As the mining industry is rapidly pursuing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning - definitely the right thing to do – there is still a need to keep the miner grounded in leading practices in the field of surface mining. For example, poor drilling or the incorrect selection of the blast hole diameter can lead to poor blasts which impacts on the whole mining process such as highwall stability, fragmentation, loading and hauling, dilution, mining loss and increased comminution costs - just to name a few. Incorrect equipment selection or matching of equipment results in unoptimized cycle times and higher operating costs.
