Mine Gold Ore Stockpile Blending

  • The importance of coarse-ore stockpile design.

    This is the ideal case; however, we have observed that in some large mining projects (recent and not so recent), the coarse ore stockpile has been designed without proper consideration of the ore's flow properties. In most of these cases the result has been rathole formation, live capacities much lower than the desired value, and, as a consequence, the need for bulldozers or other mechanical

  • Ore Stockpiling – Why are we doing this again?

    Blending: Blending stockpiles may be used where a processing plant needs a certain quality of feed material with respect to head grade or contaminant ratios (silica, iron, etc.). Blending stockpiles enables the operator to ensure the plant feed quality to be within a consistent range.

    Coming back to the coarse ore stockpile example, Putt recommends hard-rock miners add another filter to their existing blending process to help improve results. "It is about adding a mill risk factor to an existing grade control program; getting the engineers to plan the mining regime in a certain way to effectively prepare the mill for the material being fed into the coarse ore stockpile

  • Role of pre-crusher stockpiling for grade control

    Whereas this design suits the mining process and is operationally simple, there can be little confidence in the grade of the ore that is fed to the crusher. This makes short-term grade control difficult and reconciliation back to the mine face imprecise. Well-designed and operated pre-crusher stockpiles can overcome these deficiencies. The different types of grade variability in mining are

    The ore to be milled is managed through a number of stockpiles that receive ore of different metallurgical character and of different grade ranges and thus allow blending of the mill feed. A gyratory crusher reduces the ore to minus 15-20 centimetres. The ore is then fed to a coarse ore stockpile from which it is reclaimed for grinding, first to a semi-autogenous ("SAG") mill and then to a
