[PDF] Mining method selection and transition depth ...

During this paper, in order to identify the priority of consideration between the problems of "mining method selection" and "determining transition depth from open-pit to underground mining" an accurate procedure is introduced step by step. First, it is essential to specify if an ore deposit that potentially will have mined by a combined method of open-pit and underground mining.

Open-Pit Mining Methods

2017-4-9 · Open-pit mining methods are applicable to mining ore deposits that apex at or near the surface. If the deposit apexes below the surface, the overburden and barren capping overlying the ore must be removed in advance of open-pit mining. The removal of this material is known as stripping. The stripping-pit limits must be extended beyond the ...

A new generic open pit mine planning process with risk ...

2016-12-17 · Conventionally, mining industry relies on a deterministic view, where a unique mine plan is determined based on a single resource model. A major shortfall of this approach is the inability to assess the risk caused by the well-known geological uncertainty, i.e. the in situ grade and tonnage variability of the mineral deposit. Despite some recent attempts in developing …
