A generalized mathematical model for integrated production planning in drift-and-fill mining operation

Mehdi Rahmanpour; Golpari Norozi; Hassan Bakhshandeh Amnieh

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 15 May 2024


  Drift-and-fill mining is a variation of cut-and-fill mining method. Drift-and-fill mining method refers to the excavation of several parallel drifts in ore. Excavation of a new drift could start when its adjacent drifts are backfilled or not excavated. The amount of ore material and its grade depends ...  Read More

Evaluation of Underground Mineable Reserve in Presence of Grade and Commodity Price Uncertainties

M. Shenavar; M. Ataee-pour; M. Rahmanpour

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 385-396


  The uncertainty-based mine evaluation and optimization have been regarded as a critical issue. However, it has received less attention in the underground mines than in the open-pit mines due to the diversity of the underground mining methods, and the underground mining parameters' complexity. The grade ...  Read More

A New Mathematical Model for Production Scheduling in Sub-level Caving Mining Method

M. Shenavar; M. Ataee-pour; M. Rahmanpour

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 765-778


  Production scheduling in underground mines is still a manual process, and achieving a truly optimal result through manual scheduling is impossible due to the complexity of the scheduling problems. Among the underground mining methods, sub-level caving is a common mining method with a high production ...  Read More
