Abstract This paper describes a method for optimising the layout of a decline in an underground mine. It models a decline as a mathematical network connecting the access points at each level of the proposed mine to the surface portal. A feasible decline is one satisfying all operational constraints such as gradient and turning radius requirements. The task is to find the decline that minimises a given cost objective. Typically, the cost objective will be some combination of development and… Expand
