This paper aims at presenting the 3D models of respective geological settings, deformation structures and
geochemical distributions, in terms of better understanding of the related ore-genetic processes and
exploration potential. Since the beginnings of mining industry the challenge of mineral exploration is to
approach new exploration targets. In that direction, 3D and 4D modelling are the new exploration tools that
can help the mineral explorers to visualise, interpolate and interpret geological data, which are critical timeand
money-saving methods. In this study 3D-models had been constructed for several Macedonian CuAu
polymetallic deposits Kadiica, Plavica, Kazan Dol and Borov Dol. Our 3D models were built by mapping
geochemical variations in the Move software by Midland Valley for Kadiica Cu-porphyry deposit and Borov
Dol Cu-Au porphyry deposit (gives the opportunity to the user to create slices of the 3D grid and take a
closer look to the spatial variation of an assay) as well as in Target 3D for ArcGIS system for Cu-Au high sulphidation epithermal Plavica deposit and Cu vein type deposit Kazan Dol.
