Mining can be a very profitable business venture, but you need to consider the schedules. The mining schedule is the time of day that mining equipment operates at its optimal efficiency. This article will provide three points supporting the idea that mining schedules are essential for mining success.
- Mining during daylight hours provides better visibility for miners and reduces electricity costs by turning off lights and other power sources when they’re not needed
- There is less competition with other mines operating in daylight hours
- Mining during nighttime hours increases the risk of injury or death due to accidents like falls and explosions
The mining schedule is an essential aspect of the mining operation. It affects the productivity, profitability, and safety of miners. A mining schedule will need to consider many factors, including mining method, ore grade, mine layout, equipment used, etc.
Mining methods are usually classified as either surface or underground mines.
Surface mines may have a continuous miner or drill rig, while underground mines may use a longwall shearer or constant mining machine.
