Abstract Planning and design procedure of an open pit mining project just can be started after ultimate pit determination In the carried out study in this paper it was shown that the most important factor in ultimate pit determination and in consequence in the whole planning and design procedure of an open pit mine is the metal price...
Slope design is an integral part of the engineering of an open pit regardless of its size Most cases the slope angles are a key component dictating the economic viability of a proposed or current mining project This has resulted in open pit mining operating with much lower Factor of Safety tolerances that would be used in civil engineering...
The selection of physical design parameters and the scheduling of the ore and waste extraction program are complex engineering decisions of enormous economic significance The planning of an open pit mine is therefore basically an exercise in economics constrained by certain geologic and mining engineering aspects Open pit mines can be...
