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

Determination of the largest pit with the non-negative net profit in the open pit mines

J. Gholamnejad; A.R. Mojahedfar

Volume 1, Number 2 , July 2010


  The determination of the Ultimate Pit Limit (UPL) is the first step in the open pit mine planning process. In this stage that parts of the mineral deposit that are economic to mine are determined. There are several mathematical, heuristic and meta-heuristic algorithms to determine UPL. The optimization ...  Read More
