Equipment Selection for Surface Mining: A Review

A surface mine contains pits with mineral endowed rock (or ore). We extract ore that lies within the upper layer of the earth, from surface mines (Fricke, 2006) . This ore can include metals such as iron, copper, coal and gold. There are several methods of surface mining, including open-pit, stripping, dredging and mountain-top removal.
