  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

  It is well-established that the response surface methodology (RSM) is commonly employed to establish the differences between the predicted values and those observed experimentally. This study mainly goals on the impact of four drilling factors including weight on the bit (WOB), the rotating rapidity ...  Read More
