equipment in open pit copper mining production process

Open Pit Mining - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Surface mining is a process whereby soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit are removed. There are two principle types of surface mining, strip mining and open-pit mining (see Fig. 8.8).Strip mining is the process of mining a seam of mineral by removing a long strip of overlying soil and rock.
