Open Pit Gold Mining Costs

Not surprisingly, average energy unit costs by source vary among the nine open-pit mines. Energy source (e.g. electricity) 2.2.3 Analysis: Open-Pit Mining Operations The open-pit mining operations were subdivided into 10 stages of production and three support activities. These categories are illustrated below. 1 9 $/kWh Drilling Blasting Excavating

    Nov 30, 2020 Kingsrose’s Way Linggo mine in Indonesia was the world’s highest-grade open pit gold mine in Q1 2020 (based on gold grade in milled ore). The grade or concentration of a mineral or metal in ore directly affects costs associated with mining as well as its subsequent beneficiation and extraction of precious components

    Apr 09, 2017 The cost of this preparatory work is obviously a charge against the cost of mining the ore, each ton of which must bear its proportionate share. As the stripping-ore ratio (volume or tons of overburden and capping to tons of ore made available for open-pit mining) increases, obviously the cost of stripping per ton of ore increases

    Typical open cut grades. Gold is generally extracted in open-pit mines at 1 to 5 ppm (parts per million) but in certain cases, 0.75 ppm gold is economical. This was achieved by bulk heap leaching at the Peak Hill mine in western New South Wales, near Dubbo, Australia.. Nickel, generally as laterite, is extracted via open-pit down to 0.2%. Copper can be extracted at grades as low as 0.11% to 0.2%

    Environmental Risks of Mining

    Open pit mining. Open pit mining, where material is excavated from an open pit, is one of the most common forms of mining for strategic minerals. This type of mining is particularly damaging to the environment because strategic minerals are often only available in small concentrations, which increases the amount of ore needed to be mined

    In general, underground mining is more expensive than open pit mining as with open pit mining the minerals are found near the surface at a maximum of approximately 200-400 meters depth in bulk tonnage.. The mining costs are estimated in a mining company’s feasibility study which, when available, can be found on the company’s website (often hidden between the news releases)
