Surface mining

2019-10-13 · "Strip mining" is the practice of mining a seam of mineral, by first removing a long strip of overlying soil and rock (the overburden).It is most commonly used to mine coal and lignite (brown coal).Strip mining is only practical when the ore body to be excavated is relatively near the surface.

2019-10-15 · An ore is a natural occurrence of rock or sediment that contains sufficient minerals with economically important elements, typically metals, that can be economically extracted from the deposit.[1] The ores are extracted at a profit from the earth through mining; they are then refined (often via smelting) to extract the valuable element or ...

Transition from Open Pit to Underground Mine

2019-9-12 · Many ore deposits extend vertically, a fact which is not always known at the start of mining. If initial mining is by opencast methods and ore reserves are proven to greater depths, the pits are often planned to go deeper than originally envisaged. In such cases, surface plants and critical underground facilities -conveyor tunnels, access ramps, ore passes, hoisting, and ventilation shafts

Mining

Mining Mining Surface mining: It has been estimated that more than two-thirds of the world's yearly mineral production is extracted by surface mining. There are several types of surface mining, but the three most common are open-pit mining, strip mining, and quarrying. These differ from one another in the mine geometries created, the techniques used, and the minerals produced.
