Open pit mining glory holes
The orebody is drilled and blasted above the undercut, and the ore is removed via the haulage access. This allows for greater recovery as less ore is left behind in pillars. Metal prices, machinery, and milling methods are constantly changing so that the larger operations must be periodically reevaluated, and several have been completely redeveloped from time to time as entirely different kinds of mining and milling operations. California's Monticello Dam was built in the s and was designed to provide water for local farms and, in after the construction of the Monticello Dam Power Plant, power the North Bay area of San Francisco.

The future of solution mining appears promising, for there is constant improvement in equipment, solvent, and in technology of breaking rock in place and controlling the movements of fluids through it.
On a more Nude erotic softcore girls scale, in-place leaching has been applied to fill in old mine stopes, caved areas over block caving operations underground, and in peripheral portions of conventional open pits where the grade is too low to permit mining the material.
This method is similar to cut and fill mining with the exception that after being blasted, broken ore is left in the stope Open pit mining glory holes it is used to support the surrounding rock and as a platform from which to work.

Mining is usually done by track-mounted electric shovels in the large operations, and by rubber-tired diesel front-end loaders in the smaller operations. Few deposits are left unmined in the western United States, where sluicing might be Group swinger pic at present gold prices.

Where it is possible to plan ahead for leaching, the following operations are standard practice:

Description:Other factors influencing the choice between open-pit and underground methods may be inferred from the advantages and disadvantages of open-pit mining, some of which are listed below. Once grouted the friction increases by a factor of Because large placer deposits can be thoroughly explored before floating the dredge, such operations lend themselves to thorough planning, and it is possible to do a considerable amount of reclamation at only slight increase in overall operating costs. Not all excavations require local ground support. Glory holes were opened, likewise, in the upper Fairview ore body , where closely spaced parallel veins with some mineralization between them made this method preferable to more expensive selective mining methods. Area ground support[ edit ] Area ground support is used to prevent major ground failure.
