GOCAD® Mining Suite
I've had a chance to use SKUA [Implicit Modelling] on an active project and compare the results with conventional modelling. Generally I've found most software looks good in the packaging and produces rather underwhelming results – SKUA was completely the opposite, I'm completely gob-smacked with how well it created an extensive, realistic regional model with a few scraps of a priori information.

Build and analyze integrated, quantitative, multi-disciplinary 3D earth models with the power of 3D-GIS. From data import to exploration drillhole design, geoscientists from all disciplines can manage their project from one central software application.
Advanced, easy-to-use, modularized software that becomes the basis of sound and rapid decision-making. Custom designed for mineral exploration and geotechnical hazard assessment. It has a fully integrated 3D-GIS query environment, advanced visualization and a focus on data organisation for better analysis. It enables precise geological modelling (wireframe), block modelling, and property modelling. It provides natural connections to geologically-constrained geophysical modelling and inversion, multi-disciplinary 3D exploration targeting, exploratory and geochemical data analysis, and geotechnical hazard estimation and monitoring.
GOCAD Mining Suite is a customized extension of SKUA-GOCADTM--Paradigm® developed for the petroleum industry by Paradigm B.V.. GOCAD Mining Suite leverages very significant oil and gas R&D investment to address earth modelling challenges in the mining industry.

GOCAD Mining Essentials
This industry-leading earth modelling application has been designed from the ground up to rapidly construct integrated multi-disciplinary 3D earth models. Includes the basic GOCAD core functionalities as well as Mining Utilities and 3D-GIS.
SKUA – Implicit Modelling
Provides precise 3D geological modelling tools that obey stratigraphic rules to generate structural models of all levels of complexity. Its intuitive workflow environment is fast, allowing users of all levels to model faster and more accurately.
Developed to address the problem of constructing 3D structural geology models given sparse structural and geological data. It provides the tools needed to quickly build smooth 3D curves and surfaces that conform to structural data, as well as editing and interpolation tools.
Potential Fields Module
Provides quantitative interpretation of potential fields data within a 3D earth modelling context. Modelling and inversion workflows for gravity and magnetic data use geological models, structural and petrophysical constraints, as well as traditional filtering and interpretation tools, within an exceptional 3D visualization environment.
