**the frequent changes in the pit configuration. As open pit layouts
**

expand, equipment cycle times and haulage costs increases resulting

in lower production rates and system efficiencies. Thus, there is a need

for cheaper mining and haulage systems for ensuring optimum

profitability. Bulk materials transport systems such as belt conveyors

and hydraulic transport systems have been noted to offer lower

operating costs. They are also versatile and have practically unlimited

range of capacities and are increasingly being employed in the bulk

transportation of materials in large surface mines. They offer

competitive advantages over other materials handling systems in

reducing the unit production costs.

ABSTRACT

The evolution of surface mine layout configuration is a function of

the schedules and sequence of material excavation within the

optimized layouts. The production schedules and sequence of

materials movement from multi-bench and multi-face operations are

difficult to plan and execute. However, the ability to maximize the profit

or net present value of an orebody is largely dependent on the mining

schedule. The mining schedule will determine the life of the mine, the

projected cashflows, and the investment requirements over the mine

life. The pit geometries, pit expansion rates and the periodic volume of

materials from different benches in a multi-bench, multi-face open pit

mine determine the equipment requirements.

**The novel at face slurry (AFS) system is intended to take
**

advantage of the lower unit operating costs, higher payloaddeadweight ratio, and higher efficiencies of hydraulic and belt conveyor

transport systems by extending the transport systems to the production

faces. In the AFS system, the shovel at the pit face will be linked to the

treatment plant by mobile trains of either a hopper-crusher-belt

conveyor wagons-slurry facility or a hopper-crusher-slurry facilityflexible/fixed pipeline system. Thus the excavation, crushing and slurry

process will be done at the face before being pumped to the main

treatment plant. The AFS system will introduce a unique set of mine

design layout, configuration and ergonomic challenges by allowing the

mobile train of flexible pipelines or conveyor belt systems to adapt to

the production face dynamics.

**The volume of materials excavated, as well as pit layout changes
**

from circular and elliptical geometries of an oil sands mine were

modeled using analytical geometric and parabolic partial differential

equations (PDEs) and solved within Matlab. The results show that the

geometric values are almost the same as those obtained from PDEs

for different pit configurations. The economic analysis shows that both

the current mining system (CMS) and the cyclic excavator conveyor

belt control system (CycEx CBCS) are viable with high NPV (≥ $3.20 ×

1010), PI (> 19%) and IRR (> 29.02%) with short discounted payback

periods (≤ 3.24 months). The CycEx CBCS option is more economic

than the CMS option. Its NPV is 1.27 times that of the CMS option. The

PI and IRR for the CycEx CBCS option are respectively 2.24 and 1.13

times that of the CMS option. As well, the CycEx CBCS option has

almost half the DPBP of the CMS option. The CMS option has an

operating cost of $1.386 per tonne ($2.774/barrel) while that of the

CycEx CBCS option is $0.779/tonne ($1.558/barrel). These results

show that the CycEx CBCS option is the better option for mining

companies working on oil sands deposits to invest in.

**The shovel-truck system, referred to as the current mining system
**

(CMS), is widely used in most surface mines in the world. Due to the

operating flexibility, mobility and resale value, truck haulage is the

favored method for moving both ore and waste in open pit mines

(Frizzell and Martin 1992). The shovel-truck system is currently being

used in mining and waste stripping operations in most hard rock and oil

sands mining companies. The CMS comprises shovels as the primary

loaders with diesel-powered dump trucks that are dispatched or

allocated to each excavator. The loaded trucks transport the materials

to dump sites at the crusher-slurry facility or to the waste dump site.

The system comprises discrete loading and haulage units whose

outputs per hour are characterized by their cycle times.

INTRODUCTION

Surface mine production scheduling can be challenging due to the

fact that most open pit mines work with multiple benches and often

involve the simultaneous excavation of both ore and waste from a

number of working faces (Dohm 1979; Bohnet 1989; Armstrong 1990;

Erarslan 2002). These production schedules and plans are used to

maintain and maximize the expected profit (Hustrulid and Kuchta 1995);

determine the future investment in mining; optimize return on

investment; evaluate alternative investment options; and conserve and

develop the mine's resources (O’Neil 1998). To determine the pit

volumes, the expansion rates, and periodic volume of materials within

the pits and optimize resources allocation, Matlab was used to solve

geometric equations for materials excavation on a multi-bench, multiface open pit mine subject to constraints imposed by the initial and

boundary conditions.

**The CycEx CBCS comprises a shovel, a crawler-mounted mobile
**

crusher, belt conveyor wagons, a mixing tower and a slurry facility. The

shovel loads its materials into a crawler-mounted hopper located at the

face. Apron feeders transfer the materials to sizers then into double roll

crushers for size reduction. The crushed materials will be sized and

conveyed on a train of crawler-mounted belt conveyor wagons to a

surge facility from which apron feeders will transport it to a slurry

facility. The oil sands slurry is transported through the main hydrotransport system (HTS) to the main processing plant (Changirwa et al.

2000; Coward 2000). The slurry unit will also receive materials from

other faces in a multi-bench, multi-face mining and materials flow

system. This will ensure a continuous flow of materials from the

cyclical shovels to the slurry unit. The aim is to meet the required

production targets, and avoid downtimes of the slurry unit because of a

problem at any of the mining faces.

**The cross-sections of most open pit mines are either circular or
**

elliptical in shape. To accurately determine the volumes of materials

excavated in these pits, geometric calculations and PDEs were

employed. The dimensions of the pits are expanded and deepened by

lateral and longitudinal incremental pushbacks.

Surface mining

materials handling is mainly by discrete or continuous flow units and

processes. Discrete materials loading and haulage systems are

predominantly used in open pit mines because they allow high

flexibility in planning and scheduling of operations and easily cope with

**Different combinations of equipment can be used in a mine to
**

achieve the desired production targets. However, some equipment

combinations and their operating times result in lower unit operating
