Pit Mining Operations Using Simulation

  • Published 2010


TIte complexity of modem open pit load-haul-dump systems is described, and the peed for realistic woooog models is pointcd out. Both slandacd and probabilislic simulation proo:dures are discussed, probabmsticsimulation being indlCllled as the more powelful and praclic!l1 (cehnique. Acquisition of the necessary pit operating data require<! for !imulator construction and general modelling procedures are described. Finally. results from a typical open pit simulator are used to indicate the scope of the teclmiquc.
