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
