The optimal ultimate outline determines the tonnage of extractable ore, the volume of waste to be removed, the location of the subsidiary facilities, the location of ore and waste stockpiles, the life time of the mine and the estimated net present value (NPV) of the entire mining operation.

Calculating ultimate pit limits and determining pushbacks

A very important part of any open-pit mining project is determining the ultimate pit limits and optimizing the pushbacks. Currently, block models are the most widely used for calculating mineral resources and reserves. Block models can define the ultimate pit limits through algorithms like floating cone, Lerchs-Grossmann, PseudoFlow, etc.
