This course teaches participants best-practice planning approaches for truck and loader mining systems as well as operational improvement initiatives to improve site productivity and reduce costs. Participants will use HAULSIM in the course workshops to simulate and analyse various planning scenarios.
Cost effective mining methods, approach to mine design, and impact of design on schedule.
Overview of operational characteristics, rear dump trucks, bottom dump trucks, trolley assist, equipment components, and future technology.
Overview of operational characteristics, rope shovels, excavators (backhoe & face shovel), front end loaders, and surface miners.
Truck productivities (travel time estimation, cycle time influences, and performance curves), loader productivities, and integrated truck and loader fleet productivity.
Working area dimensions (optimal bench heights / width), maintaining bench grade, haulroad design / maintenance, loading techniques, and truck dumping.
Loader buckets, matching, operating rules, philosophy, rolling resistance, and mixed truck fleets.
Time value of money, marginal costing, discounted average cost, ownership costs, operating costs, and fleet costs.
