MINING 7073 - Mine Planning

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

The aim of the course is to present the theoretical principles and practical methodologies associated with mine planning. Mine planning is an iterative process entailing elements of design, scheduling and evaluation. As part of the planning process a range of issues have to be considered including short and long term planning, mine optimisation, cut-off grade analysis and mining valuation. The course presents principles of surface and underground mine planning and valuation for metaliferous and coal mining projects. Students will be expected to complete a project on pit optimisation including long term production scheduling and project evaluation.
