The geotectonic setting of Serbo-Macedonian Zone(SMZ) facilitates the formation of porphyry copper mineralisations. This zone hosts many known deposits having been discovered and located in the areas of Pontokerasia, Vathi, Skouries, Gerakario and Fissoka in Greece, and Buchim, Ilovitza and Osogovo in FYROM. The SMZ metallogenetic belt consists of strongly deformed metamorphic rocksof Palaeozoic age superimposed by Tertiary magmatic activity.The 3D modeling tools are frequently used to make cost- och time-efficient tools in mineral exploration, to visualize, correlate and interpret geological data. This paper aims at presenting a comparative evaluation of the porphyry copper mineralisations of AgiosPavlos (Gerakarioarea) and Kadiica (Bukovik-Kadiica area) based on 3D modeling tools of respective geological settings, deformation structures and geochemical distributions, in terms of better understanding related ore-genetic processes and exploration potential.
