Mine waste rock dump design using mixed integer programming
Total Grant Value
The project work generated a mathematical optimisation model that would support and optimise waste rock placement in order to minimise haulage costs and the potential for environmental harm through the selective placement and encapsulation of reactive waste rock.
The model uses mixed integer programming (MIP) techniques; three different types of model were developed.
