Blasting is widely used in mining operations as the primary comminution process to reduce the in-situ rock into fragmented material suitable for the subsequent transport and processing. The energy used is released from an explosive by detonation and transferred to the rock mass via a shock front...
Collecting information is of vital importance for the development of a mineral project. The capital costs of mining projects are high and there is significant risk due to the available data. At all stages of a project, from exploration to mine closure, decisions need to be made that are based off...
An Improved Approach to Production Planning in Oil Sands Mining Through Detailed Analysis and Simulation of Cycle TimesDownload
The objective of this thesis is to develop, implement and verify a theoretical framework based on detailed analyses and simulation of truck and shovel cycle times in open pit mining, placing an emphasis on the hauling component of the cycle. The goal is to improve the generation of accurate and...
Canada has one of the world’s highest greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per capita among developed countries and was the 10th largest global GHG emitter in 2017. Consistent with the Paris Agreement’s goal of controlling the temperature increase by 2°C to 1.5°C, Canada aims to reduce GHG emissions by...
Discrete event simulation is a stochastic mathematical modeling tool. In modern mining operations maximizing the productivity by effective decision making is essential. Discrete event simulation is used to conduct “what if” analysis supporting mining engineers and management in decision making....
Design, Simulation and Evaluation of Effective Industrial Information Systems: Case of Machine Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Management Information SystemsDownload
Industrial information systems can improve the management of industrial operations by providing relevant and timely information on the status of physical assets via condition and process monitoring systems, and by enabling the effective use of data by systems and processes that restore proper...
