The aim of this course is to provide a comprehensive overview of planning and operational methods associated with dragline mining systems. The course focuses on system efficiencies and the importance of dragline engineering decision-making based on costs. Participants will use DragSim in the course workshops to simulate and analyse various planning scenarios.
