Grade control geological mapping in underground

2013-11-22  Grade control is a process of maximising value and reducing risk. It requires the delivery of tonnes at an optimum grade to the mill, via the accurate definition of ore and waste. It essentially comprises data collection, integration and interpretation, local resource estimation, stope design, supervision of mining and stockpile management.

Grab sampling for underground gold J mine grade control

2015-4-16  Geologists in some underground gold mines collect grab-samples from broken ore as a method of grade control. It is often known as muck or broken rock sampling. Generally, the goal of grab sampling is to try and reconcile the mined grade at the ore source to the predicted head grade. Additionally, the samples may be used to verify prior in situ

Grade Control SpringerLink

In some mining operations, one of the most important roles played by the geologist is the supervision of grade control. In an open-pit operation, this involves the sampling of blast-hole cuttings produced by down-the-hole hammer drills and the classification of bench reserves into ore, low grade or waste material, or into various metallurgical types.
