Worley out to help miners on their open pit to

14/09/2020· The De Beers Venetia Mine in South Africa is the biggest source of rough diamonds in the country, according to Worley. The mine is in the process of transitioning from open pit to underground, to extend its life by some 25 years.

Open Pit To Underground Transition Cave Mining Forum

SRK carried out a scoping study on an existing open pit operation (12 Mtpa) that is soon to be reaching a depth where the mine will need to transition to a large-scale underground mining method. The goal was to provide production continuity at a rate that will still be suitable to maximise use of the existing surface processing facilities.

Planning Considerations For Transition From Open Pit To

Transition from open pit to underground mining often risks mud rushes (if mud forming minerals are present), and from sumps and surface dams. Air blasts can result from underground collapses or mud rushes. The presence of an abandoned pit above can lead to

(PDF) Transition from Open-Pit to Underground as a New

In this manner, the most sensitive problem is the determination of the optimal transition depth from open-pit to underground or vice versa. To calculate this depth, a model based on block economic...

Transition from Open Pit to Underground Mine

Key considerations to evaluate are: open pit stability, shaft stability, dilution, mud rushes and air blasts, and mining method selection. Planning Considerations: The efficient transition from open pit mining to an underground operation requires extensive planning. For a large mining operation, planning could last as long as 20 years. The main factors and activities that need to be taken into

From open pit to underground emileboulangeriefine

Open Pit to Underground Crown Pillar Often when there is a deposit near surface with a considerable vertical extent, a combination of open-pit and underground mining will be used. These deposits will generally be exploited first by open-pit, due to the increased production capacity and safety, as well as the decreased capital and operating costs in comparison to underground. South Africa's

Optunimizer Optimal Transition from Open-pit to

Open-Pit to Underground Transition Optimiser Do you have a near-surface deposit with considerable vertical extent that has the potential to be mined by a combined method of open-pit and underground mining? As the reserve in an open-pit gets depleted, many medium to large open-pit mines face challenges in determining the best cut-over point from open-pit

Transition from open-pit to underground in the case of

The economic block model of the deposit was used to determine the transition from open-pit to underground mining. The transition depth determination process was mathematically modelled for the case study. The objective function was chosen to be the maximization of the total profits earned from the combination of both open-pit and underground mining of the deposit. Chah-Gaz transition problem

Brummer*, Hao Li* & Allan Moss♦ *Itasca Consulting Canada Inc., ♦Rio Tinto Limited ABSTRACT At the Palabora Mine, the transition to caving 400 m below the bottom of the 800 m deep pit resulted in a slope failure of the North wall that began in 2003, and is

Transition from Open Pit to Underground Mine

Transition from open pit to underground mining often risks mud rushes (if mud forming minerals are present), and from sumps and surface dams. Air blasts can result from underground collapses or mud rushes. The presence of an abandoned pit above can lead to greater risks of dilution and mud rushes. The choice of underground mining method affects the surface; and stability requirements may

Optimising Open Pit to Underground Cut-over: Part Two

As the underground mine operates at a higher cut-off grade than the open pit, it will deliver a higher grade and normally higher cashflow for the same throughput. Therefore there is likely a discounted cash flow to benefit generating this cash-flow early that may elevate the optimal transition point. The only way to test this is to complete schedules (which include open-ut and underground

Study on the Ground Movement in an Open-Pit Mine in

The combined surface and underground mining method is typically used in an open-pit mine for better production and profits. However, the improved scale of mining operations at the combined mining conditions results in even more intensive strata movement and massive ground damages. This paper assesses the progressive development of the characteristics of roof movement with the longwall face
