Design Optimization of Safety Benches for Surface

2020-9-25  that come into play in the design of the bench width are numerous, making for a difficult problem. Geology, blasting, safety, pit design, hydrology, acceptable risk, reserve estimation, cost, and many other factors impact the chosen bench width. The complicated problem has therefore led to minimally engineered designs.

Economic evaluation of optimum bench height in quarries

2009-8-26  economical bench height has been suggested to be 12 m (Lechner, 1971). Today, bench height can be designed up to 15 m in large quarries, while it can be 12 m in small ones. Moreover, in small open pit gold mines it is feasible to design bench heights up to 7.5 m since it requires selective mining and the achievement of less dilution (Hustrulid and

Design Optimization of Safety Benches for Surface

Proper bench design is important for preventing rockfall related accidents and injuries without wasting the reserves held in the benches. An in depth analysis has been performed using the results from 230 rockfall tests conducted at two surface quarries. The goal of this project is to give practitioners the tools they need for improved bench ...

Surface mining planning and design of open pit mining

2016-1-9  So the overall pit slope is lesser the inter-ramp slope. In the example, almost 50% more tonnage must be moved to mine the same pit bottom. In the early design of a pit a lesser pit slope can be used to allow for the road system. The pit in Fig. 5 was designed with an overall slope of 380. The overall slope to use will depend on the width ...
