The traditional mineral resource estimation method has the advantages of simple operation for the geological staff. But, it is weak in the mineral resource estimation, lacking a three-dimensional sense, and with a low estimation accuracy. However, the geostatistics is difficult to adapt to the ore deposit mineral with the characteristics of different kinds of mineral species,the complex type and a variety of forms in our country. This paper puts forward a new idea: based on the method of the parallel section, the real three-dimensional model instead of the simple and abstract two-dimensional ones is dealt with by using the 3D mining software, which achieves the mode of the ore volume acquisition in the real three-dimensional environment. The results of applications to some mines show that the parallel section method of 3D geological space effectively improves the reserve estimation model, which, to some extent, enhances the visibility and achieves the purpose of the high precision of ore body reserves.
