Choice of Method - Welcome to the Narrow-Vein Mining …

The ideal drilling length of approximately 15 m (49 ft) is restrained due to the narrowness of the vein and the hole deviation. Problem Between Levels 7 and 8, the spacing is 85 m (279 ft), which: extends the required time to mine a stope and to fully recover the ore stockpile; and

Anaconda investigates narrow-vein tech - Mining Magazine

Federal and provincial funding will offset the technical and financial risks of developing and optimising a narrow-vein mining system for use in steeply dipping narrow gold veins. If successfully developed, this technology has the potential to be used for similar mineral properties owned by Anaconda and other gold deposits throughout Atlantic ...

Narrow Vein Mining Fit for the Future - Novamera

This consists of a network of very narrow, steeply dipping veins which aren't conducive to economic recovery through conventional selective mining methods. However, following its presentation at the Disrupt Mining event in 2019, the team realized that SMD could benefit many other operations too. Read the Full Article all news Meet the Foresight 50

stopes for narrow-vein vertical mining methods - Deswik

stopes for narrow-vein vertical mining methods Designed specifically for use in narrow vein, steeply dipping ore bodies, Deswik.ASD quickly generates detailed stope shapes that are traditionally designed manually. Working from a geological block model, the tool automates the process of generating sectional slices through the ore body.

Silvercorp Metals Inc. - Mining 101

There are several mining methods that can be used for narrow, steeply-dipping veins like those at our Ying and GC operations. The most cost-effective narrow vein mining technique is shrinkage stoping. This approach allows the development of large stopes, thereby reducing the amount of development required relative to stope volumes.

Challenges Faced by Narrow Vein Graphite Mining and ...

Carbon rich graphite deposits found in Sri Lanka are of inorganic origin and they occur as narrow steeply dipping veins. The vein width of these deposits varies from a few centimetres to metres, with an average vein thickness of 1 m. It is believed that the carbon rich fluid intruded into fracture zones under high pressure and the temperature has crystallised into graphite.

Choice of Method - Welcome to the Narrow-Vein Mining Project

Veins mined by these methods typically range from 0.20 m to 2 m (0.65 to 6.5 ft) and are usually higher grade material. Mucking is accomplished by the use of appropriate sized slusher. Shrinkage mining is practised in ore zones that are steeply dipping and …

Narrow Vein Mining Fit for the Future | E & MJ

Backfill plays a major role in narrow vein mining by providing support and stabilizing the ground. It can increase recovery and help avoid leaving voids unfilled. Using paste fill also reduces the quantity of tailings that need to be stored in surface impounds, which is better for the environment, less risky and reduces waste management costs.
