The coming of a generation of personal computers with low-cost graphic cards and math processors, gives a new impulse to geological modeling. It now is possible to simulate rapidly and with accuracy complex geological environments with reduced hardware. Such models can be used for teaching mineral exploration or for simulating geological data that can be output easily and used in teaching related techniques like geostatistics or multivariable analysis.Aside from teaching, several uses of complex geological models are promising such as the modeling of real targets in order to test various strategies of exploration or exploitation. Another use is the experimentation of natural processes such as erosion, dissemination of elements around ore-bodies, folding, faulting, etc...
