In open-pit mining, different designs are created, such as optimal ultimate pit limit and production planning. In order to determine the ultimate pit limit, two approaches are generally used based on geological and economic block models. In this paper, according to the long-
and processing capacity. Sevim and Lei 10 described open pit ultimate limits, the cut-off grade, the mining sequence, and the production rate interactions. The methodology in their study based on a combination of optimum mining sequence, ore and waste production ultimate pit limits, and mine life. In all possible sequences,
Pit Limit is the maximum vertical and lateral extent which may be excavated economically in an open pit mine. Pit Slope is the angle from the horizontal which the wall of a open pit stands as measured from crest to toe. Spoil is the overburden or non-ore material removed in gaining access to the ore.
mining method open-pit or underground. This constraint allows a block to be left in form of waste or in the crown pillar. It also ensures that if a waste block is located within the open-pit limit or underground layout, it inevitably has to be mined. According to inequality 2, these constraints can be

Open pit mining is an important general mining method that mineral deposit will be mined via pits. The shape of mining area at the end of mining operation or final limits of a mine must be designed before starting the operation. According to the designed final pit limits, mining operational
Pit or quarry includes any excavation, pit, bank or open cut working for the extraction of stone, rock, gravel, sand or any other mineral and shall embrace any and all parts of the property of such quarry or open pit mine that contribute directly or indirectly to the extraction of such mineral. Shall means a mandatory requirement.

May 25, 2018 Traditional Cutoff Grades in Open Pit Mining. Consider a hypothetical case study where an epithermal gold deposit will be mined by an open pit Table 1 gives the grade distribution of the material within the ultimate pit limits of this deposit. Table 2 gives assumed capacities and accepted costs to mine this deposit at 3000 tonsday milling rate.

Determining an optimum long term production schedule is an important part of the planning process of any open pit mine however, the associated optimization problem is demanding and hard to deal with, as it involves large datasets and multiple hard and soft constraints which makes it a large combinatorial optimization problem. In this paper a procedure has been proposed to apply a relatively ...
Planning and design procedure of an open pit mining project just can be started after ultimate pit determination. In the carried out study in this paper it was shown that the most important factor in ultimate pit determination and in consequence in the whole planning and design procedure of an open pit mine is the metal price. Metal price fluctuations in recent years were exaggerated and ...

May 01, 2019 Ultimate pit limit is an important aspect of open pit mining. The optimal ultimate outline determines the tonnage of extractable ore, the volume of waste to be removed, the location of the subsidiary facilities, the location of ore and waste stockpiles, the life time of the mine and the estimated net present value NPV of the entire mining operation.
