With the growing challenge of decreasing orebody grades, which is only exacerbated by mass mining larger diluted mining blocks, the mining sector is now considering ore sorting as a potential technological solution. It is still early days, but major mining companies are starting to invest in Read more... about Introducing Bulk Sorting: Its Enablers, Application, and Potential

Over the decades, with decreasing ore deposit grades, miners have turned to economies of scale and bulk mining to gain advantage. This has resulted in an inherent diluting of ore feed to the mill. However, a point is being reached for most ore deposits where the Read more... about Waste Liberation: Improving Mill Feed from a Miner's Perspective

John Mayer, D. Stead

With the increased drive towards deeper and more complex mine designs, geotechnical engineers are often forced to reconsider traditional deterministic design techniques in favour of probabilistic methods. These alternative techniques allow for the direct quantification of uncertainties within a Read more... about A Comparison of Traditional, Step-Path, and Geostatistical Techniques in the Stability Analysis of a Large Open Pit
