Open-pit mining - Wikipedia

Open-pit mining, also known as mega-mining, open-cast or open cut mining, is a surface mining technique of extracting rock or minerals from the earth by their removal from an open-air pit, sometimes known as a borrow.. This form of mining differs from extractive methods that require tunnelling into the earth, such as long wall mining.Open-pit mines are used when deposits of commercially useful ...

Jan 21, 2012  The final pit limits in mining can be defined as the limits of the deposit up to which it is economically feasible to mine. Lerchs and Grossmann’s algorithm (LG) based on graph theory (Lerchs and Grossmann 1965 ) and Maxflow algorithm based on network flow concept (Johnson 1968 ) are the most commonly used methods in practice.

Mathematical relationship between ultimate pit limits ...

May 01, 2019  Ultimate pit limit is an important aspect of open pit mining. The optimal ultimate outline determines the tonnage of extractable ore, the volume of waste to be removed, the location of the subsidiary facilities, the location of ore and waste stockpiles, the life time of the mine and the estimated net present value (NPV) of the entire mining operation.
