We demonstrate a method for calculating and displaying uncertainties abociated with the building of 3D geological models from sparse datasets. The example given is the Sandstone greenstone belts in the Archean granite-greenstone terrane of the Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia, where outcrop is limited and depth controls come from one deep seismic reflecion line and geophysical inversions. We present means of displaying uncertainties in 3D and as vertical line plots detailing the probablilities and uncertainties abociated with each rock unit.
