3-D House of Gold

I watched the British gangster flick, Layer Cake, last night. Although I had some trouble understanding the dialogue, the main character's motives were never in question. If you liked Casino you'll probably like this movie.

"Layer cake" is also geological term for uniformly layered rocks. In some cases a "layer cake" model works great. In areas of complex geology, 3-D computer modelling and visualization are required. This is not a trivial exercise. Goldcorp was able to increase reserves at its Red Lake mine by challenging the world's brightest to tell them where to dig for more gold.
