Cost-benefit analysis of computer-assisted mining through production and cost modeling.
1991 SME Annual Meeting, February 25-28, 1991, Denver, Colorado. Littleton, CO: Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration, preprint 91-197; :1-13
A mathematically simulated modeling technique is used in this U.S. Bureau of Mines paper to represent a hypothetical mining operation with existing mining technology and prevalent mining costs. Mining scenarios are prepared and evaluated for potential benefits and costs available through computer-assisted mining. Base criteria, parameters, and methodology are described.
