Assessment of backbreak due to blasting operation in open

Mar 25, 2016 One of the major problems related to blasting operations in open pit mines is the formation of cracks on the benches behind the last row of blast holes (backbreak). Prediction of backbreak plays an important role in the safety of open pit mining and the reduction of the detrimental effects resulting from blasting operations. In this study, we have tried to develop predictive models for ...

Metallic Sulfide Mining Sierra Club

Many metallic sulfide mines are open pit mines, meaning companies kill forests and vegetation by bulldozing expansive swaths of land, before digging large craters to excavate the minerals. In fact, more than 80 percent of copper operations in the United States use open pit mining. Because it involves clearing vast natural areas, it reduces ...

Mining Methods 19 An open pit mine is developed as a series of nested pits, each larger in area than the previous pit. A pushback is the removal of material required to proceed from one pit to the next. The revenue from the ore must pay for the cost of excavating the waste from the pushback and for excavating the ore.

For small capacity mines, 40% of the capital cost of the large capacity mine is used based on trends seen in the capital cost calculation for refining. The variable portion of the cost calculation is based on the open pit mining models published by the USGS, which take into account several factors that affect capital expenditures (Camm, 1991).
