Geostatistics-Based Method for Irregular Mineral Resource ...

 · The reserve estimation of mineral deposits is an important task in mining projects. This depends on how well the applied method fits with the mineral resource complexities of the ore body formation (Afeni et al. 2020).So, the productivity is closely related to the quantitative and qualitative estimation, during the pre-project stage (Zerzour et al. 2020).

Mining

The method is based on mining the ore in descending levels through drilling and blasting. The thickness of the slabs, known as the bench height, is 15 metres, and the slabs are worked downwards. Bench mining is an effective and well established mining method, which allows maximum extraction from the rock with a high degree of safety.

Iron Ore Processing

Iron ore is the key raw material for steel production enterprises. Generally, iron ore with a grade of less than 50% needs to be processed before smelting and utilization. After crushing, grinding, magnetic separation, flotation, and gravity separation, etc., iron is gradually selected from the natural iron ore.

The Four Main Methods of Mining

 · The solution gets to work and dissolves the ore before being pumped back into the surface to undergo processing. This method of mining allows for the extraction of salts and metals from an ore body without resorting to conventional mining methods such as underground mining. There are plenty of advantages to using in-situ mining.

Tungsten element extraction method – surface mining technique

The method of underground mining is done by slashing out the ore which is generally cost-effective. The miners will drill directly into the tungsten ore deposit to carve out large chunks of the ore. Otherwise the room-and-pillar mining method involves carving out rooms of the ore, while leaving across many pillars to support the roof.
