  • Optimal grade control sampling practice in open-pit

    However, the total costs for RC drill sampling are significantly more than for manual BH sampling; other benefits may motivate the introduction of RC drilling. The main conclusion is that manual BH sampling can be fit-for-purpose in the studied open-pit mine. However, with so many mineral commodities and mining methods in use globally, there is

    Sampling in mining operations Open-pit grade control sampling RC drilling is the preferred primary sampling method in open-pit mining operations. Once the broken RC drill cuttings are recovered, several methods of secondary sampling are used. RC rigs are usually accompanied by a cyclone (Figure 3a) which is used to collect the borehole cuttings, usually at 1 m intervals. Although the three
