INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY OF EXPANDING THE BOUNDARIES OF EFFICIENT APPLICATION OF THE OPEN CAST MINING METHOD

World Mining Congress
Balanced development of mining works at all the benches of a working zone by use of the excavator-automobile complex is achieved by transition to the technology of the bench excavating with cross panels by the two-sub-bench scheme with the changing levels of the working platforms (is patented in Kazakhstan). In deep quarries realization of this technology will allow to reduce the current volumes of the stripping ore excavation by 10–15 % and more, to increase the opened reserves of minerals by 20–50 % to decrease volume of mining-capital works for construction of stripping excavations by 2–4 times and to provide efficient use of powerful excavator-automobile complexes.
