management of mining quarrying and ore-processing waste in the European Union This project was completed mainly through the use of questionnaire sent to sub-contractors in almost each country of the EU To assess this information and to extrapolate to the next twenty years this approach has been reinforced using published

INTRODUCTION TO MINING 1 1 MINING'S CONTRIBUTION TO CIVILIZATION If the excavation used for mining is entirely open or operated from the surface it is termed asurfacemine If the excavation consists of openings for human entry below the earth's surface it is called an undergroundmine

Mine surveying: The transition from surface to underground The project entails establishing an underground mine beneath a large operating open pit Two vertical shafts 1040 m deep a decline two return air passes and extensive underground tunnels and infrastructure for mass-mining First underground production is planned for 2021

Coal Mining and Production Industry Description and Practices In open pit mining thick seams (tens of meters) are mined by traditional quarrying Early planning and careful design of operations are the key to minimizing pollution associated with mining activities

Introduction 12/14/2014 3 In open pit mining : Any overburden is stripped and transported to a disposal area to uncover the mineral deposit Both stripping and mining are from one or a sequence of benches Open-pit mines are used when deposits are found near the surface Open pit mining is large scale method in term of production rate Responsible


This course involves the development of a pre-feasibility study for a metalliferous mining project Activities include: assessment of reserves mining method selection open pit and underground mine design optimisation of surface and underground operations geotechnical design ventilation design project risk assessment production scheduling equipment selection cost

CHAPTER 11 Mining Technology The Federal Coal Leasing Amendments Act of 1976 charged OTA to assess the feasibility of the use of deep-mining technology on West are area strip open pit and terrace pit Area Strip Area strip is the principal surface mining technique used in the United States

Techniques of surface mining include: open-pit mining which is the recovery of materials from an open pit in the ground quarrying identical to open-pit mining except that it refers to sand stone and clay strip mining which consists of stripping surface layers off to reveal ore/seams underneath and mountaintop removal commonly associated

6 Powered shovel or drill – This is for cutting of larger boulders or rock Usually the drill is pneumatically operated and mounted on a tracked base Very often it is convertible to a backactor with the bucket replaced by the drill to gain flexibility and minimize capital input Loading shovel (Loader) Power Drill (Breaking machine) 7

SLOPE STABILITY ANALYSIS FOR OPEN PITS In the process of wall design for open pits a number of steps and levels of analyses are required from local bench design to overall stability of the walls to evaluation of the design performance and In open pit mining it is accepted to trade off some failures for steeper bench

Mine safety training saves lives In 1978 the year the Mine Safety and Health Admin-istration was established 242 miners died in mining accidents In 2012 the number of deaths had dropped to 36 Training the people who work in the mining industry – and retraining annually – helps reduce deaths injuries and illnesses

1 1 3 1 Open-pit mining Open-pit mining is a type of strip mining in which the ore deposit extends very deep in the ground necessitating the removal of layer upon layer of overburden and ore In many cases logging of trees and clear-cutting or burning of vegetation above the ore deposit may precede removal of the overburden The
