Saprolite open pit dewatering

Hi all,

I am looking for some help with a study on dewatering rates for flooded open pits in Saprolite. We need to dewater the pits in order to re-start mining (pits have been flooded for approx. 8 years). We are also looking to lower the…

Autonomous Haulage - Business Case

Results indicate that cut-offs for the application are presently in excess of 12 Mtpa of total earthmoving. All of the current implementations of an AHS are based in mines that exceed this amount of total material moved.
Truck count cut-off thresholds vary by payload capacity, but a minimum of six to eight trucks is generally required. In its present form, an AHS is therefore not likely to be applicable to all surface mines as scale is a key factor.

An indisputable potential advantage of autonomous vehicles is that they could provide increased safety, both on the road and near mining sites. Vehicle software is likely to make fewer errors in comparison to humans, meaning automation could decrease the number of casualties in mining operations.

After Fortescue completed its leading autonomous haulage project in October 2020, one of the largest fleet conversions to autonomous haulage in the industry, the company is ramping up its…
