimization uses blocks with fixed vertical sizes which results in sub-optimal outcomes.  Bedded deposits are best modelled using 2D grids where the vertical position of the seam or vein is NOT at a fixed vertical interval.  This paper discusses a solution.

Facing the Consequences

Optimal compositing in bedded deposits Rules of thumb are often applied to compositing situations.  There is a better solution.
