What is open-cut mining? Oresome Resources

Open-cut mining is one method used to extract these minerals from the earth. Open-cut mining is used when the minerals are found over a large area and relatively close to the surface. The open cut mine is dug downwards in benches or steps which slope towards the centre of the pit. To uncover the minerals the land is first cleared of vegetation as

Opencast Mining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The open pit or open cast mining method is the obvious choice for a property with a wide area of mineralization exposed or existing close to the surface and continuing to greater depths. The open pit exposes the orebody from the surface by separate removal of ore and associated waste rocks.

Mining and the Environment Parliament of NSW

Open cut mining is the main extraction method in the Hunter Valley. This involves scraping off overburden and digging out a pit to recover the coal. This can result in a whole different set of environmental impacts compared to underground mining. Open cut mining can have major impacts on streams, alluvial aquifers and alluvial soils.

Opencast Mining (Quarrying): Methods, Advantages

Opencast mining is also known as open-put mining, open-cut mining, surface mining and also as strip mining, the later term being commonly used in the U.S.A. for opencast mining of coal. The overburden and the mineral, coal, are excavated in long strips of a few metres thickness and hence the operations are termed strip mining.

Open Cut and Underground Mining iMINCO

When minerals and deposits are found close to the surface and spread across a large distance, the best way to mine is to use the open cut mining method. In this process, the area is cleared of all topsoil and vegetation, this material is stockpiled and used later when rehabilitating the area once mining is finished.
