  • Open Pit and Underground Mines Design, Optimization

    Our expertise extends to mining engineering at the design and operation stage for open and underground mines. We use sophisticated tools and proven methods that improve the optimization and planning of operations, always in regard to the individual characteristics of the mineral deposit and of the operational context of the mine.

  • Mine planning and optimization techniques used in

    Optimization of cut-off grade is now an accepted principle for open pit planning studies. The most commonly criteria used in cut-off grade optimization is to maximize net present value. Lane formulated the concept of cut-off grade optimization for single metal deposit but this method cannot be use in multiple metal deposits.

  • Optimization of the transition from open

    optimization of the transition from open-pit to underground operation has become an important challenge in mining engineering. Optimally, to model the transition problem on the basis of maximization of the profit from open-pit and underground mining, (0-1) integer programming has been used. In this method, block economic values of open-pit and

  • 24. Pit Optimization – How I View It

    One of the first steps in open pit mine design is the completion of a pit optimization analysis. Pit optimisation is used to define the most profitable pit shell (or nested pit shells) for a given set of economic parameters. The economic parameters generally include the metal prices, process recoveries, and operating costs.
