· Of all the mine exploitation systems, block caving has the lowest cost, except for maybe open-pit mining or in-situ recovery. Cut-and-Fill Mining A method of short-hole mining, cut-and-fill mining is used in irregular or steeply dipping ore zones, especially where the hanging wall limits the use of long-held methods.
· Open-pit mining methods are applicable to mining ore deposits that apex at or near the surface. If the deposit apexes below the surface, the overburden and barren capping overlying the ore must be removed in advance of open-pit mining. The removal of this material is known as stripping.
· Underground mines also tend to be more targeted, more costly, and less productive than open-pit mines. Because the choice of which underground method to deploy is predominantly driven by the geology of the deposit being mined, the operator has little flexibility in choosing the mining method given that the objective is to maximize net asset value over the life of the mine.

Administrative Order No. 2017-10 prohibiting the open-pit method of mining for copper gold silver and complex ores in the country remains effective at the turn of the year. This is largely due to President Dutertes decision to maintain the ban because of the perception that no corrective measures are in place to address the environmental disturbance left by an open-pit mine.
Open pit mines are those mining operations that take place on the surface, unlike the underground mines. This is possible when the reservoir sprouts on the surface or at a very small depth. It began to be realized in the middle of the XVI century and it is used all over the world.
Open-pit mining, or open-cast mining is a surface mining technique of extracting rock or minerals from the earth by their removal from an open pit or borrow. This form of mining differs from extractive methods that require tunneling into the earth, such as long wall mining.
· Gold-bearing ore lodes formed by a series of steeply plunging ancient shears are hosted within the mine in a massive rock unit known as Golden Mile Dolerite. The Fimiston open pit mine, also known as Super Pit and Golden Mile, is the largest open pit gold mine in Australia, measuring 3.5km in length, 1.5km in width and 360m in depth.

Open pit mining refers to mining directly on the ground surface, thereby producing an open pit. This method is practical and cost-effective when the uranium ore is located near the surface (e.g., within 100 m). Underground mining and ISL methods may be considered for sites that have uranium ores …
Open-pit Mining. Open-pit mining is a method in which an ore is removed by digging a pit in the ground, and is used to remove copper, gold, iron, as well as non-metallic minerals. It is normally used when the rock layer above the ore is too weak to allow underground tunnels. In this technique, circular steps, or ''benches'', are dug around ...
