open pit method of mining bauxite in jamaica

Bauxite in Jamaica - Geo for CXC

Environmental Issues caused by bauxite mining. Due to the methods of mining (open cast), the end result of mining on the landscape is very unsightly. Jamaican regulations ensure that the land is reclaimed when mining in an area is complete. The topsoil is removed and preserved before mining begins. When mining is done, the land is smoothed , the topsoil is replaced and grass is planted.

2014-12-4  Such gap problems lead to suboptimal open pit mining designs in terms of maximizing net present value. Methods such as the Lerchs-Grossman algorithm, network flow techniques, the fundamental tree algorithm, and Seymour’s parameterized pit algorithm are examined to see how they can be used to produce pushback designs and how they address gap issues.
