Two white papers from GoldSim that are, in my opinion, worth downloading and reading:

Other white papers also available on the site include:

If you are not already familiar with the GoldSim suite of programs, you might also want to spend some time becoming familiar with the background and basis of it functions. In essence you can use the software to model almost any complex system consisting of multiple units that involve deterministic or probabilistic inputs, processes, and outputs. For example, the human body and its various organs is one such system. A mine and all its facilities circulating water, chemicals, and just maybe potential pollutants is another. I suspect the use of this software is limited only by imagination, data, and time.
