Six ways to take primary crushing underground

 · Underground mining presents a unique set of challenges, so careful planning pays off. ''s Eero Hamalainen examines the big decisions in taking primary jaw crushers underground.

A Guide on Mining Equipment

 · Mining and quarrying industries are the primary users of crushing equipment. Raw material is acquired underground which then goes through an extensive material handling system. The material is transported from the mine into the crusher which is then screened to separate the usable material from the waste material.

Diamond Mining Methods | Diamond Museum Cape Town

In underground mining, miners tunnel through Earth''s crust to the kimberlite pipe. Tunnels are constructed in two levels, one above the other with funnels built to connect the two. Mining begins on the top level by blasting ore, which falls through the funnels and collects on the second tunnel.

The Mining Process – Waihi Gold

The Mining Process. 1. Mining – open pit and underground. To define the ore from the waste rock, samples are taken and assayed. Assay results are used to mark out areas of ore and waste rock, which are mined separately. Some of the harder areas require blasting to loosen the rock prior to excavation by hydraulic diggers.

Primary Crushing

 · The primary crushing setup is closely linked to the quarrying or mining operation, and it is only by careful adjustment of all equipment selections to the general plan of operation that optimum operating results may be realized.
