The open-pit mine production scheduling problem has received a great deal of attention in recent years, both in the academic literature, and in the mining industry. Optimization approaches to strategic planning for mine exploitation have become the industry standard, as the recent review of Newman et al. [19] highlights. However most of these approaches focus on extraction sequencing, and don’t consider the material flow after mining. In particular, the use of stockpiling to manage processing… CONTINUE READING
