Investigating and Ranking Blasting Patterns to Reduce Ground Vibration using Soft Computing Approaches and MCDM Technique

D. Mohammadi; R. Mikaeil; J. Abdollahei Sharif

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 881-897


  The blasting method is one of the most important operations in most open-pit mines that has a priority over the other mechanical excavation methods due to its cost-effectiveness and flexibility in operation. However, the blasting operation, especially in surface mines, imposes some environmental problems ...  Read More

A Hybrid Fuzzy MCDM Approach to Determine an Optimal Block Size in Open-Pit Mine Modeling: a Case Study

J. Abdollahei Sharif; A. Jafarpour; S. Yousefi

Volume 11, Issue 2 , April 2020, , Pages 611-627


  The computer-based 3D modeling of ore bodies is one of the most important steps in the resource estimation, grade determination, and production scheduling of open-pit mines. In the modeling phase, the volume of the orebody model is required to be filled by the blocks and sub-blocks. The determination ...  Read More

Determination of geochemical anomalies and gold mineralized stages based on litho-geochemical data for Zarshuran Carlin-like gold deposit (NW Iran) utilizing multi-fractal modeling and stepwise factor analysis

F. Aliyari; P. Afzal; J. Abdollahi Sharif

Volume 8, Issue 4 , October 2017, , Pages 593-610


  The Zarshuran Carlin-like gold deposit is located at the Takab Metallogenic belt in the northern part of the Sanandaj-Sirjan zone, NW Iran. The high-grade ore bodies are mainly hosted by black shale and cream to gray massive limestone along the NNE-trending extensional fault/fracture zones. The aim of ...  Read More
