Mine Planning School of Mechanical & Mining Engineering

Mining Rate Optimisation in Open Pit Mining In the mining business, mine-planning is the activity that determines the exploitation of a mineral resource with the aim of maximising its intrinsic value. The number of variables that are required to carry out this activity and the complexity of dealing with a finite, non-renewable resource make it difficult to find an optimum solution.

AbstractOver the past century, open pit mines have steadily increased their production rate. Larger equipment and new technologies make it possible to mine larger batches of materials in a shorter time. Low commodity prices have forced companies to decrease their unit cost, by using new technologies and improving productivity. In the late 20th century, with companies facing low commodity

Contribution to Cost Estimation in Open Pit Aggregates

Haulage distance is one of the main variables in an open pit mine that will affect costs. Adjustment factors were developed for variations in haulage distance from the base cases. The geometry of the open pit was assumed to be an inverted frustum of a right circular cone, with the bottom of the pit at the lowest point of the ore body to be recovered.

In open pit mines, the required explosive displaces ore boundaries from where the geologists originally defined them. Failure to accurately account for blast movement results in ore loss and dilution, whether its misclassification or ore to waste, low grade to high grade ore, sulfide to oxide, or other contaminates.
