This presentation summarizes a talk given during the inaugural workshop of the Cave Mining Forum.

A refinement of the traditional Mine-to-Mill integration opportunity for copper block cave mines, referred to as Cave-to-Mill, will be presented. This is essentially the integration of underground mine production scheduling and monitoring with surface mineral processing management based upon fragment size and geo-metallurgical ore characteristics.
