Hard rock cutting technologies for mining

Mechanical Hard Rock Mining. Mechanisation of mining operations has been of interest for decades to improve productivity and reduce cost. However, in hard rock mining applications, this has been impeded by the limitations of the existing mechanical rock fragmentation capabilities, being constrained power, limited strength of mechanical components and short cutter life.

Extraction of ResourcesGeology Lumen Learning

Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner.. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material

Pillar design QueensMineDesignWiki

Post pillars are used in cut-and-fill mining and they provide immediate support to the roof while enabling reasonably high extraction ratio. As the mining progresses, the pillars become more slender. This causes the stability to decrease during the first few cuts. Post pillars are designed to fail gradually with increasing height.
