Selection of practical bench height in open pit mining

2015-9-9  Dilution versus bench height (Bozorgebrahimi et al., 2005). Figure 3. Large block of the simple sequencing method. In open pit mining, factors that can affect the degree of dilution can be regarded as deposit-related or mine-related. The bench height is a mine-related parameter that can be studied using a simple geometrical model of

Mining LKAB

The method is based on mining the ore in descending levels through drilling and blasting. The thickness of the slabs, known as the bench height, is 15 metres, and the slabs are worked downwards. Bench mining is an effective and well established mining method, which allows maximum extraction from the rock with a high degree of safety.

Open pit mining SlideShare

2017-7-31  Bench Height: The bench height is usually decided by the economic reach of the mining equipment used in the mine. As a thumb rule, a bench height is equal to the economic bucket height of an excavator (like shovel or loader) plus 3 m. The thickness of the ore body and its dip and the thickness overburden also play a deciding role in the bench

ASK MINING: Blasting Practices at Open Cast Mines

2012-3-2  For Iron ore mines:-1. Bench Height and Hole Diameter: If the bench height is 10-12m, then blast hole diameter should be 150mm, if the bench height <6m then blast hole diameter should be 100mm. In rare cases, 250mm blast holes are selected. 2.
