Optimum waste dump planning using Mixed Integer Programming (MIP)
MetadataShow full item record
This research project aims to optimise the long term mine rock dump planning by generating the optimum rock dumping schedules using mixed integer programming (MIP) models. Through the modelling of the problem, three new MIP models were developed and implemented in a greenfield mining project. The life of mine dumping schedules were successfully generated by the models, which focuses on minimising the haulage cost, maximising the equipment utilisation, and seeking the balance between the two.

Optimising the Long-term Mine Waste Dump Progression and Truck Hour Schedule in a Large-scale Open Pit Mine Using Mixed Integer ProgrammingLi, Y; Topal, Erkan; Ramazan, S. (2014)A mine waste dump progression plan can provide a clear outlook of the mining operation. To produce such an output requires detailed placement schedule of the mined material, including the volume (or tonnage) and the ...
