• What is grade control and how can it save you time?

    2015-8-14 · Grade control stops businesses from running at a loss. Milling. The milling process is designed to be as efficient as possible by being performed at a specific grade. When mining in a high-grade zone, it is possible for some of the metal to be lost unless it is blended with low grade

  • Grade Control SpringerLink

    Abstract. In some mining operations, one of the most important roles played by the geologist is the supervision of grade control. In an open-pit operation, this involves the sampling of blast-hole cuttings produced by down-the-hole hammer drills and the classification of bench reserves into ore, low grade or waste material, or into various metallurgical types.

Well, there are many factors such as human operator performance and weather, but one of the key differences is a lack of control on the input materials. For the mining industry, the input materials are the in-situ rock mass. Most industrial processes have

    DevelopmentSelection ConsiderationsPlanningInfrastructure RequirementsCase StudiesThe time taken to establish caving operations varies, and it is not uncommon to take a period of at least 10 years from the time of study commencement to achieving project approval. For some large-scale planned caving operations, studies have been under way for more than 20 years with a final decision still yet to be made. The early stages of a block cave development involve a high level of construction activity, as the undercut and extraction infrastructure is created to last for the life of the ore body. During the co

    2019-11-5 · Ore deposits are inconsistent in nature, having high concentrations of metals in one area but much lower concentrations in others. Mining geologists perform ore grade control in underground mining operations to figure out where the most profitable ore bodies are, in terms of location and mineral concentration variability. By performing ore grade control, mining operators are also reducing risk

  • Ore Stockpiling Why are we doing this again?

    2016-4-28 · Grade Optimization: This stockpiling approach is used in situations where the mine delivers more ore than is required by the plant, thereby allowing the best grades to be processed directly while lower grades are stockpiled for a future date. Possibly one or more grade stockpiles may be used, for example a low grade and a medium-low grade
