MM has an option for a "Block size factor' during estimation. The online help states the following about it:
"The block size factor allows a user-defined block size to be used for the interpolation of the grades to the block model. If specified, the block factor will be a (2, 3, 4, etc.) multiple of the parent block size."
If, for example, I have 15x15x5m parent blocks and set the factor to 2, will it estimate the blocks as if they were 30x30x10m and should my QKNA and subsequent discretisation and search parameters be based on that expanded block size? Or does MM just estimate 15x15x10m blocks, in this case 8 (2x2x2), and average the estimated grades of such?
