ABSTRACT

One of the most critical and complicated steps in mine design is to select an
suitable mining method based upon geological, geotechnical, geographical and
economical parameters. Since there are many factors involved for the selection of
mining method, which is decision-making process, the problem is very difficult to solve.
In this paper, Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS)
with 18 criteria is used to develop a suitable mining method for the Reza Abad ballclay
& bauxite ore deposit in Damqan. Three alternatives (Open pit, Shrinkage stoping and
cut and fill stoping) are evaluated. The studies show that the suitable mining method
appropriate mining technique for this deposit with regard to the present situation is cut
and fill method.

Keywords: Mining, Ball Clay, Mining Method Selection, Multi-criteria decision
