Mining economics of copper-zinc deposits in the Foothill copper belt of the Sierra Nevada in California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1971)
Cut-and-fill mining of a 400,000 ton deposit is proposed for the Foothill Copper Belt. It is 90 percent certain that a rate of return of at least 20 percent can be earned.
Economic considerations in underground mining equipment selection
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1982)
A model which predicts the production and operating costs of trucks and LHDs as a function of haul distance is developed and applied to a case study. Additionally, networks depicting the driving of development headings are ...
Air velocity measurement in underground excavations
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1995)
Several instruments used for measuring air velocity were tested in a laboratory wind tunnel and in a mining environment. They were compared against each other and a range of conventional and robotic measuring methods.
Study of airflow over rough surfaces
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1994)
Airflow over rough surfaces in underground mining applications was studied. Two sections of an underground airway were laser-profiled for analysis in order to determine the impact of the surface measurement method of the ...
A heat balance study for a mechanized cut-and-fill stope
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1993)
An empirical heat flow data base for irregularly shaped underground openings in non-homogeneous rock environments was developed.
A geostatistical study of the Alligator Ridge gold deposit
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1984)
A geostatistical study was made of the Alligator Ridge gold deposit located in White Pine county, Nevada. Global estimates and local estimates were made for potential gold recovery.
A microcomputer-based, management information system for a small, surface heap leach mine
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
This thesis provides application software dedicated to small, surface heap leach operations. The software is a major component of a microcomputer-based management information system.
