ABSTRACT

Planning the mining dynamics (schedule) is very important from the point of view of
realization the maximum economic efficiency of production. At the present stage of
development of mining science using the modern software tools, it is possible to
perceive quickly and accurately the most favorable development of mining works at the
open pit per defined time intervals for designed period of exploitation.
Dynamics of mining at the open pit South Mining District is defined in the software
Whittle for strategic planning and optimization the deposit. Planning of dynamics is
based on the following principles: achieving the maximum profit, constant annual
capacity of ore mining and uniform stripping ratio.

Keywords: open pit South Mining District, Whittle software, dynamics of mining
