Cost-benefit analysis of computer-assisted mining through production and cost modeling.
Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 9281, 1991 Jan; :1-41
A mathematically simulated modeling technique is used in this U.S. Bureau of Mines report to represent a hypothetical mining operation with existing mining technology and prevalent mining costs. Mining scenarios were prepared and evaluated for potential benefits and costs available through computer-assisted mining. Base criteria, parameters, and methodology are described.
