Orebody Modelling and Strategic Mine Planning 2009

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2009

The Orebody Modelling and Strategic Mine Planning 2009 Conference Proceedings had as its theme 'old and new dimensions in a changing world'. The volume contains over 35 papers and groups them according to key themes. The opening section of this contains papers which examine global optimisation, mining optimisation and management of multiple objectives, risk quantification, joint effects of metal and market uncertainties in mine design, lessons learned and old and new paradigms. A section on New High-Order Conditional Simulation Methods of Geology and Applications stresses new developments for modelling orebodies. A group of papers on Mining Optimisation and Case Studies complements the previous section, stressing case studies involving different commodities.

The papers themed under the topic Large-Scale Integrated Applications include both major case studies using new technologies and new approaches, and their application. Uncertainty Models and Recoverable Reserves is a section focused on the related issues underpinning the sustainability of the mining industry and includes new, state-of-the-art simulation approaches and case studies. Optimisation is Moving Underground reflects a rapid growth in the application of optimisation approaches in various aspects of underground mining. The final section of this volume deals with the changing world. It stresses major applications and frameworks for stochastic mine planning, and extends to optimising under the joint uncertainty of metal, markets and mining, as well as newest state-of-the-art simulation approaches with applications.
