This page contains a hyperlinked list of pages that have been completed as part of Mine 448 - underground mine design project. Each topic has been completed as part of the course requirements for the design groups. It is hoped that with time, these guides will accumulate into a useful resource for the course. Comments on any of these topics can be left in the discussion page attached to each topic page.

List of topics related to the mine design process:

The general environment in which the mine exists

  • Company objectives
    • Description of objectives
  • General mine site considerations
    • Location and access
    • Confirmation of legal ownership of property
    • Exploration and development committments
    • Infrastructure availability
    • Previous production
  • Business drivers
  • Risks and Benchmarking
  • Organizational Design

Information required for mine design

The stages of mine design

Geotechnical engineering

Mining methods
