Dragline excavator Wikipedia

The much larger type which is built on site is commonly used in strip-mining operations to remove overburden above coal and more recently for oil sands mining. The largest heavy draglines are among the largest mobile land machines ever built. The smallest and most common of the heavy type weigh around 8,000 tons while the largest built weighed

Tailings Wikipedia

Tailings are the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction of an ore.Tailings are distinct from overburden, which is the waste rock or other material that overlies an ore or mineral body and is displaced during mining without being processed.. The extraction of minerals from ore can be done two ways: placer mining, which uses water

The economics of extended pre-strip stripping

overburden (Fidler, 1979). Of the available surface mining methods, strip mining is arguably the most common method used to mine coal in Australia. Pre-strip by definition is the removal of any waste material not considered to be valuable. In surface coal mines, pre-strip often refers to the initial material that is removed to facilitate another digging process and is distinctly different from

Surface mining Wikipedia. Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit (the overburden) are removed, in contrast to underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral is removed through shafts or tunnels.

Overburden an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The overburden deformation process generally occurs in three stages. Behind the mining face, the immediate roof separates from the overlying strata, bends, and then finally caves into the mining void. As the longwall face advances further, the overlying strata sequentially bend over the broken rocks in the goaf and fracture, gradually
