Figure 1a mining block in an open pit and different types of dilution mine value diminutions due to dilution 1. one of the main consequences of dilution is the reduction of mill feed grade. lower feed grade means less income. for marginal grade ore, dilution may reduce the grades toegree that it becomes.
Fly rock consists of pieces of rock blown from the shot area by the explosive force. this rock can be lethal because of itseight and velocity of travel. flyrock is also caused bylowout. whenlast hole is not drilled deep enough into the rock, the explosive force blows the rock out into the drift or work area.
Granadas existing quebec certificate of authorization allows for open pit mining of up to 8,000 td and custom milling of 550 td atocal mill. earlier this year, granada recalculated the historic open pit resource at the deposit using gt gold cutoff and the underground resource using gt cutoff.
It is then loaded into ore trucks for transport totockpile atine or mill. overburden is backfilled into previously mined areas for reclamation. when an area is completely backfilled, it is graded to conform to the surrounding topography, covered with topsoil, and seeded. see figure 23, sweetwater open pit mining and milling facility.
