2018-4-16 · Each step of stope mining has a significant effect on the whole mining plan; therefore, it is very important to form a reasonable configuration to achieve the mining plan target. The most difficult part of underground mining operation is how to organize the production process with limited resources (i. e., equipment and materials) to accomplish a large production task.

An MILP approach to multi-location, multi-period …

In the surface mining industry, the Equipment Selection Problem involves choosing an appropriate fleet of trucks and loaders such that the long-term mine plan can be satisfied. An important characteristic for multi-location (multi-location and multi-dumpsite) mines is that the underlying problem is a multi-commodity flow problem. The problem is therefore at least as difficult as the …
