General Information

Overview

In this unit knowledge and skills will be developed to determine optimum pit limits, bench geometry, haul road design, slope stability and equipment selection for surface mining operations. While for underground mining students will learn to determine suitable access to orebodies, mining methods, level spacings, material handling systems, ground support methods, and ventilation systems. Australian mining laws are reviewed to assess their impact on the mine planning and design processes for coal and metalliferous mining in surface and underground mining operations. Students will also determine the constraints between different mining activities that will impact on mine scheduling. They will use forums, reflective journals and workbooks to demonstrate an effective and professional level of teamwork, communication and support for collaborative peer group learning. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.
