shaft mine: types of mines

The diagram depicts a cross section of three different kinds of mines, along with structural elements of the underground shaft and slope mines. The shaft mine has compartments for a skip hoist, elevators called cages, and service facilities such as ventilation ducts. In a slope mine, the miners also work at different levels, and the ore is sent to the surface in bucket hoists.

11.19.1 Sand And Gravel Processing

2015-9-10 · Mining methods depend primarily on the degree of cementation of the rock. In some deposits, blasting is required to loosen the material prior to processing. The material may undergo primary crushing at the mine site before being transported to the processing plant. Figure 11.19.1-2 is a flow diagram for industrial sand and gravel processing.
