Estimating Mining Factors (Dilution and Ore Loss) in Open ...

Jan 01, 2007  Dilution and ore loss have an important bearing on the success of open pit mining projects. Their impacts on production costs, revenues and production rate require that they are correctly modelled in the long-term mine plan. The estimation of dilution and ore loss is therefore an essential part of any Ore Reserve estimate or mine schedule.

Ore Dilution – An Underground Perspective

Mar 11, 2019  In open pit mining, ore losses are not typically given much consideration. However in underground mining they can have a great impact on the project life and economics. Mining method sketches can play a key role in understanding underground dilution and ore losses, even in today’s software driven mining world.

ore dilution and ore recovery - SlideShare

Ore Dilution Recovery in Mining Recovery and dilution usually are interrelated; with some methods of stoping a high recovery involves contamination of the ore from the walls or capping, and often clean ore can be obtained only by leaving some ore in the mine. In open-stope mines the greatest loss of ore is that tied up in pillars left for ...

5 Ways Miners can Increase Profits MEC Mining

Jan 19, 2017  1) Throw away less ore and process less dilution. Get selective when mining around the waste/ore contact. Using smaller equipment to be more selective will pay back many times over. 2) Appoint an external productivity coach to sit at the face to improve the loader and truck interface. 3) Mine the best part of the resource first.
