I'm working with geostatistics and I use geoR package, which I find very
good. However it doesn't implement the classic geostatistics but a
"model based geostatistics" as proposed by Peter Diggle and team.

R news of June 2001 has an article about geoR by Paulo Ribeiro, the main
developer, that you might like to take a look at. I find this number of
Rnews a very good source for someone willing to use geostatistics in R.
