  • Ore Mining Pillar Extraction

    Pillar Extraction Springerlink. Abstract Pillar extraction also referred to as retreat mining pillar recovery stooping pillar robbing and bord and pillar second workings is the practice of forming a series of pillars and then partially or totally extracting some or all of the pillars usually with mining operations retreating out of a panel There are a number of basic pillar extraction methods

  • Nexa Resources improves safety and ore recovery with Orica

    Aug 24, 2020· Nexa Vazante, a zinc and lead mine owned by Nexa Resources, is located in northwest Minas Gerais, Brazil. Using vertical retreat mining (VRM) and long hole open stope as the main methods for ore extraction, the mine has traditionally deployed wired initiators in the recovery of ore, typically yielding around 60% ore recovery in the pillars.

  • Hard-rock room and pillar QueensMineDesignWiki

    This way, support costs are reduced while achieving the same, if not better recovery. There are four main pillar extraction methods depending on the variation of room and pillar being used and the orebody characteristics. High grade material can be slabbed off from pillars during a retreat of the mine. Pillars can be completely removed in a retreat.

  • ore mining pillar extraction icce2018.co

    Mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials. One of such methods is the Bord and Pillar method of mining. Bord and Pillar method of mining is one of the oldest methods of mining. The success of Bord and Pillar mining is selecting the optimum pillar

  • Extracting Ores Mining Of Mineral Resources Siyavula

  • Pillar Extraction using Continuous Miners Introduction

    Some methods of pillar extraction using continuous miners are: Pillar splitting where roadways are driven through the pillars formed on first workings; the remnant pillars left would not normally be stable over extended areas. In some cases "pockets" are driven into the pillars with no supports rather than drive roads fully through.

  • Mining Underground mining Britannica

    Mining Mining Underground mining: When any ore body lies a considerable distance below the surface, the amount of waste that has to be removed in order to uncover the ore through surface mining becomes prohibitive, and underground techniques must be considered. Counting against underground mining are the costs, which, for each ton of material mined, are much higher underground than on the

  • Nexa improves safety and recovery with Orica’s WebGen

    Aug 27, 2020· Nexa Vazante uses the vertical retreat mining (VRM) and long hole open stoping mining methods and has traditionally used wired initiators, which recover approximately 60% of the ore in pillars. The single-blast event achieved a smaller hydraulic radius by keeping the pillar during stope extraction

  • WO2015056201A1 Pillar extraction mining method Google

    Disclosed is a method of mining or extracting a support pillar from an underground room and pillar mining operation which includes forming (by eg forming top and bottom wedge shaped cuts) at least one removable segment in a pillar (7) and moving (eg pulling) the segment substantially intact from its original location (10A) to a mining position (10C) distal from its original location
