This bulk underground mining method involves mining large amounts of material from a single stope similar to cut and fill, this method starts at the bottom of a level and moves upward. Ore is removed from the bottom, and then more ore is blasted from a higher level that falls to the same level to be removed, with the process repeating up the orebody.
28-8-2002· Underground hard rock mining refers to various underground mining techniques used to excavate hard minerals, usually those containing metals such as ore containing gold, silver, iron, copper, zinc, nickel, tin and lead, but also involves using the same techniques for excavating ores of gems such as diamonds or rubies. Soft rock mining refers to excavation of softer minerals such as salt, coal
Primary Methods of Underground Mining . Sub Level Caving: It is currently one of the most innovative mining methods in the industry. This method of mining is usually implemented when it is no longer viable to mine in an open mine. The procedure involves drilling vertically downwards directly into the ore.
1. Underground Mining Methods 1.1. Classification of Underground Mining Methods Mineral production in which all extracting operations are conducted beneath the ground surface is termed underground mining. Underground mining methods are usually employed when the depth of the deposit and/or the waste to ore ratio (stripping ratio) are too great
Underground Mining Methods Glossary Bolting drilling a hole, and inserting a bolt to strengthen the ceiling and walls of an underground mine Crusher a machine used to crush ore before it is transported Drift a horizontal underground tunnel that follows a vein or ore body

Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the Earth, usually from an ore body, lode, vein, seam, reef or placer deposit.These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay.

Mining Mining Underground mining: When any ore body lies a considerable distance below the surface, the amount of waste that has to be removed in order to uncover the ore through surface mining becomes prohibitive, and underground techniques must be considered. Counting against underground mining are the costs, which, for each ton of material mined, are much higher underground than on
Design in narrow vein mining Underground Design Methods 2015, Perth, Australia 297 the hydrogeology condition is low to moderate and does not have a significant effect on underground mining. 2.3 Rock mass quality and maximum exposed area of roof 2.3.1 Rock mass quality evaluation
9-3-2018· Once an ore has been probed to be economically viable, and a pre-feasibility study has been conducted to classify the economically viable mineral volume as measured, indicated, and inferred resources, the most appropriate mining method needs to be selected based on the characteristics of the ore, such as dip size, shape of ore body, and strength of ore body.
appropriate mining method is selected based on technical, economic, and environmentally accountable considerations. The first step in selecting the most appropriate mining method is to compare the economic efficiency of extraction of the deposit by surface and underground mining methods . This section reviews surface mining methods and
17-10-2019· Undergrounds mining is still, even after hundreds of years of safety improvements, a dangerous and expensive business. It’s wise for an investor to understand both the basic workings for an underground mine and the risks associated with underground mining.
Mining Mining Blasthole stoping: When the dip of a deposit is steep (greater than about 55°), ore and waste strong, ore boundaries regular, and the deposit relatively thick, a system called blasthole stoping is used. A drift is driven along the bottom of the ore body, and this is eventually enlarged into the shape of a trough. At the end of the trough, a raise is driven to the drilling
