Overburden And Gangue In Mining

Overburden is the natural rock and soil that sits above and around the ore body It is not subject to any chemical processes at the mine but needs to be removed to allow access to the ore For every tonne of ore we mine there are around seven tonnes of overburden which are moved to an area called the Overburden Emplacement Facility (OEF) or

Experimental And Theoretical Investigation Of Overburden

As shown in the figure the overburden of the working face has a large area of collapse forming a unique collapse failure pattern and law of steep coal seam mining Due to the large inclination of the coal seam the immediate roof gangue automatically slides down to the lower goaf and supports the lower roof and only a small amount of sinking

Surface Mining Techniques Used In The Oil Sands Oil

SURFACE MINING ≠ STRIP MINING: Although sometimes mistakenly referred to as strip mining oil sands is actually mined from an open pit below several meters of overburden Strip mining is the mining of a relatively flat deposit very close to the surface commonly used in coal or phosphate industries
