  Rock blast production rate (BPR) is one of the most crucial factors in the evaluation of mine project's performance. In order to improve the production of a limestone mine, the blast design parameters and image analysis results are used in this work to evaluate the BPR. Additionally, the effect of rock ...  Read More

  Overburden material is typically removed in surface mining operations to expose the primary ore deposit. Because of the presence of trace minerals, environmental pollution and acid drainage are caused when the overburdened materials are removed from the mine site and transported to another location. ...  Read More
